Project (Grant)

LEILAC (Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement) is a European Union Horizon 2020 (H2020) research and innovation project. LEILAC will pilot a breakthrough carbon capture technology that would enable both Europe’s cement and lime industries to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions dramatically without significant energy or capital...
The project will investigate the impacts of real flue gas and vent gas recycling on the combustion performance, emissions, ignition and flame stability of oxy-coal combustion by means of 250kW PACT facility testing and comprehensively validated CFD modelling, and to assess various flue gas recycling scenarios and the benefits of...
Industry is responsible for 25% of carbon dioxide emissions from the European Union with around 60% of these emissions coming from the energy-intensive chemical, petrol refining, cement, steel and cement industries. The products of these process plants are fundamental to the global economy however many of the corresponding manufacturing processes...
Research challenge - The key challenges in carbon capture from industry lie in the wide range of conditions (temperature, pressure, composition) and scale of the processes encountered in industrial applications. For carbon capture from industrial sources the drivers and mechanisms to achieve emissions reductions will be very different from those...
cmcl innovations leads the C-FAST project, which aims to produce liquid hydrocarbon fuels and commodity chemicals with a negative/neutral carbon footprint. The C-FAST (patent-filed) plant design uniquely combines sustainable and renewable energy (e.g. solar and wind) sources with algal biomass cultivation, processing and refining technologies. The spectrum of products and...
The vision of the proposed research is to develop activated carbon adsorbents and system models to improve the efficiency, flexibility and operability of IGCC processes . Novel activated carbon (AC) adsorbents prepared from resin precursors have the ability to be tailored to control both their CO 2 adsorption capacity and...
UK electricity generation still relies around 80% on fossil fuels, with a resulting carbon intensity - the amount of carbon emitted to the atmosphere per unit of electricity generated - ten times higher than the level recommended to avoid dangerous climate change. Half of that electricity currently comes for natural...
The UK Government has set targets for the reduction of CO 2 emissions of 80 % by 2050. Post-combustion capture of CO 2 from power plants is key if we are to achieve these targets. Post-combustion CO 2 capture is challenging due to the low concentration of CO 2 in...
CO 2 emissions from industry occur typically from a number of small, low concentration sources with a wide range of flue gas compositions and impurity profiles. For example, in a refinery, CO 2 is emitted from many process furnaces, hydrogen production units and power generation plant, and emission points are...
This multidisciplinary proposal unites leading engineers and scientists from the Universities of Heriot-Watt, Hull and Newcastle to realise our vision of integrating novel hydrotalcite solid sorbents with advanced heat integration processes for industrial CO 2 capture. Hydrotalcite materials present a big potential for industrial CCS, as they show faster kinetics...
