One of the objectives is to develop catalysts for reactions that use CO2 as the raw material; the RCGI helped with the cost of the new facilities On July 12, in the city of São Paulo, the Laboratory for Research...
“We must recognize that there is a challenge regarding the perception of CCS, and that in order to deal with it we must have leadership and engagement, as well as investment and education,” states Australian expert regarding this activity in...
Professor from the University of Tokyo presented a CCS project in a saline aquifer in Japan; in his opinion, Brazil cam become a leader in the storage of CO2 in salt caverns On Wednesday, October 17, the FAPESP Shell Research...
Group led by a Poli/USP Professor wants to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and transform it into organic products by using nanoparticle oxides Reproduce the natural photosynthesis process whereby organic molecules are synthetized by absorption of light, CO2, and...
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...
“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...
Group investigates the viability of injecting CO2 into shale gas reservoirs in the Paraná Sedimentary Basin and in offshore turbidites of the Santos Basin A group of researchers from the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) is studying...
Geologist Cristina Rodrigues, Professor at Portugal’s Fernando Pessoa University, came to Brazil to lecture at the Energy and Environment Institute (IEE/USP), at the invitation of the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI). She holds a degree from the University...
