Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), we are told, could be demonstrated today, and could be rolled out on a massive scale tomorrow, saving millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide at each facility. However, the risks for investors will remain high unless a few dramatic technology improvements surface soon. We assess aspects of CCS which are likely to prove interesting to investors and identify five sources of potentially disruptive innovations.

CCS Investment

First published in Cleantech magazine, May/June 2009. Copyright Cleantech Investor Ltd. 2009

What will make CCS economically feasible? Is there a business case for investing in either large scale CCS or in related technology development areas? The arguments are complex and clearly strong political backing will be crucial. We canvass a selection of opinions from informed commentators on the requirements for CCS/CCS related investment, from a variety of perspectives.

Wave energy to power carbon sequestration process?

First published in Infocus: Wave Energy, July 2008. Copyright Cleantech Investor Ltd. 2008.

US company, Atmocean Inc., envisages the use of wave energy for alternative applications including carbon sequestration and hurricane abatement


Atmocean’s ‘ocean upwelling pump’ technology captures wave kinetic energy for the purposes of extracting water from depths of more than 300 metres, to the ocean surface. The implications are potentially revolutionary. Deep ocean water is both cooler and higher in nutrients than surface level water – which opens up scope for applications ranging from carbon sequestration to hurricane abatement.
