Webinar: Can Carbon Capture and Storage Clean up Fossil Fuels?

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) entails capturing carbon dioxide from sources such as coal burning power plant emissions,  injecting compressed carbon dioxide gas into geologic reservoirs for long term storage to remove it from the atmosphere.

While geologic sequestration of carbon is not considered to be economically or technically feasible within North Carolina due to its geology, carbon capture is still an option and exposing your students to the technical, geologic and policy implications of CCS can inspire critical thinking about future energy options in general.

This recent (Nov 2010)  webinar by Geoff Thyne of the University of Wyoming provides an overview of CCS, highlights some of the challenges of this technology, and discusses the potential of CCS to offset carbon emissions.
