  • Our planet’s atmosphere is thought to have changed gradually and over a very wide range of CO2 concentrations throughout history. From ancient atmospheric gases trapped in ice bubbles, we have strong evidence indicating that atmospheric CO2 values reached minimum concentrations of approximately 180 parts per million during the Last Glacial Maximum, which was only 15,000 years ago. At the other extreme, calculations suggest that some 500 million years ago the atmospheric CO2 concentrations may have been about 4000 to 5000 parts per million....

  • There are two main reasons why the chemical process industry should be motivated to reduce energy consumption and CO 2 emissions: rising concerns in companies, the public and scientifi c community about climate change or global warming, and the increasing fraction of energy in manufacturing costs. ‘ Climate change ’ [1] in this context, means a change of climate, which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods....

  • Global change, including climate change, ecosystem shifts and biodiversity loss as a result of explosive human population growth and consumption, is emerging as one of the most important issues of our time (Vitousek, 1994). Climate change in particular appears to be altering the function, structure and stability of the Earth’s ecosystems (Lovelock, 2009). It has been marked by an 80% increase in atmospheric CO2 level and a 0.

  • Following site characterization, working hypotheses about important mechanisms that control the behavior of injected CO2 are developed and tested. This approach has been studied extensively over the last decade from a risk assessment perspective (Savage et al., 2004; Lewicki et al., 2006). The mechanisms that have controlled past behavior, and will control future behavior, need to be understood through fluid flow simulation based on an understanding of the fluid and chemical processes active at the pore level and guided by available injection/production and monitoring data.

  • Helicopter aerodynamics is the branch of physics dealing with the forces and pressures exerted by air in motion. The atmosphere, the mass of air, which completely envelops the earth, is composed of varying and nonvarying constituents. The nonvarying constituents include oxygen (21%) and nitrogen (78%). The varying constituents include CO2, argon, hydrogen, helium, neon, krypton, and water vapor, which will vary from negligible amounts to approximately 4% by volume (100% relative humidity). Air is a fluid and is affected by changes in temperature, pressure, and humidity....

  • This document should be of interest to a broad audience interested in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere. It was developed for regulatory organizations, project developers, and national and state policymakers to increase awareness of existing and developing monitoring, verification, and accounting (MVA) techniques. Carbon dioxide (CO2) sinks are a natural part of the carbon cycle; however, natural terrestrial sinks are not sufficient to absorb all the CO2 emitted to the atmosphere each year.

  • Atmospheric levels of CO2 have risen significantly from preindustrial levels of 280 parts per million (ppm) to present levels of 384 ppm (Tans, 2008). Evidence suggests the observed rise in atmospheric CO2 levels is the result of expanded use of fossil fuels for energy. Predictions of increased global energy use during this century indicate a continued increase in carbon emissions (EIA, 2007) and rising concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere unless major changes are made in the way energy is produced and used; in particular, how carbon is managed (Socolow et al.

  • Carbon dioxide is produced in several anthropogenic activities at a rate of ca. 35 Gt/y. The main sources are: (1) the combustion of fossil carbon (production of electric energy, transport, heating, industry), (2) the utilization of biomass (combustion to obtain energy, fermentation), and (3) the decomposition of natural carbonates (mainly in the steel and cement industry).

  • Photosynthesis is the primary source of energy for all life forms (except chemolithotrophic prokaryotes). Much of the energy of photosynthesis is used to drive the synthesis of organic molecules from atmospheric CO2. How is solar energy captured and transformed into metabolically useful chemical energy? How is the chemical energy produced by photosynthesis used to create organic molecules from carbon dioxide?

  • Definition “The earth is a natural greenhouse and is kept warm by water vapors, carbon dioxide (CO2), and other gases in the atmosphere, which absorb the sun’s energy and radiate it back toward the earth. This type of warming is called ‘natural greenhouse effect’. ‘Enhanced greenhouse effect’, on the other hand, causes global warming due to excessive levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.” Facts Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.

  • Phototrophic green bacteria, phototrophic purple bacteria, and heliobacteria are three groups of bacteria that use anoxygenic photosynthesis. Anoxygenic phototrophs have photosynthetic pigments called bacteriochlorophylls. Bacteriochlorophyll a and b have maxima wavelength absorption at 775 nm and 790 nm, respectively in ether. Unlike oxygenic phototrophs, anoxygenic photosynthesis only functions using a single photosystem. This restricts them to cyclic electron flow only, and they are therefore unable to produce O2 from the oxidization of H2O.

  • In Salah – In Salah Gas is a joint venture between BP (33 percent), Sonatrach (35 percent) and Statoil (32 percent). The project comprises a phased development of eight gas fields located in the Ahnet-Timimoun Basin in Algerian Central Sahara. The initial development focuses on the exploitation of the gas reserves in the three northern fields. These gas fields contain CO2 concentrations ranging from one to nine percent, which is above the export gas specification of 0.3 percent and, therefore, requires CO2 removal facilities.

Environmental changes such as deforestation, collapsing fisheries, and CO2 accumulation in the atmosphere indicate that human demand may well have exceeded the regenerative and absorptive capacity of the biosphere.

  • Forest ecosystems cover large parts of the terrestrial land surface and are major components of the terrestrial carbon (C) cycle. Most important, forest ecosystems accumulate organic compounds with long C residence times in vegetation, detritus and, in particular, the soil by the process of C sequestration. Trees, the major components of forests, absorb large amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) by photosynthesis, and forests return an almost equal amount to the atmosphere by auto- and heterotrophic respiration.
