Scientists study the use of hybrid catalysts to accelerate the hydrogenation of CO2; they also investigate how CO2, in a supercritical state, reacts with hydrogen in the presence of different catalysts Obtain value-added products from CO2 by using catalyzers that...
They saw the laboratories used by the researchers, attended lectures, and made recommendations regarding how to involve smaller institutions in the Centre’s research efforts Last Friday, October 5, representatives of the National Petroleum, Natural Gas, and Biofuels Agency (ANP) and...
“Selling” CO2 removed from the atmosphere in the form of other fuels or of chemical products for industry could change our view regarding carbon and help reduce emissions One of the current technology trends for carbon abatement is to convert...
Reservoirs opened in the saline pre-salt layers could be used to store hydrocarbons, CO2, waste from drilling oil wells, and other substances; the project has already gained a patent A group of researchers linked to the FAPESP Shell Research Centre...
In Brazil, increasing the production of natural gas and limiting future bioenergy production by half could preserve as much as 12.6 MHa of forests Although it has been demonstrated the advantages of bioenergy over fossil fuels for GHG emissions reduction,...
Third edition of Sustainable Gas Research Innovation confirms that CCS, CCUS, BECCS, and other carbon sequestration, storage, or usage technologies are a worldwide trend Pre-salt figures since the passage of law no. 3.365/2016, which opened these reserves to other operators,...
The Environment, Society, and Technology in Capturing and Storing Carbon in Brazil was the theme of a minicourse organized and taught during the event by seven RCGI scientists Researchers from the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) taught...
Brazil has technologies for obtaining and commercializing these energy sources, but there still are few initiatives. Book hopes to change this scenario. With the support of the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI), Professor Suani Coelho, of USP’s...
Series covers a variety of subjects regarding natural gas, such as distribution, regulations, innovative applications, substituting diesel by VNG or biomethane Six books of the RCGI/USP/Synergia collection will be released during the III Sustainable Gas Research Innovation (SGRI) international conference...
With an annual budget of US$ 7 billion, NSF only funds research in the U.S., but could support international partners who collaborate with American projects Last Monday, September 10, the Director of the Engineering Program of the National Science Foundation...
