UVA Professor Proposes Resourceful Approach to Reducing Emissions

July 2014
State Journal (WV);7/18/2014, Vol. 30 Issue 28, p14
The article discusses the proposal by University of Virginia (UVA) assistant professor Andres Clarens as of July 2014 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel-fired power plants. The method uses carbon dioxide capture and sequestration (CCS) technology to transport back carbon dioxide to depleted shale gas wells that were hydraulically fractured. The approach was featured in the August 2013 issue of the journal "American Chemical Society's Environmental Science and Technology."
