Publications created by the team of the RCGI’s Project 21 deal with the regulations of the energy sector; event will have a roundtable discussion on thermoelectric generation This coming Wednesday, October 24, the RCGILex team will launch two digital publications: the...
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,...
