ADPC and Masdar to collect emissions – The National Newspaper

Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) said it would partner with Masdar, the Government’s alternative energy company, to develop ways to collect emissions from its planned Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone.

The pollutants would be pumped into ageing oil wells, both to store them but also to increase well pressure and enhance crude production. As an added bonus, the project could qualify for carbon emissions trading as set out by the Kyoto protocol.

“Our aim is to become the world’s first green industrial zone,” said Ali al Badi, the new chief executive of ADPC.

Carbon capturing is an emerging technology that collects harmful carbon dioxide emissions from the smokestacks of power plants and industrial factories to prevent them from entering the atmosphere.
