Downloadable (with restrictions)! Benefit and cost uncertainty in provisioning of ecosystem services are investigated in the context of soil carbon sequestration. Multiple parcel-level carbon sequestration options are considered. Uncertainty has been a widely stated reason for not including soil carbon sequestration in the portfolio of greenhouse gases reduction measures. Biophysical simulation models are used to generate a distribution of resulting environmental benefits. An econometric model of conservation practice adoption is used to generate a distribution of costs. The results provide a magnitude of uncertainty discount for soil carbon offsets and the budget margin of safety, and may assist in formulating carbon sequestration policy.

Global warming as a result of rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 emission is significantly influencing worlds economy and human activities. Carbon sequestration in phytoliths is regarded as a highly stable carbon sink mechanism in terrestrial ecosystems to mitigate climate change. However, the response of plant phytolith-occluded carbon (PhytOC) to external silicon amendments remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the effects of basalt powder (BP) amendment on phytolith carbon sequestration in rice (Oryza sativa), a high-PhytOC accumulator. The results showed that the contents of phytolith and PhytOC in rice increased with BP amendment. The PhytOC production flux in different rice plant parts varied considerably (0.005-0.041 Mg CO2 ha-1 a-1 ), with the highest flux in the sheath. BP amendment can significantly enhance flux of phytolith carbon sequestration in croplands by 150 %. If the global rice cultivation of 1.55 9 108 ha had a similar flux of PhytOC production in this study, 0.61 9 107 to

Excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a major contributor to global warming, and one of the methods proposed to reduce mankinds CO2 emissions is carbon sequestration - storing CO2 in deep within the earth and through farming and forestry practices. Scientists at MSU are on the forefront of both geologic and terrestrial carbon sequestration research. Geologic sequestration involves injecting liquefied or "supercritical" CO2 deep underground where it is stored in porous rock formations. The oil industry has been injecting relatively small amounts of CO2 underground for decades to enhance oil production, but now scientists are looking for ways to put billions of tons of CO2 safely underground. For decades, various industrial operations have injected and stored CO2 and other gases underground, and naturally occurring deposits of oil and gas trapped underground show scientists that CO2 can be safely and permanently stored beneath the ground. Now earth scientists at MSU are using new theories ...
A microbial mineral carbonation trial was conducted at the Woodsreef Asbestos Mine (NSW, Australia) to test cyanobacteria-accelerated Mg-carbonate mineral precipitation in mine tailings. The experiment aimed to produce a carbonate crust on the tailings pile surface using atmospheric carbon dioxide and magnesium from serpentine minerals (asbestiform chrysotile; Mg3Si2O5(OH)4) and brucite [Mg(OH)2]. The crust would serve two purposes: Sequestering carbon and stabilizing the hazardous tailings. Two plots (0.5 m3) on the tailings pile were treated with sulfuric acid prior to one plot being inoculated with a cyanobacteria-dominated consortium enriched from the mine pit lakes. After 11 weeks, mineral abundances in control and treated tailings were quantified by Rietveld refinement of powder X-ray diffraction data. Both treated plots possessed pyroaurite [Mg6Fe2(CO3)(OH)16·4H2O] at 2 cm depth, made visible by its orange-red color. The inoculated plot exhibited an increase in the hydromagnesite [Mg5(CO3)4(OH)2

Since fossil energy sources are very important throughout the world, carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) plays a major role in order to achieve climate protection targets. Our solutions for carbon capture are: scrubbing CO2 from the flue gas of fossil-fired power plants (post-combustion carbon capture) as well as concepts and technologies for fuel gasifiers and power production linked with capturing carbon from the synthesis gas before its combustion (pre-combustion carbon capture). ...
Leakage from forest carbon sequestration-the amount of a programs direct carbon benefits undermined by carbon releases elsewhere-depends critically on demanders ability to substitute non-targeted timber for timber targeted by the program. Analytic, econometric, and sector-level optimization models are combined to estimate leakage from different forest carbon sequestration activities. Empirical estimates for the U.S. show leakage ranges from minimal (90 percent), depending on the activity and region.

