Clean Coal

On May 5, 2011, in

The term clean coal refers to a number of initiatives that seek to reduce or eliminate the hazardous emission or byproducts that result from using coal to generate electrical power. Burning raw, pulverized coal emits sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrous oxides (NOx), mercury, and fine particulate matter. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is always a byproduct of combustion. […]

Geomechanics Laboratory

On April 7, 2011, in

Making predictions of rock mass response and fluid flow through rock masses requires quantitative models of the governing deformation and fracture processes. Building these models, and performing analytic and numerical design calculations from the models requires information about specific rock properties. The Geomechanics Laboratory enables you to measure rock properties under a wide range of […]

Carbon Management

On January 27, 2011, in

A growing consensus exists among climate scientists, economists, and policy makers that the link between man-made emissions of greenhouse gasses (GHGs) and climate instability is sufficiently likely to motivate global actions. Energy use and energy generation are at the heart of the problem, with the International Energy Agency (IEA) forecasting that global electricity generation will […]
