Hello everyone! I am Elenica Shiko , a Research Associate in Carbon Capture at the University of Edinburgh. Being a member of the AMPGas project , my research is focused on the characterisation of porous materials with an aim to optimise their capacity and selectivity for CO 2 , for post‑combustion carbon capture. At the Biannual UKCCSRC meeting in Cardiff (10th and 11th of September) I presented a poster showing some results of my work. In particular it was shown that by functionalising hydrophobic groups on the external surface of zeolite particles, water molecules present in the flue gas can be repelled and as such, not decreasing the CO 2 capture efficiency of the materials. Here, I would like to...Read more

Status of North American CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) Projects - Adam Berger , Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) is Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) is US non-profit organization for collaborative research in the electric sector. Its research spans electricity production, transportation, consumption, and environmental impacts. Members number 450, from more than 30 countries. Its charter is to provide benefit to the public, the electricity sector, and its members. While several North American CCS demonstrations have been cancelled, significant projects are ongoing in all areas. Most funding came from government grants...Read more

In the South Building of Cardiff University on 10th September 2014 at 17:00, I attended the informative talk of Sarah Hannis titled “ Near surface gas monitoring at the CO2 Field Lab, Norway ”. Sarah is a member of British Geological Survey (BGS), which is the UK’s leading centre in earth science information and expertise. She received her MSc (First-class honours) degree in Geological Sciences from Imperial College, London. She has the experience of working as Senior Field Engineer for Reservoir Evaluation Wireline, Schlumberger. Her studies are focusing on monitoring geological CO 2 storage, petrophysics, static geological...Read more
Written by Nor Daud from University College London, whose attendance at the UKCCSRC Cardiff Biannual Meeting was supported by the ECR Meeting Fund. Dr Jie Ke - Phase equilibrium studies of impure CO2 systems to underpin developments of CCS technologies Dr Jie Ke , Research Fellow from the University of Nottingham, focuses on studying the impact of impurities in CO 2 streams such as N 2 , H 2 , Ar and H 2 O on thermodynamic properties of the mixtures. The experimental work on binary and ternary mixtures is performed using a variety of high-pressure facilities that are developed at the University of Nottingham. The experimental data is validated using several types of equations of state (EoS) (Peng-Robinson with...Read more
