Dr Mai Bui is a Research Associate at the Centre for Environmental Policy in the Faculty of Natural Sciences of Imperial College London. She is also a member of the Centre for Process Systems Engineering (CPSE). Mai is working on the Opening New Fuels for UK Generation project, which is investigating whether the combustion of biogenic waste derived fuels (e.g. wood from demolition sites) in large UK power plants is feasible. Her work focuses on developing grey-box models of the power plant and clean-up system. Mai will begin working on the CCS from Industrial clusters and their Supply chains (CCSInSupply) late 2016.
Mai completed her PhD at Monash University in Australia (2011-2015). She worked in collaboration with The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to study the effect of flexible operation during post-combustion capture (PCC) of CO2. Her work involved process modelling and dynamic operation of a PCC pilot plant.
