Greenhouse Gases: Science and Technology is a new online scientific journal dedicated to the management of greenhouse gases. The journal will focus on methods for carbon capture and storage (CCS), as well as utilization of carbon dioxide (CO2) as a feedstock for fuels and chemicals. GHG will also provide insight into strategies to mitigate emissions of other greenhouses gases. Significant advances will be explored in critical reviews, commentary articles and short communications of broad interest. In addition, the journal will offer analyses of relevant economic and political issues, industry developments and case studies.

Key themes:

►Carbon dioxide capture

  • Pre-combustion capture
  • Post-combustion capture
  • Oxyfuel
  • Industrial processes
  • Solvents, sorbents and membranes
  • Chemical-looping combustion
  • Cryogenic separation
  • Direct air capture
  • Integration with other processes in the power plant

►Carbon dioxide storage

  • Wellbore integrity
  • Leakage pathways, e.g. faults and fractures
  • Capacity assessment, e.g.saline formations, depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs
  • Caprock seals
  • Impact of CO2 storage (groundwater, microseismicity)
  • Onshore and offshore geologic storage
  • Technical performance and risk assessment
  • Longterm fate of injected CO2
  • Trapping mechanisms, including adsorption, e.g. coal beds and shales
  • Monitoring, verification and accounting (MVA, e.g. seismic, surface, hydrologic, remote sensing)
