capture

Project (Grant)

Research into solid adsorbents for CO2 is motivated by their potential advantages over liquid amine, membrane or cryogenic separation techniques in mid-high temperature CO2 separation, for example, in hydrogen production via steam reforming/gasification of waste biomass where production yields are increased through the use of a sorbent powder such as...
`New ideas for carbon capture are urgently needed to combat climate change. Retro-fitting post-combustion carbon capture to existing power plants has the greatest potential to reduce CO2 emissions considering these sources make the largest contribution to CO2 emissions in the UK. Unfortunately, carbon capture methods based on existing industrial process...
The TRANSPACC project seeks to move beyond current concepts for designing CO 2 absorption columns for base-load operation, and move towards new column designs capable of meeting the requirements for fast, flexible and highly dynamic operation of fossil plants fitted with CO 2 capture. CCS power plants will typically expected...
Develop an innovative, algae based solution for the significant reduction of large scale industrial CO2 emissions.
Development of calcium looping technology. This 3MWe demonstrator is the basis for scale up to 50MWt units for (i) industrial applications (ii) in multiple units to decarbonise the fuel gas of NGCC or IGCC power stations.
To achieve the UK's ambitious target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050, it is widely accepted that from ca. 2030 Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) needs to be fitted to both coal and natural gas fired power plants. The flue gas characteristics of natural fired gas power...
Advancement of the safe design and operation of gas turbines using hydrogen-based fuels Identifying the bounds of safe design and operation Aim to increase the range of fuels that can be safely used in power and heat generating plant Hydrogen is likely to be an increasingly more important fuel component...
