Wang, Yushan; et al. (2021): Carbon Dioxide Capture by Non-aqueous Blend in Rotating Packed Bed Reactor: Absorption and Desorption Investigation

Wang, Yushan; Dong, Yuning; Zhang, Liangliang; Chu, Guangwen; Zou, Haikui; Sun, Baochang; Zeng, Xiaofei (2021): Carbon Dioxide Capture by Non-aqueous Blend in Rotating Packed Bed Reactor: Absorption and Desorption Investigation. In Separation and Purification Technology, p. 118714. DOI: 10.1016/j.seppur.2021.118714.

"In this work, 2-amino-2-methyl-1-propanol (AMP), 2-(2-aminoethylamino)ethanol (AEEA), N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) tri-solvent blend is used as a novel non-aqueous absorbent for CO2 capture process in rotating packed bed (RPB) reactor, which is employed to intensify the mass transfer in both absorption and desorption process."

Statesman Journal: Carbon dioxide removal every bit as key

"Oregon has long been a leader in advancing climate policies. But we need to accelerate and expand that work – for our state and the nation. To fight climate change and grow our economy, we should increase federal investments and create stronger incentives for climate solutions like carbon dioxide removal and carbon storage."

Full, Johannes; et al. (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS)

Full, Johannes; Merseburg, Steffen; Miehe, Robert; Sauer, Alexander (2021): A New Perspective for Climate Change Mitigation—Introducing Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production from Biomass with Carbon Capture and Storage (HyBECCS). In Sustainability 13 (7), p. 4026. DOI: 10.3390/su13074026.

"This paper introduces for the first time a novel concept for the production of hydrogen with net negative emissions. The derived concept combines biohydrogen production using biotechnological or thermochemical processes with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage."

Blog: ICRLP: A Praise for Basalt Potential: In situ mineral carbonation

"A variety of igneous rocks and minerals are currently under evaluation as potential prospects to facilitate permanent carbon sequestration. Olivine, serpentine, and peridotite are some of the many that bind with carbon dioxide to form carbonates, hence providing a more permanent removal of captured carbon. This post is about a rock that deserves more attention: basalt."
