Carbon dioxide – Sequestration issues & green applications


Carbon dioxide has received a bad rap over recent years, in particular due to greenhouse gas factors associated with global warming, rising oceanic tides, and potentially growing cases of insect-borne diseases such as Malaria – all of which are associated with the increase in greenhouse gas and ambient temperature growing globally.

The end results, are in fact catastrophic, if atmospheric levels of CO2 rise according to some estimates; where over the last 50 years for example, this level has grown over 20% in concentration, and is possibly going to rise geometrically if unabated.

Sequestration of CO2 from all large scale emitting sources including large chemical manufacturing and power (primarily coal fired) plants are the largest targets for sequestration.

However, achieving this end is rather daunting; in part due to retrofit or techniques required for power plant flue gas recovery, as well as capital cost requirements for all sequestration options, and of course proven technologies which best achieve this end.
