Carbon Capture | Capture Value

By [Energy Central] Charley Rattan Carbon Capture | Capture Value According to the IEA7 , total annual capacity capture capacity in 2023 amounted to 45 Mt CO2 and although deployment momentum has improved – with around 200 new capture plants announced to be in operation by 2030 – even if all of these are implemented,…

Decarbonising shipping – any port in a storm

By [Energy Central] Charley Rattan Methanol Methanol (one oxygen, one carbon, and four hydrogen atoms) emits CO2 on combustion, so ‘green methanol’ requires an offsetting lifecycle pathway in order to be sustainable. Thus, it needs to use ‘green’ hydrogen and air-captured CO2 as feedstocks, or to use 100% bio-sourced methane. There is an accelerating order…

Global Solar Capacity Growing Exponentially

By [Energy Central] Gavin Mooney After taking 22 years to reach its first terawatt of solar power, the world will reach its second AND third terawatt in just five years. And this is why global power sector emissions are going to start declining. ➡️ 10 GW was passed in 2008 ➡️ 100 GW was passed…

Electric vs. Gasoline Cars: Uncovering the Real Climate Savior

Photo credit: Nick Starichenko / Shutterstock.com Contrary to common misconceptions , electric vehicles (EVs) generally have a smaller carbon footprint compared to traditional gasoline cars. This advantage remains true even when considering the electricity utilized for charging EVs. One key distinction is that EVs produce no direct tailpipe emissions.Brought to you by: EV Driven Read…

Ammonia engine testing

By [Energy Central] Charley Rattan Engineers are developing a two-stroke, dual-fuel ammonia engine that can reduce a ship’s emissions to zero. Net-zero shipping: a 50-bore two-stroke dual-fuel engine that runs on carbon-free ammonia. “The goal of the engine is to reduce the greenhouse gas footprint by more than 90 percent compared to a standard diesel…

The U.S. Leads The World In Reducing Carbon Emissions

By [Energy Central] Robert Rapier Following my previous story on the pause in U.S. liquefied natural gas exports, some readers had a hard time believing that the U.S. leads the world in reducing carbon emissions. Some suggested this was only true for per capita emissions, or that it isn’t true if you consider methane leaks….

The Rockefellers, Bloomberg Take Credit for Biden LNG Pause

By [Energy Central] Energy in Depth Billionaire “philanthropists” like the Rockefellers often claim to care about noble causes like the security of the United States’ European allies and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. But it turns out that a campaign targeting liquified natural gas (LNG) exports–which will cause harm to both of those causes–takes priority. A…..
