Lanthanum-Strontium-Cobalt-Ferric Oxide (LSCF) Tubes Shown to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Ceramic membrane could cut greenhouse gas emissions from power stations. ‘Greenhouse gas emissions from power stations could be cut to almost zero by controlling the combustion process with tiny tubes made from an advanced ceramic material, claims a research team led by Newcastle University today. The material, known as LSCF, has the remarkable property of […]

Calculate Your Carbon Footprint

Carbon Footprint – It doesn’t cost the Earth to save the planet. ‘Carbon Footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of green house gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide. Carbon Footprint’s mission is to educate and inform how we can all make […]

Sunlight CO2 Splitting: Transforming CO2 into Fuel

Device Uses Solar Energy to Convert Carbon Dioxide into Fuel. ‘Chemists at the University of California, San Diego have demonstrated the feasibility of exploiting sunlight to transform a greenhouse gas into a useful product. Clifford Kubiak, professor of chemistry and biochemistry, and his graduate student Aaron Sathrum have developed a prototype device that can capture […]

Carbon Dioxide Capture and Sequestration

Hide the Carbon! ‘The idea of carbon capture and sequestration, a promising avenue for reducing existing emissions, has been around for years. The process consists of capturing industrial CO2 emissions and burying them deep below the ground. Now several large-scale carbon dioxide sequestration tests are about to begin in the U.S. The results, slated to […]