Major disturbances have long-term influences on regional-scale carbon sequestration. Over a period of 30 years, the mountain beech forests were hit by a series of disturbance events that caused above-ground biomass to fall by 0.3 Mg C ha−1 year−1. If similar losses had occurred throughout the 2.9 million ha of Nothofagus forests in New Zealand (Wardle 1984), an estimated 870 Pg C year−1 would have moved from living biomass to detrital and atmospheric pools, equivalent to about 11% of New Zealands annual fossil fuel emissions (based on per capita consumption of 2 Mg C year−1). The simulation models suggest that, under realistic disturbance scenarios, above-ground carbon storage may fall by as much as 40% over a 40-year period and take equally long to recover (Fig. 8). Similar transformations are occurring in other regions. An outbreak of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) in British Columbia, Canada, is greater in extent and severity than any previously recorded, killing ...
Carbon Capture and Storage: Carbon Dioxide Pressure Dissipates in Underground Reservoirs, Study Shows. The debate surrounding carbon capture and storage intensifies as scientists from the Earth Sciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) examine the capacity for storing carbon dioxide underground, in a study published today in the new journal Greenhouse Gases: Science & Technology.. The study debates some of the conclusions drawn in an earlier study by Ehlig-Economides and Economides1, countering their claims that carbon dioxide cannot feasibly be stored underground. These earlier findings, according to the Berkeley Lab researchers, only considered closed-system subsurface formations, with limited mechanisms for relieving the pressure.. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is controversial in the eyes of the general public. Pressure build-up in the subsurface induced by the injection of carbon dioxide from industrial-scale projects is a key constraint for the amount ...

Overview:. In recent years, the U.S. Geological Survey has been conducting a national biologic carbon sequestration assessment in the conterminous U.S. The assessment is designed to meet the requirements of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which calls for coverage of all 50 states and all ecosystems (including forests, grasslands, wetlands, agricultural lands, and rivers, lakes, and estuaries). The assessment focuses on current and potential amounts of carbon stored in ecosystems, and effects of both natural and anthropogenic processes (such as fire, climate change, and land use change) on carbon sequestration. This project focuses on assessing current carbon stocks and potential change in carbon sequestration for the main Hawaiian Islands under future climate change scenarios. Existing carbon related data (land cover, fire, climate, soils, productivity, land use, wetland, etc.,) were collated and analyzed to develop an estimate of the current carbon stocks and fluxes under ...

Low temperatures in the Arctic have through geological times caused a build-up of carbon (C) in the soil while carbon dioxide (CO2) has been removed from the atmosphere, because ecosystem respiration (ER) has been exceeded by the photosynthesis (GEP). Increasing air temperature, as occurring in current years, is likely to increase ER due to increased decomposition and increased substrate input e.g. due to permafrost thaw. If GEP is left unchanged and decomposition of old C from the soil is occurring this might result in an increase of the emission of CO2 to the atmosphere probably resulting in further warming. This PhD thesis addresses different aspects of climate change effects on C dynamics in the Arctic. The focus has been on i) changes in ER, age of the C sources, GEP and the net ecosystem exchange (NEE) in response to long- and short-term climate manipulations and ii) comparisons of CO2 fluxes and organic nutrient utilization between ecosystems occurring from different latitudes and ...
FAB-GGR is a new four-year, £2 million multi-institute consortium project that aims to better define the real world feasibility and consequences of large-scale afforestation and biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) approaches to greenhouse gas removal (GGR). These two greenhouse gas removal approaches have been chosen because they: have a common basis in growing biomass on available land; and play the largest roles of any GGR approaches in future low emission scenarios that keep global mean temperature increase to below 1.5 °C and 2 °C.
The Global CCS Institute is an international member-led organisation whose mission is to accelerate the deployment of CCS to tackle climate change and provide energy security.
We are mapping the production of carbon cycle science, from the needs of those who make decisions to the scientists and agencies that supply scientific information and then back to the decision makers who might use the information. By comparing the supply and demand sectors of carbon cycle science, we will assess where linkages between the sectors are strong and where missed opportunities for linkage exist.
SARAIVA, Maria das Graças Gomes et al. Urban expansion and spatial distribution of malaria in the municipality of Manaus, State of Amazonas. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2009, vol.42, n.5, pp.515-522. ISSN 0037-8682. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822009000500008.. In the municipality of Manaus, intensification of the migratory process, along with precarious epidemiological and entomological surveillance, resulted in reintroduction of malaria transmission on the urban perimeter (in the eastern zone), in July 1988, after 13 years without any records of autochthonous disease. This study reports on the epidemiological situation relating to malaria and to the areas that were subjected to human actions (deforestation, human settlement, fish-rearing activity, etc) in Manaus, between 1986 and 2005. In this municipality, the population increase from 1986 to 2005 was 105.2%. This resulted from occupation of space, in the form of invasions and housing projects. From 2003, the increase in ...
Harken! Good news (maybe) "encouraging news" is a better description, as Negative Emissions Technology ("NET") starts coming into focus. Conceptually, carbon removal or direct air capture removes CO2 from the atmosphere, which would be great for suppressing climate change.. In that regard, Elizabeth Kolbert recently interviewed (Yale Environment 360) Stephen Pacala (Princeton professor) chairman of the US scientific panel studying carbon removal under the auspices of the National Academies. Which means the project has top-notch clearances, in fact, blue chip.. Of course, the big question about direct carbon capture is whether it can fix a very big problem created by humans burning fossil fuels like crazed Madhatters portending an ecological disaster-in-waiting because of excessive levels of CO2 in the atmosphere, possibly leading to human extinction way ahead of schedule, too early, or looked at another way, extinction occurring well ahead of scientists models. But really, honestly and truly ...
The Kyoto Protocols Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) was created to aid clean development by allowing wealthy nations to invest in the developing world as a way to cut their greenhouse gas emissions and claim credits against their own emission reduction targets.It is intended to help the developing world leapfrog dirty development and avoid dependence on coal and other fossil fuels. According to the rules governing the CDM, projects must promote fair geographic distribution and should lead to the transfer of environmentally safe and sound technology. CDM projects must be cost effective and also contribute to sustainable development.Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), the process of capturing, transporting and storing CO2 from coal fired power stations, does not meet any of these criteria, yet some governments continue to push for its inclusion.
Before genomics techniques, the dark ocean was a black box, because microorganisms from this environment refuse to grow in research laboratories," said Ramunas Stepanauskas, a senior research scientist at Bigelow Laboratory and director of the Single Cell Genomics Center. "Now, using contemporary tools that were developed by our group, we can open this black box and understand who is living there, what they are doing, and how they are doing it.". The research behind this Science paper began with an effort to identify new groups of microscopic organisms in the mesopelagic zone. According to Pachiadaki, the previously accepted explanation for carbon capture in the dark ocean did not seem correct under close inspection. Archaea, a much more abundant group of microorganisms in the dark ocean, had been credited with doing most of the work, but the math just didnt add up. The team set out to discover the unidentified organisms that were the true champions of carbon dioxide capture in the vast dark ...

