Data from a coal with carbon capture and use (CCU) plant and a synthetic direct air carbon capture and use (SDACCU) plant are analyzed for the equipment's ability, alone, to reduce CO2.

Why Not Synthetic Direct Air Carbon Capture and Storage (SDACCS) as Part of a 100% Wind-Water-Solar (WWS) and Storage Solution to Global Warming, Air Pollution, and Energy Security
Synthetic direct air carbon capture and storage (SDACCS) is the direct removal of CO2 from the air by its chemical reaction with other chemicals. Upon removal, the CO2 is sequestered either
Natural Gas Hydrate Resources and Hydrate Technologies: A Review and Analysis of the Associated Energy and Global Warming Challenges
The new scenario involving the rapid energy supply transition from oil-based to natural gas-based undoubtedly affects the future carbon capture and storage (CCS) and offers an opportunity for the
Focus on the role of forests and soils in meeting climate change mitigation goals: summary
It is clear that reducing greenhouse gas emissions alone are insufficient to avoid large global temperature increases. It is also clear that to avoid atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases
Scaling CO2 Capture With Downstream Flow CO2 Conversion to Ethanol
To prevent the global average temperature from increasing more than 1.5°C and lower the concentration of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere, most emissions trajectories necessitate the
Assessing Carbon Capture: Public Policy, Science, and Societal Need
From typhoons to wildfires, as the visible impacts of climate change mount, calls for mitigation through carbon drawdown are escalating. Environmentalists and many climatologists are urging steps to
 Can the 1.5 deg C warming target be met in a global transition to 100% renewable energy? 
Assuming the state-of-the-science estimates for the remaining carbon budget of carbon dioxide emissions, our modeling study supports the conclusion that it is still possible to meet the 1.5 deg C

A bridge to nowhere: methane emissions and the greenhouse gas footprint of natural gas
In April 2011, we published the first peer‐reviewed analysis of the greenhouse gas footprint (GHG) of shale gas, concluding that the climate impact of shale gas may be worse than that of other fossil
Comparative net energy analysis of renewable electricity and carbon capture and storage
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) for fossil-fuel power plants is perceived as a critical technology for climate mitigation. Nevertheless, limited installed capacity to date raises concerns about the
Reduced emissions of CO2, NOx, and SO2 from U.S. power plants owing to switch from coal to natural gas with combined cycle technology
Since 1997, an increasing fraction of electric power has been generated from natural gas in the United States. Here we use data from continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS), which measure
Assessment of methane emissions from the U.S. oil and gas supply chain
TLDR
The magnitude of this leakage was reassessed and it was found that in 2015, supply chain emissions were ∼60% higher than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency inventory estimate, likely because existing inventory methods miss emissions released during abnormal operating conditions.
