CO2 Club România
The Romanian CO2 Club is open to all persons and organizations both Romanian or foreign interested in the field of CO2 capture and geological storage.
Under the Paris agreement, the EU has committed to carbon neutrality by the second half of the 21st century. What does it mean in practice? Forests help to absorb carbon from the atlmosphere. Photo by Sebastian Pichler on Unsplash Climate change is already affecting...
A shift to a less-polluting economy requires significant investment. The EU wants to attract more private money as public funds are insufficient. The EU is keen to push environmentally-friendly projects ©Mikel Martinez De Osaba/123RF/European Union – EP EU investments...
Ever wondered how much CO2 is emitted by cars or whether electric vehicles really are a cleaner alternative? Check out our infographics to find out. Transport is responsible for nearly 30% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions, of which 72% comes from road transportation....
Did you know?
In 2012 the CO2 concentration in earth's atmosphere reached 393 ppm
The Global CCS Institute projects database currently contains 499 CCS Activities worldwide that include 213 active or planned projects (101 at commercial scale) ,the rest being research activities.
The biggest European stationary CO2 emmiter is Electrownia Belchatow power plant in Poland (31 milion tonnes in 2008)?
On the second place is the Drax power plant in North Yorkshire.
Starting from 2008, China became the first mondial emmiter of CO2 with around 6 200 milion tons per year.
In the second place is USA and on the third place is EU with 5 100 milion tones?
The CO2 cocentration in atmosphere increases with 2-3 ppm every year?
The CO2 concentration in the Earth atmpsphere has reached 390 ppm in 2009?
Before the Industrial revolution that concentration was only 270 ppm?
In May 2009 the European Commission and Parlament have approved a 1.05 bilion euros allocation to sustain building of 7 power plants with CCS?
In the temperature and pressure conditions at 800 – 1000 m depth, the CO2 has a volume 100 times smaler that at the earth surface?
The Carbon dioxiede may be geologically stored in deep saline formations, depleted or depeting hydrocarbon fields or unminable coal deposits?
At Slipner (Norway), starting from 1996, around 1 milion tones of CO2 is pumped underground (in Utsira permeable formation)
The US and China emit 41% of the world's greenhouse gases.
The most important so-called ”long-lived” greenhouse gases are CO2, methane, nitrous oxide and CFC's. In total they account for more than 97 percent of the direct effect of the long-lived gases on how much heat is retained in the atmosphere.
Analyses of air contained in ice from the Antarctic ice cap show that there is far more CO2 in the air today than at any time in the last 650,000 years.
The most recent assessment report from the Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says that the earth’s average temperature has risen by 0.74 degrees in the period from 1906 to 2005, and that the average temperature will continue to rise.
In the global classification, Romania is on the 40th place as CO2 emitter with an allocation of around 85 milion tonnes?
In 29.11.2012 the CO2 emission allowance price has reached 6,65 euro/tonne
