Algae-based CO2 Capture at Power Plants – PowerPlantCCS

January 31st, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Algae-CO2-Capture

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Here’s an interesting site (and blog) focussed on CO2 sequestration at power plants worldwide. Aptly called Power Plant CCS, it provides the latest updates on CCS at power plants worldwide. Interestingly, it has a special emphasis on researching the newest and novel methods for CCS at these plants.

I find this emphasis to be of enormous significance. While the three primary CCS methods – pre-combustion, post combustion and oxy-fuel combustion hog the headlines, along with the storage methods such as storing in depleted oil fields, in coal mines for methane recovery and saline aquifers, nobody really knows if any of these is sustainable in the long run. All we have as assurances are computer models. Pumping the CO2 into the ground sounds sort of scary to many people worldwide; also, capturing CO2 using any of the three methods is quite expensive – both in terms of money and energy.

It is against this background that research into more sustainable capture and storage mechanisms are vital. The site PowerPlantCCS provides research updates on such novel and innovative ideas.

For instance, there are three novel approaches about which detailed inputs are provided: CO2 sequestration using mineral carbonation, algae-based CO2 capture,
Carbon Mitigation through use of Biomass instead of Coal .

Of course, of the three mentioned above, what will be most interesting to readers is the detailed inputs given on algae-based CO2 capture at this site and blog. I will keep an eye out on any new updates on that site in this context.

Given that carbon capture and storage is likely to be one of the most important concepts that the world will be keen on researching, and also given that power plants have an urgent need to become less CO2 polluting, this is indeed an important site.

Good stuff.
