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… read more
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… read more
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… read more
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… read more
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 Launch 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…. read more
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.
