CO2 scrubber by untapped oceanic energy


Subsurface carbon recycling

Let's resolve the energy-climate dilemma with the silver bullet - CCS
Why bury the CO2 underground?
A simple answer is that there are no other spaces. The global warming rejects the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere.The ocean acidification prevents it from the sea. Only available spaces remains underground. Can you abandone the fossil energy despite the oil crunch? Let's use the earth's carbon cycle.

Leak-free ADVANCED CO2 GEOSEQUESTRATION
From the CO2 saline aquifer storage (CCS:1990,1992)
to the carbon mirobubbles sequestration
(CMS = plume-free CCS:2007,2008)

Google
The leading-edge plume-free underground injection technology of CO2 microbubbles (CMS: carbon microbubbles sequestration) for the leak-free CCS can make the zero-emission clean coal a reality in many parts of the world.
The underground injection of carbon microbubbles leaves no hazardous large chunks of supercritical CO2 behind under your backyard.

A novel leak-free CCS technology - <carbon microbubbles sequesrtration(CMS)>- can bring the economic deep reduction of greenhouse gas emission into reality all over the world.

2010/11/18 A breakthrough CO2-microbubbles-hydration technology reduces the cost for CO2 capture in half. The Tokyo-based JFE Engineering Corporation succeeded to separate CO2 from the flue gas with the small energy penalty by forming CO2 hydrate in the CO2-microbubbles-dispersed water at the almost ordnary pressure (0.11MPa) and temperature (18 degreees C) with the addition of small amount of "Neowhite". The "Neowhite"(Tetra-n-butylammonium bromide:TBAB) is the clathrate hydrate heat storage material developed by JFE and Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization. http://www.jfe-eng.co.jp/release/news10/news_e10015.html

0) Greenhouse gas( CO2 .etc) microbubbles sequestration

Underground injection of carbon dioxide microbubbles
secures quick and stable emplacement of the greenhouse gas in numerous tiny pores of deep rocks and accelerates its dissolution into groundwater.

Never waste energy in sending several million tons of carbon dioxide through several hundreds kilometers of pipelines nor in shipping several million tons of liquified carbon dioxide several thousands kilometers away.
You can save energy and cost significantly by carbon dioxide microbubbles sequestration in nearby underground rocks.

A novel leak-free CCS technology - carbon microbubbles sequesrtration(CMS)- can bring the economic deep reduction of greenhouse gas emission into reality all over the world.
