Ask this geochemist anything about carbon capture and everything in between

Feb. 17, 2015- 
Ever wonder how to use something found in the average kitchen to advance carbon capture and storage technologies, and ultimately save the planet by preventing greenhouse gasses from saturating the atmosphere?Roger Aines, a geochemist who runs the Carbon Fuel Cycle Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will be answering questions about capturing greenhouse gases by using things...

Microcapsules capture carbon safely

Feb. 5, 2015- 
Using the same baking soda found in most grocery stores, Lawrence Livermore scientists, along with colleagues from Harvard University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, have created a significant advance in carbon dioxide capture.The team developed a new type of carbon capture media composed of core-shell microcapsules, which consist of a highly permeable polymer shell and a...

March issue of S&TR focuses on carbon capture

March 18, 2011- 
The March 2011 issue of Science & Technology Review   is now online. This issue's feature article, "From Respiration to Carbon Capture," reports on a project that is building on a natural catalyst to grab carbon dioxide before it hits the atmosphere. In addition, a research highlight describes how Livermore contributed technical expertise and Laboratory resources in response to the...
