Novel Approaches to Carbon Management: Separation, Capture, Sequestration, and Conversion to Useful Products-Workshop Report (2003)
Growing concern about climate change as a result of the buildup of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has led to increased interest in strategies for managing CO2 emissions. Before awarding grants for carbon management research, DOE asked the NRC to help in this effort. As a first step, the NRC held a workshop to identify promising lines of research. This report, a summary of that workshop, presents a discussion of research areas in advanced sequestration, or storage, technologies; advanced subsurface technologies, or ways to store CO2 underground; advanced geochemical methods, which involve capturing CO2 from production facilities and injecting it into rock formations; and novel approaches for converting CO2 to useful products.
