Negative emissions in North Wales: £200 investment advances CCUS plans in Deeside

Envirotec Magazine

Energy-from-waste operator enfinium has announced (on 11 April) it is progressing plans to invest around £200 million in carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology at the Parc Adfer energy from waste facility in Deeside, North Wales. The project could capture up to 235,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year, said the group. As over half of the waste processed at the facility is organic, installing CCS would enable the plant to take more CO2 out of the atmosphere than it produces.

Nanoscale movies shed light on one barrier to a clean energy future

Science Daily: Renewable Energy

New research is shedding light on one barrier to a clean energy future: corrosion. Using nanoscale imaging techniques, researchers have captured high-resolution videos of tiny crystals of ruthenium dioxide -- a key ingredient used to produce clean-burning hydrogen -- as they are eaten away by their acidic environment. The research could pave the way to more durable catalysts and dramatically extend the lifetime of devices needed to turn hydrogen green.
