 CO2OIL.com Enhanced oil and gas production using CO2
CO2 floods of oil reservoirs are performed after natural depletion (primary recovery) and normally after the reservoir has been flooded with injected water (secondary recovery).
CO2 EOR involves the piping of pure CO2 from some high pressure trunk line to the field, injection wells (either additional or converted water wells), modification to producing wells to deal with the corrosive nature of wet CO2 and recycling facilities to separate the produced CO2 from other gases.
Natural CO2 fields only occur in specific areas and most industrial sources of CO2 are low purity (15%) and cannot be used in CO2 EOR without expensive "carbon capture".

 Carbon Dioxide Enrichment Methods
All of these CO2 generators produce heat as a by-product of CO2 generation, which is rarely needed in a controlled environment grow room but may prove beneficial in winter growing and cool area greenhouses.
Since CO2 is heavier than air, one good method of distributing it to the plants is to attach the container or dry ice to the light reflectors which are normally placed over the plants.
With CO2 enrichment, a higher temperature, up to 100 degrees F, can be used, more light may be needed as it is required for the photosynthetic reaction to take place.

 Carbonating at Home with Improvised Equipment and Soda Fountains
Since my carbonator super-saturates the water with CO2 (the water is both chilled and pressurized while the gas is dissolved), and the gas in the head space of the bottle at the end of the process is vented, the yield must be somewhat less.
CO2 regulators are available for about $50 from soft-drink distributors, welding gas suppliers, or homebrew hobby suppliers (see, for example, the page at http://www.kegworks.com).
The degree of carbonation as a proportion of CO2 to water is measured in standard "volumes of CO2" for a given volume of water, where the "volume" of CO2 is understood to be that of the gas at 32 deg F and atmospheric pressure, where CO2 gas has a density of about 2.0 grams/liter.

CO2 is present in relatively low quantities, 300-450 Part Per Million or "ppm" in normal everyday air.
The C.A.P. CO2 generators are constructed of powder coated steel enclosures that resist moisture, rust and discoloration.
It also features temperature and humidity controls which will disable CO2 injection if the temperature or humidity levels that you specify are exceeded, activating an exhaust outlet which can control ventilation equipment (air conditioner, fan, etc.) It also has a built in photo controller, which disables the CO2 function when the lights are off.

 CO2
In early 1770 Torbern Bergman discovered that an equal volume of CO2 gas was almost entirely soluble in water at a temperature of 10°C and observed that the solubility of this gas decreases as the temperature rises.
Later on CO2 was recovered from combustion of cokes and still later on from combustion of heavy fuel oil.
Using CO2 to neutralize the pH level in water is therefore an ecologically sound process, as a CO2 injection does not bring about excessive acidification of the water nor does it introduce any pollutants to it.

 DIY CO2
In low light tanks CO2 is not necessary, the speed at which the plants grow is slow enough that most nutrients including CO2 are being introduced into the water faster than the plants are consuming them.
CO2 in gas form is more efficient than liquid carbon so the first two options are the most common.
CO2 levels effect PH in a way that as more CO2 is added to the water the PH will drop.

 Carbon Dioxide (CO2) for Euthanizing Mammalian Prey
It must be noted that use of CO2 gas is not suitable for euthanizing reptiles.
You should pre-charge the container with the vaporizing dry ice prior to introducing the animals to be euthanized, to make it maximum quick, and to use enough gas -- as only high concentrations have the more humane effects.
The CO2 method is humane -- the CO2 method has a "rapid depressant and anesthetic effect" when inhaled in high concentrations.

The latter is determined as a moving average of ten adjacent seasonal cycles centered on the month to be corrected, except for the first and last five years of the record, where the seasonal cycle has been averaged over the first and last ten years, respectively.
The Mauna Loa data are being obtained at an altitude of 3400 m in the northern subtropics, and may not be the same as the globally averaged CO2 concentration at the surface.
If we estimate during a given month ("m") the global average CO2 during the previous month ("m-1"), the result differs from the estimate made (up to almost a year later) when all the data are in, with a standard deviation of 0.57 ppm.

 Co2 Discussion for Planted Aquariums
At the end of most of the tests, CO2 again measured about 2-3 ppm, indicating that this was the equilibrium value for the experimental conditions (note that the altitude was 5000 feet above sea level).
Just CO2 data in the range of 10-33 ppm is shown, since we consider that range to be the most relevant for planted tanks.
This is a CO2 concentration swing of 5 mg/l (27 mg/l to 22 mg/l) times 300 liters and should occur within 1.25 hours for a usage of 29 grams per day.

 Carbon Dioxide - Geologic Sequestration | Climate Change - Greenhouse Gas Emissions | U.S. EPA
Instead of releasing CO2 to the atmosphere, geologic sequestration involves separating and capturing CO2 from an industrial or energy-related source, transporting it to a storage location, and injecting it deep underground for long-term isolation from the atmosphere.
CO2 can be transported as a liquid in ships, road or rail tankers, but pipelines are the most efficient and cost-effective approach for transporting large volumes of CO2.
Rather than venting the CO2, a common practice on projects of this type, this project is compressing and injecting it 5900 feet deep into a lower level of the gas reservoir where the reservoir is filled with water.

 Carbon Dioxide - Human-Related Sources and Sinks of Carbon Dioxide | Climate Change - Greenhouse Gas Emissions | U.S. ...
The largest source of CO2 emissions globally is the combustion of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas in power plants, automobiles, industrial facilities and other sources.
CO2 is emitted by the burning of fossil fuels for electricity generation, industrial uses, transportation, as well as in homes and commercial buildings.
leads to CO2 emissions because the carbon sequestered in trees is emitted to the atmosphere and not counter-balanced by re-growth of new trees.

 Measuring CO2 levels in a Planted Tank
NOTE: If you aren't adding CO2 to your water, and the CO2 level based on the pH and KH indicates more than 5ppm, then it is very likely that some other buffer (such as phosphate) is present in your water.
A desireable CO2 level is 10-25ppm (which is indicated in green on the chart).
CO2 concentrations over 25ppm can be harmful to the inhabitants of your tank.

 WebHome < CO2 < TWiki
The novel approach is to sequester CO2 not only by physical trapping within a reservoir, but to convert dissolved CO2 into the geochemically more stable form of calcite in a reaction with calcium obtained from dissolution of sulphates and feldspars.
For modelling and thus testing the potential of a CO2 sequestration by transforming anhydrite into calcite, the dynamics of anhydrite redistribution within the reservoir as well as the trans-formation mechanisms and rates need to be known.
Ultimately, it is one of the prime goals of this project to develop a scientifically and technically feasible new technology in which CO2 sequestration and geothermal energy use are combined to achieve a safe and economically attractive long-term storage of CO2 trapped in minerals.

 co2 - Mike Koss on Blue Dot
If we basically do nothing, and global CO2 emissions continue to grow at the pace of the last 30 years for the next 50 years, we will pass the doubling level — an atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide of 560 parts per million — around midcentury.
Levels seem to be growing at about 2 ppmv (parts per million by volume) each year as a trend (though we have seasonal fluctuations of 6 ppmv due to plant growth).
Since the atmosphere's CO2 composition is now at 383 ppmv, about 1/4 of it can be attributed to man-made sources.
