This Green Earth - December 6, 2016
Dr. Brian McPherson is a professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Utah. He was recently awarded a 1.3 million dollar grant from the Department of Energy to study whether or not the process of carbon capture and storage of CCS could be applied here in Utah. What is carbon capture and storage? What are its benefits and challenges of first introducing and then storing carbon dioxide into the ground? And once there, will it remain in perpetuity? Professor McPherson joins Nell and Chris to explain this technology, his upcoming study and answer their questions.
