The Align-CCUS Project uses PACT facilities for pilot scale testing


The Pilot-scale Advanced Capture Technology (PACT) facilities were funded jointly by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (now BEIS) with 5 academic partners: Cranfield, Edinburgh, Imperial, Leeds, Nottingham and Sheffield, and are part of the UKCCSRC. 

PACT facilities bridge the gap between bench-scale R&D and large-scale industrial pilot trials, enabling users to develop and demonstrate their technologies to provide the necessary commercial confidence before committing to the significant costs of large-scale trails.

PACT’s aim is to support and catalyse industrial and academic research. By doing so, the ambition is to accelerate the development and commercialisation of novel technologies for carbon capture and clean power generation and ultimately reduce greenhouse gas emissions from both power generation and energy intensive industries.