Calcite is a mineral made of calcium, carbon, and oxygen that is all the more generally known as the sedimentary forerunner to limestone and marble. In the sea, calcite is a residue framed from the shells of life forms, similar to tiny fish, that have kicked the bucket and sunk to the ocean bottom. Calcium carbonate is likewise the material that makes up coral reefs - the exoskeleton of the coral polyp.. As air carbon dioxide levels have ascended past 400 sections for each million - a typical benchmark for atmosphere researchers affirming that the impacts of the ozone harming substance in the climate will be felt for eras to come - the surface seas have assimilated increasingly of that carbon dioxide. This is a piece of a characteristic buffering process - the seas go about as a noteworthy repository of carbon dioxide. Right now, they hold approximately 50 fold the amount of the ozone depleting substance as the climate.. In any case, there is a moment, slower, buffering process that expels ...

They are especially valuable as carbon capture materials because they function in the presence of water, which means you can eliminate the toxic organic solvents that are used in other forms of carbon capture; youre no longer "fixing one problem and creating another," as Yaghi puts it. Capturing the carbon is half of the solution; turning it into usable materials is the second half. "The challenge has always been, could you convert it into some starting material that can be used as feedstocks for useful chemicals?" says Yaghi. "This work is the first step toward that challenge." Work on carbon capture from the waste streams of power plants has stalled in recent years (see ...

Regional studies of carbon dynamics in…
Meeting Florida House Bill 697 requirements to reduce Floridas carbon emissions will require a judicious look at how human-dominated landscapes are performing. It has been suggested that conserved urban greenspace could be used for carbon credit. But are all types of open spaces equal in terms of their ability to sequester carbon? Intuitively, this is not the case because we know that different types of vegetation (e.g., hammock vs. turf) and how they are managed will sequester different quantities of CO2. Using representative 400 m2 plot measurements (Zhao et al. 2010) and modeling of tree carbon sequestration (Escobedo et al., 2009) and estimates of lawn sequestration from various land use types in Florida, including their maintenance emissions, we calculated the source/sink potential of a 4 hectare (9.88 acres) site. Only above-ground vegetation values were calculated; soils and below ground organic matter were not included in the calculations.. The take home message is that highly ...

