Montgomery College Student Wins Spring 2011 Scholarship by Swishing Half-Court Shot During Halftime of the “Battle of 270” Dept. of Energy’s Joseph Giove III to Speak at Germantown Campus, Feb. 22

Ricky Wellington, a freshman majoring in Theatre Arts at Montgomery College, sunk a half-court shot during halftime of Monday’s “Battle of 270” men’s basketball game between Montgomery College-Rockville and Montgomery College-Germantown. The

Giove’s talk, titled “Carbon Capture: One Approach to Address Climate Change,” will feature a solution to climate change that is currently being explored. With carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies, carbon dioxide can be captured from fossil fuel power plants and transported to deep underground reservoirs for long-term geologic storage. Over the past few decades, several large-scale tests have been safely conducted, demonstrating great promise in addressing carbon dioxide emissions. This lecture will explore the process and science of carbon capture and storage as a possible solution for greenhouse gas mitigation.

Like all Spectrum Lectures, this presentation is designed for a non-scientific audience, enabling scientists, students and the community to learn about ground-breaking advancements in science. As the senior program manager for the Department of Energy’s Division of Carbon Capture and Storage Demonstrations within the Office of Fossil Energy, Giove helps manage the FutureGen 2.0, Clean Coal Power Initiative, and Industrial Carbon Capture and Storage Programs.

Giove holds a Bachelor of Science from Lee University and a Master of Science from the University of Maryland University College. He attended Montgomery College from 1991-93, and was the 1992-93 Montgomery College-Rockville Male Athlete of the Year.
