Re: E-M:/ Pumping Carbon Dioxide under Gaylord

Enviro-Mich message from Rane L Curl <ranecurl@umich.edu>

The process removes carbon dioxide from the raw natural gas coming out of the ground (CO2 concentration in that varies - generally 0 to 8% or so), reducing it to less than 2% in the gas provided to consumers. This has always been done, but formerly that CO2 was released to the atmosphere. However pumping it back underground still does nothing to reduce the CO2 released to the atmosphere by the ultimate burning of the combustibles in the natural gas. The latter far exceeds the CO2 removed in processing the gas.

It would be interesting to hear from some of the Enviromich pundits on this:
