CCUS gains momentum despite midstream challenges

Payne Institute Communications Associate Brooke Bowser, Program Manager Laura Singer, and Director Morgan Bazilian write about how carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technology has again become popular in discussions on how to combat climate change, but the associated midstream infrastructure necessary to support an energy transition remains underdeveloped and often overlooked.  October 6, 2021.

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage: What it is and Why it’s Part of a Comprehensive Climate Solution 9/13/2021

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage: What it is and Why it’s Part of a Comprehensive Climate Solution

Payne Institute Senior Research Associate and Research Assistant Professor Greer Gosnell and Program Manager Laura Singer write about how emphasis on carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) remains alive and well, thanks to rare bipartisan support for the technology that hopes to save millions of jobs in the industrial sector—which is responsible for 25% of U.S. emissions—and hard-to-abate sectors such as aviation and shipping.  September 13, 2021. 

Mines researchers dig into carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies 9/1/2021

Mines researchers dig into carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies

Payne Institute Program Manager Laura Singer is featured in this article about the new Mines CCUS program.  As more businesses commit to net zero emissions by 2050 and new legislation paves the way for investments in carbon capture, utilization and storage, Colorado School of Mines researchers are digging deeper into CCUS technologies that will meet real-world needs. And with the launch of a new three-course graduate certificate program in CCUS at Mines, working engineers will be well prepared to take on the challenge.  September 1, 2021.

CHANGING THE ECONOMICS OF MINING 6/29/2021

FINDING PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS TO THE CARBON PROBLEM

Dr. Manika Prasad, Professor, Geophysics, and Director of the Mines CCUS Innovation Center, and Co-Director for Rock & Fluid Multiphysics at Colorado School of Mines, on The Conveyor podcast discussing Carbon is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gases, and many researchers are trying to mitigate those effects. Many of those efforts involve carbon sequestration and reuse. June 29, 2021.  

Colorado School of Mines to launch first-of-its-kind online certificate in carbon capture, utilization and storage 6/21/2021

Colorado School of Mines to launch first-of-its-kind online certificate in carbon capture, utilization and storage

Colorado School of Mines announces a comprehensive CCUS joint curriculum across eight Mines academic programs.  A new online graduate certificate at Colorado School of Mines will prepare working professionals to make an impact in the growing field of carbon dioxide mitigation, one of the key strategies for achieving the ambitious goals for reducing CO2 levels in the atmosphere and reducing the global warming effects of greenhouse gases.  June 21, 2021.

The quest to put carbon to rest at sea

Payne Institute Program Manager Laura Singer contributed to this article about how the Earth’s ocean acts as a global climate regulator, and scientists are increasingly studying its chemistry and geology to find potential ways to store carbon dioxide captured from emissions or removed from the air.  Oceans are bearing some of the brunt of the climate change.  April 22, 2021.

Shaping a Global Energy Future 3/24/2021

Shaping a global energy future

Dr. John Bradford, Vice Provost of Global Initiatives at Colorado School of Mines, on the podcast The Conveyor, discusses the new Global Energy Future Initiative, with much of the world looking at eliminating carbon emissions from the global energy economy, and the many changes and growth that will be required across many technologies, industries and more to ensure a thoughtful and efficient shift toward cleaner energy sources.  March 24, 2021.
