Researchers reveal gap in carbon capture and sequestration education
Date:3/11/2014

Sustainable energy generation is one of the biggest challenges of our generation. All long-term solutions rely on direct or indirect conversion of solar energy. However, these solutions appear to be years from implementation. Whether we like or not, we simply won't be able to transition overnight to a world that is carbon neutral for its energy. Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) has been an exciting topic both for researchers and also the policy makers on what to do with the large quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2) released when fossil fuel use in power generation.

A volume published in March 2014 in print, ePub and also on the iBook (via iTunes) by Imperial College Press approaches the subject matter of CCS through a different way of educating students and researchers on the topic.

The title, Introduction to Carbon Capture and Sequestration, was written by Berend Smit and Jeffry A. Reimer (University of California, Berkeley, USA) along with Curtis M. Oldenburg and Ian C. Bourg (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA). This is the first volume in The Berkeley Lectures on Energy series. The book features introductory to advanced developments pertaining to CCS in the fields of chemical engineering, material science, and geology. The text covers topics as diverse as how to estimate the number of gigatonnes of CO2 that can be stored in a geological formation; how to use a molecular model of pore architecture to optimize the performance of a membrane; what insights can be gained the faint young star paradox; and how to consider the importance of heat integration in amine scrubbing.

Questions about cost, safety and is CO2 the cause of global warming, are often asked of researchers and students in CCS but the authors felt the current education and research material does not cover these equally important questions and issues.
