Divided according to three major sources for obtaining natural gas – urban waste, waste created by livestock, and the sugar and alcohol sector – the set of maps is a valuable tool for local energy planning The FAPESP Shell Research...
Project will assess the storage potential of shale, sandstone, basalt, and argillite in the Paraná Basin for CO2 captured at the Jorge Lacerda complex The FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) is beginning a study of rocks in...
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...
Group of researchers also optimizing the production of biodegradable plastic from methanol, via bacteria A cross-disciplinary team from the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) is studying microalgae that have the potential of production bioproducts from carbon dioxide...
Their goal is to deliver an open and flexible numerical simulation software for solutions to inverse problems The subject of inverse problem solving is increasingly recurrent in academia. These are situations when scientists have measurements of something, but do not...
Work recently came out in a publication with CAPES classification of A1; results suggest that production from vinasse could supply 16.6% of the consumption of natural gas in the State of São Paulo Researchers from the FAPESP Shell Research Centre...
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...
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...
