Carbon capture and storage — selected resources on the web

On the Web

Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies
The Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology conducts research into technologies to capture, utilize, and store carbon dioxide from large stationary sources.

Carbon Sequestration, Finance
Introduction to carbon sequestration and related issues from the United States Department of Energy.

Climate Techbook
The Climate TechBook, from the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, is an online resource for information on reducing greenhouse emissions from all sectors in the United States. The TechBook is comprised mostly of technology summaries that include how the technology works, how it can reduce emissions and what policy options exist to help promote it. The TechBook also contains sectoral overviews that provide high-level summaries of mitigation opportunities and policy options in the major greenhouse gas-emitting sectors of the economy.

CO2 Capture Project
The CO2 Capture Project is a joint project comprising eight of the world's leading energy companies, aiming to reduce the cost of carbon dioxide capture from combustion sources and developing methods for safely storing carbon dioxide underground.

Direct Experiments on the Ocean Disposal of Fossil Fuel CO2
Web page contains images and video related to a paper published in Science on a deep ocean carbon dioxide release experiment conducted at a depth of 3627 m in Monterey Bay to test various ideas concerning the deep ocean sequestration of carbon dioxide in a real-world environment.

Enhancing Carbon Sequestration in Terrestrial Ecosystems
The research consortium, CSiTE, will perform fundamental research that will lead to acceptable methods to enhance carbon sequestration in terrestrial ecosystems as one component of a carbon management strategy.

The NatCarb website presents background information and interactive maps on the process of storing carbon dioxide.

Special Report on Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessment of the carbon dioxide capture and storage issue, published in 2005. The Summary for Policymakers is available as a 0.5MB download.

The Feasibility of Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage in the UK
Study of the potential for carbon dioxide capture and storage in the United Kingdom, prepared by the Department of Trade and Industry.
