Call for abstracts: GHGT-17

Deadline: 16 January 2024
IEAGHG have announced a Call for Abstracts for GHGT-17.  This will take place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in October 2024.

Submissions of abstracts should align with the conference's technical themes. Abstracts should provide detailed information to facilitate fair assessment and accurately represent the content of the proposed paper. Special attention will be given to presentations showcasing results and developments in CCS, CCUS, and clean energy technologies.

Please note that substitution of papers will not be accepted, and submitted abstracts must reflect the intended presentation at GHGT-17.

Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) MOOC – Climate Change: Carbon Capture and Storage

Deadline: No expiration date
Opportunity type: Online course
Organisation: SCCS
Location: Online
Application deadline: Available online

Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) is launching it’s MOOC, or Massive Open Online Course, on 1st November 2022 on ‘Climate Change: Carbon Capture and Storage’.

The five-week course, taught by leading experts at the University of Edinburgh, will explore carbon capture and storage (CCS), a set of technologies that can radically rein in CO2 emissions and help nations reach net zero by 2050.

The course, which has seen nearly 25,000 participants from across the world sign up for previous runs, begins on 1 November and places CCS in the context of climate change, global energy and economics, the use of fossil fuels and global climate policy. The world’s first such course to cover CCS and climate change, it has been developed for those with no prior knowledge and this year, for the first time, the course will also be available in Mandarin.

Watch the introductory video and register

Course participants will learn about:

  • how to protect the atmosphere, with CCS technology, from an excess of CO2;

  • the uniqueness of CCS to complement other low-carbon technologies;

  • the potential to make fossil fuels “safe to use” in the context of the Paris Climate Change Agreement of 2015;

  • key sectors of the global economy, where CCS can contribute to deep reductions in emissions;

  • how CCS can unlock carbon negative solutions, which will need to be used before mid-century;

  • the scientific principles of climate mitigation technologies;

  • the key elements of geology for permanently, and safely, disposing of CO2 underground;

  • the international state-of-play and scale of the industry in the 21st century.

What is a MOOC? The University of Edinburgh has a range of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which are freely accessible and open-licensed short courses delivered online. On completion, there is the option to gain a Verified Certificate.

Funding opportunity: UKRI cross research council responsive mode pilot scheme

Deadline: No expiration date
*This is a pre-announcement and the information may change. More information will be available on this page in March 2023.

Apply for funding for interdisciplinary ideas that transcend, combine or significantly span disciplines.

You must be based at a UK research organisation eligible for UKRI research council funding.

This pilot scheme will support breakthrough or disruptive interdisciplinary ideas not routinely funded through existing UKRI responsive mode schemes.

Awards will be potentially transformative for the participating disciplines or lead to the creation of new disciplines.

The full economic cost of your project can be between £200,000 to £1.2 million. UKRI will fund 80% of the full economic cost. We expect to make around 36 awards.

Funding is available for up to 2 years.

PhD Studentship: Control and operation of advanced modular chemical looping process

Deadline: No expiration date
The Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of Manchester are offering a PhD Project (UK Students Only).

Chemical looping reforming in packed bed reactors is among the most promising technologies in the area of syngas and hydrogen production. The University of Manchester is currently building a pilot-scale process to operate the gas-solid reaction close to industrial operations. The plant will be fully integrated with sensors, data recording, inline instrumentation that could provide an incredible amount of data to fully demonstrate the feasibility of the technology towards commercial application.

The main objective of this PhD project is to develop a smart platform towards the digitalisation of chemical looping reforming to optimise the performance of the process.
