Where greenhouse gases are welcome


Got some CO2 you’re looking to get rid of? The Scottish Centre for Carbon Storage can help… sort of.
The research center, a partnership between the University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University and the British Geological Survey, has set up an interactive Google Earth map showing carbon capture and storage sites (or planned sites) around the globe.
Right now the database is a bit short on U.S. projects, however. It notes the cancelled FutureGen project in Illinois and plans for a large carbon capture project at the W.A. Parish plant run by NRG Energy just south of Houston. But nothing about such projects as what Denbury Resources is doing in Mississippi or the many tests the University of Texas’ Bureau of Economic Geology has done near Mont Belvieu.
Maybe someone could pair this map with one done by Carbon Monitoring in Action so you could pair the biggest CO2 producing power plants with possible storage sites?
