Written by Diarmaid Clery (University of Leeds) and Ruta Karolyte (University of Edinburgh) who attended the ECR Winter School 2016 in Sheffield, 15-18 February 2016 with funding from the UKCCSRC ECR Meeting Fund Prof Colin Snape opened the Winter School greeting the students and we started exploring the current technical,...
The Process-performance indexed design of task-specific ionic liquids for post-combustion CO2 capture’ project is funded through the UKCCSRC’s Call 2 for funding. It brought together two young academics from Imperial College of London: Dr Jason Hallett , from the Chemical Engineering Department, whose research focuses in solvent design for sustainable...

We have been busy making some really...
I am Elsa Lasseuguette , a postdoctoral researcher in the Carbon Capture group at the University of Edinburgh. I am currently working on membrane technologies for CO2 capture (for post-combustion and pre-combustion) under the supervision of Dr Maria-Chiara Ferrari . I am working on several projects related to the improvement...

Large reserves of shale gas and unconventional gases worldwide will ensure that hydrogen remains produced mainly via the catalytic steam reforming process (C-SR) for the next few decades. In conventional C-SR, the most energy intensive step is the production of syngas (CO+H 2 ) in the primary reformer which relies...
Calcium looping shows significant promise for CO 2 capture. The process can lead to an energy penalty as low as 6 - 8 % including the compression of the lean CO 2 stream, compared to 9.5 - 12.5 % for amine-based post-combustion capture. To implement this technology on an industrial...
