Wetenhall, Ben

Ben Wetenhall is a lecturer at Newcastle University. His research interest is decarbonising industrial processes and energy generation, primarily through transportation by pipeline of carbon dioxide (CO2) for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) schemes and hydrogen for use as an alternate energy source. Some examples of previous research topics include material and specification requirements for novel pipelines, the impact of impurities on CO2 pipelines and shipping, pipeline failure frequency and consequence analysis (including developing analytical and CFD CO2 building ingress models), CCS network flexibility, and the effect of injecting cold CO2 on the surrounding rock.
