Haroun Mahgerefteh is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at UCL. His research spans all aspects of CCUS, particularly CO2 pipeline safety and operational issues. He is the coordinator of several UKCCSRC funded projects and the EC FP7 and H2020 projects, CO2PipeHaz, CO2QUEST and C4U involving the collaboration between academics and industry partners in Europe, China, Canada and USA. Project highlights include the development of best practice guidelines for injection of CO2 into highly depleted gas fields and the construction of world’s longest fully instrumented CO2 pipeline rupture test facility. Haroun is one of the two lead authors of the Zero Emission Platform report titled ‘A Trans-European CO2 Transportation Infrastructure for CCUS: Opportunities & Challenges’. The report is aimed at facilitating the development of a pipeline and ship infrastructure for transporting several Mt/yr of CO2 captured from major regional industrial emitters for permanent offshore geological storage; considered as key enabler for meeting Net Zero emission target by 2030.
