Clean Fossil Energy Highlights
Over the last few decades, carbon capture and storage approaches have been developed to capture carbon dioxide and inject it into underground reservoirs. FutureGen 2.0 was a project that aimed to develop these approaches at the industrial scale. Although support for this project ended in 2015, FutureGen 2.0 provided valuable information and tangible results.
Researchers at PNNL have found a better way to test carbon-capturing solvents. They created and validated a computational model that predicts how easily a solvent will flow and how much carbon it will capture. The model offers definitive, accurate predictions about different carbon-capture solvents and it can—in a few hours or days—show the potential capture properties of a solvent.