Indian Oil Corporation Limited and LanzaTech ave signed a Statement of Intent to construct the worlds first refinery off gas-to-bioethanol production facility in India.. LanzaTech has developed a gas fermentation process to make fuels and chemicals. Instead of sugars and yeast, the company uses a biological catalyst to ferment waste gas emissions. The large volume of waste gas produced at industrial facilities such as refineries cannot be stored or transported; rather it must be combusted to make power locally and emitted as carbon dioxide (CO2). Power can be carbon-free, and in India today, the cost of renewable power has fallen below the cost of coal, accelerating the transition to a carbon-free grid. LanzaTechs technology allows refineries to divert waste gases from the grid, supporting the transition to fully renewable power while recycling this carbon into liquid fuels and petrochemicals.. India is adopting a cleaner and greener economic growth pathway today, with the Government running ...
A technology to bury underground the greenhouse gas emissions produced from burning coal must be ready for global deployment by 2017-2019, U.S. energy secretary Steven Chu said on Monday.
ExxonMobil and FuelCell Energy have formed a pact worth up to $60 million to optimize carbonate fuel cells to capture carbon dioxide. FuelCell Energy uses a molten carbonate salt as the electrolyte in fuel cells that convert fuel into electricity. The two firms have worked together since 2016 to test running power plant exhaust rather than air through the fuel cells. While the cells produce electricity, their membranes also concentrate CO2, doing so more efficiently than the amine solvents often used to capture CO2, ExxonMobil says. The oil company is also working with Mosaic Materials on metal-organic frameworks that capture CO2 (see page 38).. ...

The CO2 is captured, or "separated," from flue gas by means of a chemical or physical process. The captured CO2 is then compressed (i.e., pressurized) in order to change the gas into a liquid. The liquid CO2, also referred to as a supercritical fluid, is denser than in its original gaseous state and is easier to transport by pipeline. CO2 in small volumes also can be transported as a liquid in tanks by ship, road, and rail. The CO2 can then be injected into depleted oil and gas reservoirs or into deep underground saline formations for storage; or, it can be injected into depleting oil reservoirs to extract more oil and then to store the unused CO2 ...
Added June 6, 2011.. Introduction. Pasture management traditionally focused on balancing the quantity and quality of forages for livestock production. This has often resulted in planting a single forage species or simple grass-legume mixtures. Native grasses contain many species of grasslands, nitrogen-fixing legumes and deep-rooted flowering plants (forbs). Todays economic, environmental, and social climate challenges farmers to decrease purchased feed, fertilizer and pesticide inputs, and to increase attention given to soil protection, carbon sequestration, resistance to weeds and insect invasion, and the aesthetic value of the landscape. Can we learn anything from diverse native grasslands that can be applied to managed pasture? Pastures of a diverse botanical composition may possess better persistence, yield stability, and productivity. Managing pasture diversity to include species that fill different roles may offer a tool to aid producers in meeting these new challenges.. Northeastern ...

Companies are finding ways to turn industry-generated waste CO2 into a profitable business. Acting Assistant Secretary of Energy Christopher Smith tells host Steve Curwood why the DOE is investing in such ventures, including Skyonics, which October 21 started recycling CO2 from a San Antonio, Texas cement plant into chemicals such as baking soda and bleach that can be sold at a profit.
Actually the science behind this is quite sound. This is a form of chemical looping combustion if anyone bothered to look at the research behind the article and not just knee jerk arm chair scientist at it. The conversion of lime to Calcium Oxide is is endothermic having a reaction temp of ~900C the CO2 adsorption reaction is exothermic having a reaction temp of ~650 they obviously are using fluidized bed reactors with integrated combustion which are designed to move hot micronized solid suspensions at high temperatures from one reaction zone to the other thus the lime is both the reactant and the heat transport medium leading to high thermal transfer efficiency are all fluidized beds exhibit. By using the exothermic reaction heat to preheat the incoming reactants to the higher temperature endothermic 900+c zone heat recovery is achieved the energy extraction point for the generation of steam and therefore power is between the 900 and the 650c stages. There is no separate combustor to heat ...

Now geologists at MIT have identified the likely cause of both ice ages, as well as a natural mechanism for carbon sequestration. Just prior to both periods, massive tectonic collisions took place near the Earths equator -- a tropical zone where rocks undergo heavy weathering due to frequent rain and other environmental conditions. This weathering involves chemical reactions that absorb a large amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The dramatic drawdown of carbon dioxide cooled the atmosphere, the new study suggests, and set the planet up for two ice ages, 80 million and 50 million years ago ...

The suspended particle assemblage in complex coastal waters is a mixture of living phytoplankton, other autochthonous matter, and materials of terrestrial origin. The characterization of suspended particles is important for understanding regional primary productivity and rates of carbon sequestration, the fate of anthropogenic materials released to the coastal environment, as well as its effects on bulk optical properties, which influence the passive optical remote sensing of the coastal ocean. Here, the extensive bio-optical Plumes and Blooms data set is used to characterize the surface particle assemblage in the Santa Barbara Channel, California, a highly productive, upwelling-dominated, coastal site affected by episodic sediment inputs. Available variables sensitive to characteristics of the particle assemblage include particle beam attenuation and backscattering coefficients, High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) pigment concentration observations, chlorophyll and particulate organic ...

