We provide world class research and testing facilities:
Pilot Scale Advanced CO2 Capture Technology (PACT) Facilities
PACT is the national facility for combustion and carbon capture technology research, encompassing advanced fossil-fuel energy, bioenergy and CCUS technologies for power generation and industrial applications.
The facility bridges the gap between bench scale research and development, and industrial pilot trials. PACT enables users to develop and demonstrate technology to provide the commercial confidence needed, before committing to the significant costs of large scale trials.
Since receiving seed funding from EPSRC in 2012 as part of the first phase of the UKCCSRC, PACT has supported 42 projects that included:
- 70+ industrial companies
- 40+ academic partners
- 670 test days
Over the next five years PACT currently has scheduled:
- 9 projects
- 400+ test days
