This invention provides a chemical synthesis route that creates iron oxide-based nanoparticles as a byproduct of a carbon dioxide storage process. Technology Applications: •Produce high purity hydrogen gas from steam and sequestration-ready carbon dioxide from syngas. •Recover iron from magnesium-bearing minerals. •Synthesize iron oxide particles during carbon mineral sequestration. •Capture carbon dioxide using mineral sequestration with magnesium-bearing minerals. Patent information: Patent Pending (US 20120225007)
Carbon capture technologies are only as good as their ability to prevent leaking of carbon dioxide back into the environment. Utilities that invest in advanced coal plants with carbon capture technologies need to prove that the carbon stays where it is stored. The mixing of carbon dioxide from biofuel production also requires monitoring.
