CMb ReviewUsing CO2 for Enhanced Coalbed Methane Recovery and Storage

In this report, the authors detail efforts to evaluate the potential of CCS projects, involving CO2 injection and storage into unmineable coal seams and associated ECBM production. They explain how doing so will provide greater insight into the potential for safe and permanent storage of CO2 in coal seams in the US and will refine the national assessment of CO2 storage capacity in coal formations by furthering fundamental research on the interaction of CO2 and coal.

World Handbook of Energy - Coal ChapterCoal Chapter - The World Scientific Handbook of Energy

This coal chapter introduces and describes coal as a widely available and versatile energy source that is available in substantial quantities throughout the world. World coal resources, reserves, and production levels are discussed for coal types. Coal utilization is developed with a detailed focus on the major coal-based electrical power production technologies, which includes pulverized coal, fluidized bed, and gasification technologies. These technologies are presented in tetail, including relevant emission control technologies.

Carbon Capture and Sequestration: The U.S. Department of Energy's R&D Efforts to Characterize Opportunities for Deep Geologic Storage of Carbon Dioxide in Offshore Resources

DOE is the lead federal agency for the research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) of carbon sequestration technologies. There is great potential for geologic storage in state and federal waters in the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and in the Texas and California state territorial waters, as well as research efforts DOE is supporting world-wide.

Geologic Carbon Capture and Storage

An option that has been proposed to combat the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is the capture of carbon dioxide at large stationary sources, such as power plants, and injection into a geologic formation for permanent storage - generally referred to as carbon capture and storage.
