“How do FosCCS and AirCCS interact?” with Robert Socolow
Robert Socolow, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, emeritus, will present, “How do FosCCS and AirCCS interact? (FOSsil Fuel Carbon and AIR Carbon Capture and Storage, That Is)” at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, in Guyot Hall, Room 10. Socolow will discuss how, until about 2010, the “carbon” in carbon capture and storage (CCS) referred to trapping carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels at the source, particularly coal-fired power plants. More recently, however, CSS has come to also include the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Socolow will explore these two distinctive climate change-mitigation activities and how they interact.
This talk is free and open to the public.
