Technology for Carbon Dioxide Capture from Fossil Fuel Burning Industrial Plants
May 17 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Join Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s (PNNL) next Community Science and Technology Seminar presented by Dr. Phillip Koech.
Global energy use is moving to renewable sources, however, this cannot provide enough power to achieve a carbon-free economy. Fossil fuel will continue to be a source of energy for the foreseeable future. Fossil fuels release gigatons of CO2 to the environment per year contributing to climate change. Human-induced climate change is evident from large wildfires, raising sea levels, and strong hurricanes. To mitigate these environmental effects, removal of CO2 from industrial emissions is required. Carbon capture is a process that removes CO2 released after burning fuel. We have developed a technology for CO2 capture using advanced liquids. Come learn how PNNL scientists are advancing CO2 capture towards commercial application.