Interpretive Summary: Biochars can be produced by the thermochemical conversion of agricultural wastes for a wide range of agricultural and environmental applications such as the soil fertilization, site remediation, and carbon sequestration. However, when used to stabilize heavy metals in contaminated soils, the biochar amendment can result in a complex and unforeseen release of nutrients as well as undesirable elements. In this study, a statistical tool was employed to better interpret the complex data set and to determine the primary factors that control the retention and release of various elements in biochar amended soils. Statistical analysis and biochar characterization results suggested that the oxygen-containing functional groups are key to the ability of biochars to retain heavy metals, if amended on ...

ocean, with applications ranging from carbon sequestration to the fate of oil and gas released from an oil well blowout. Experimental techniques included LASER induced fluorescence, shadowgraph visualization, salinity and dye concentration profiling, stratification generated by the two-tank method (using a 1.2 m square by 2.4 m deep, glass-walled tank), and crossflow generated by a towed source (using a 28 m long flume with 0.8 m square cross-section). Size spectra of droplets and bubbles were measured using a phase Doppler particle analyzer. To control particle size, sediment was also used; sediment size was measured using a micrometer. Slip velocities among all buoyancy sources ranged from 3 to 35 cm/s. Stratified experiments investigated the dependence of plume properties on the nondimensional slip velocity, UN= us/(BN)1/4 , where u, is the slip velocity, B is the total kinematic buoyancy flux, and N is the Brunt-Vaissld buoyancy frequency. First, UN predicts the transitions among ...

The British government will not get any European Union funding under the first round of a subsidy scheme for carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects because it has failed to provide the required financing guarantees, EU sources said on Sunday.
EDF welcomed todays announcement by President Obama establishing an Interagency Task Force on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).. In the next six months, the Task Force is charged with proposing a plan to overcome the barriers to the widespread, cost-effective deployment of CCS within 10 years, with a goal of bringing 5 to 10 commercial demonstration projects online by 2016.. By 2016? a reporter asked me. Is that doable? I responded yes, absolutely. CCS as a technical matter is ready for deployment now.. While there are two fundamental obstacles to widespread deployment of CCS, its my opinion (and that of EDF) that both can be addressed in well under 10 years. Those obstacles are: ...

The global generation of power depends heavily on coal-fired power plants; in 2008 nearly half of electricity was generated via coal combustion. This is expected to drop as a percentage but rise in absolute terms by 2035. Moreover, industrial processes such as the production of cement or iron emit CO2 as an intrinsic part of the process. As fossil fuels will remain part of the global energy mix for some time, carbon capture and storage is a "must develop" technology for reducing carbon emissions ...
In this paper, a reinforcement learning (RL)-based Sarsa temporal-difference (TD) algorithm is applied to search for a unified bidding and operation strategy for a coal-fired power plant with monoethanolamine (MEA)-based post-combustion carbon capture under different carbon dioxide (CO2) allowance market conditions. The objective of the decision maker for the power plant is to maximize the discounted cumulative profit during the power plant lifetime. Two constraints are considered for the objective formulation. Firstly, the tradeoff between the energy-intensive carbon capture and the electricity generation should be made under presumed fixed fuel consumption. Secondly, the CO2 allowances purchased from the CO2 allowance market should be approximately equal to the quantity of CO2 emission from power generation. Three case studies are demonstrated thereafter. In the first case, we show the convergence of the Sarsa TD algorithm and find a deterministic optimal bidding and operation strategy. In the ...

The Abu Dhabi scheme is one of a number of projects in the region that can be considered as not merely CCS, but carbon capture and utilisation, known as CCUS. For instance, in neighbouring Saudi Arabia the Saudi Arabian Fertiliser Company is investing in equipment at its facilities that can convert 850,000 tonnes of CO per year into 1.1m tonnes of urea, while similar schemes are also going ahead in Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain. Alongside carbon capture from industry, the Danish shipping and energy conglomerate Maersk signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Masdar in January 2014 to collaborate on carbon capture projects for power generation facilities, according to a January 2014 report from The National.. The MoU would entail Abu Dhabi making use of the Danish companys, as yet commercially untested, Tri-Gen technology, which would generate water and CO for oilfield injection, as well as producing 200 MW of power per unit. Were Abu Dhabi to build seven such units, it is estimated that an ...
