Written by Abigail Diaz from the University of Edinburgh, whose attendance at the UKCCSRC Cardiff Biannual Meeting was supported by the ECR Meeting Fund. Enzo Magnano from The University of Edinburgh gave a presentation about Adsorption Materials and Processes for Carbon Capture from Gas-Fired Power Plants – AMPGas , a project funded by UKCCSRC, EPSRC, and RCUK. He gave an overview about the progress of this project and his experimental results. He showed a ranking of CO 2 capacity for selected carbon materials. A novel bench scale rotary wheel adsorben has been designed and built at the UoE. The main purpose of this equipment is to determine the equilibrium and kinetic properties of novel adsorbents tailored for CO 2 capture...Read more
Written by Dr Roger Watson from University of Edinburgh whose attendance at the UKCCSRC Cardiff Biannual Meeting was supported by the ECR Meeting Fund One of the advantages of travelling back to Scotland from a UKCCSRC biannual meeting by train is that it’s usually very quiet in the borders area – ideal conditions for blogging… After attending the wrong parallel session on Wednesday – apologies to the CO 2 impurities presenters - I agreed with Ciara that I’d blog on the Gas CCS session which took place on the Thursday. This turned out to be an easy task as it was one of the best sessions I’ve attended at a UKCCSRC biannual meeting so far, with a broad range of...Read more
Written by Richard Marsh , Cardiff University, Principal Investigator on UKCCSRC Call 1 Project Oxyfuel and exhaust gas recirculation processes in gas turbine combustion for improved carbon capture which completed in July 2014 What progress has taken place since the last blog ? We have been busy making some really exciting measurements. Our first job was to install an oxygen supply line into Cardiff University’s GTRC facility at Port Talbot. Oxygen is quite a hazardous substance since it reacts with almost any material, including metals, so we have undertaken a strict safety review and ensured that our oxygen supply complies with a number of safety regulations relating to this type of work. The new oxygen system is fully remote controlled,...Read more
This blog was written by Usman Ali , Energy Technology and Innovation Initiative (ETII), Faculty of Engineering, University of Leeds, UK The Gas CCS Meeting was held on 25 June, 2014 at Bramber House, University of Sussex, Brighton, and the agenda of the meeting was to present and get insight in the field of carbon capture and storage for the natural gas fired power systems. The meeting gives the overview of, what is happening at the United Kingdom, Mexico and China level in the field of the Gas CCS along with updates from the Gas CCS research projects. Tom Snow from SSE briefed participants on the proposed post-combustion power plant for the Peterhead power station . The project is to...Read more
