Scientist Discusses “Put It Back” Process of Carbon Capture

Event: Dr. Tip Meckel will discuss one of the promising but little known options to reduce atmospheric emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2). Oxidation of carbon stored in fossil fuels — coal, oil, gas — has transferred more than 250 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere since 1800. One method of reducing…   » Continue Reading

University Receives $19 Million to Monitor Carbon Storage Project

The University of Texas at Austin will receive up to $19 million to design and monitor a carbon capture and storage demonstration project that will take CO2 from a coal-fired power plant and inject it deep underground. It will be among only a handful of other carbon capture and storage tests around the world using human-made CO2.

University Receives $6 Million to Assess Carbon Storage Sites in Gulf of Mexico

The University of Texas at Austin will use $6 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Texas General Land Office to identify state-owned areas underlying the Gulf of Mexico where carbon dioxide (CO2) can be stored safely and economically.

The University of Texas at Austin Receives $1 Million Grant to Build Carbon Capture and Storage Workforce

The University of Texas at Austin will use a $994,702 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to help create a skilled workforce for the emerging carbon capture and storage industry and to build public awareness of the technology's benefits to society.
