The Lenfest Center for Sustainable Energy (LCSE) is pleased to welcome back Doctoral Student Yinghuang Ji, who recently returned from Iceland at the Carbfix geological carbon storage site. Ji’s project, “Tagging Carbon Dioxide to Enable Quantitative Inventories of Geological Carbon Storage” (PI. Klaus Lackner) otherwise known as the C14 project, funded by the US Department […]
The Lenfest Center for Sustainable Energy’s PhD alumnus Eric Dahlgren wrote a paper “Small Modular Infrastructure” with LCSE Director Klaus Lackner, along with Garrett van Ryzin and Caner Göçmen from the Graduate School of Business, Columbia University. It was recently selected for the Eugene L. Grant award for best paper in the Engineering Economist for […]
The paper “Small Modular Infrastructure” written by LCSE’s PhD Student Eric Dahlgren and Director Klaus Lackner, along with Garrett van Ryzin and Caner Göçmen from the Graduate School of Business, Columbia University, and published in the Engineering Economist in November 2013 was recently selected for the Eugene L. Grant award. The Grant award is given […]
Klaus Lackner’s article “Capturing Carbon Dioxide From Air,” has recently been selected to be in a book titled Carbon Capture and Storage: CO2 Management Technologies, edited by Amitava Bandyopadhyay, Ph.D., and to be published by Apple Academic Press and distributed by CRC Books, a division of Taylor and Francis. This article is from the first […]
A new article in Elementa by Newberry Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory Scientist Wallace Broecker highlights Lackner’s Air Capture research and the need to narrow its wide range of cost estimates. The full article can be found here.
A new article in Scientific American about Professor Lackner’s carbon capture tree has recently been written by David Biello. In the article, Biello sees up-close how the artificial tree works. The full article can be found here.
A new article about Professor Lackner’s carbon capture research has just been published by Richard Schiffman in the Yale Forum on Climate Change & the Media. The full article can be found here.
Lenfest Center Helps Launches new Research Coordination Network focused on Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage
On Thursday, February 14th, Professor Alissa Park kicked off the new National Science Foundation – Research Coordination Network (RCN) themed around Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS). This 4 year award is designed to seed transformative research collaborations in CCUS that cross the boundaries of the natural sciences, engineering, and the social and economic sciences. […]
In the video posted earlier, Prof. Lackner mentioned that captured carbon dioxide might be perfect for greenhouses. Don’t believe him? Take a look at the graph below showing how the material he has developed, once loaded with carbon dioxide, is able to release that carbon dioxide once it is exposed to a moist environment. (Click […]
Last week’s cold spell may not have been good weather for picnics, but it was perfect weather for capturing carbon dioxide! Professor Klaus Lackner and Allen Wright took advantage of the ideal conditions by making a short video which demonstrates the carbon capture technology they’ve developed: a material that pulls carbon dioxide right out of […]
Journalist Richard Schiffman has just published two articles about Professor Klaus Lackner’s carbon capture research, and both pieces are expected to appear in more venues during the coming weeks. The full articles can currently be found at the following news outlets: The National Post: The Benefits of Carbon Capture and Storage The Earth Island Journal: […]
We’re pleased to announce the launch of our new website! Please feel free to click around and explore our newly renovated home.
A recent New York Times article on air capture technology featured a quote from LCSE’s Professor Klaus Lackner. The full article can be found here.
Associate Research Scientist Christoph Meinrenken’s recent carbon footprinting research has been selected by Bloomberg’s Andrew Winston as one of the Top 10 Sustainable Business Stories of 2012. Read more about it here!
Professor Klaus Lackner spoke at WCXR’s The Green Space about CO2 emissions and ignorance in the scientific field. He was joined by Professor Firestein, the chairman of biology at Columbia University and the author of Ignorance: How It Drives Science, and a group of Columbia scientists from many fields to discuss their research. Watch a […]
“Scrubbing the Skies” discusses carbon capture research, like Professor Lackner’s artificial tree. Read more here.
