Work with industry

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

We take guidance from our Independent Advisory Panel

Our management team works alongside an Independent Advisory Panel [link to IAP people page] to develop a shared vision for effective industrial engagement, forward planning and delivery mechanisms. IAP membership is comprised of over twenty highly regarded individuals from CCS stakeholder groups and related industrial organisations, however all members act in a personal capacity.

We facilitate joint industry and academic workshops

The UKCCSRC hosts workshops to enable collaboration/ideas sharing with industrial stakeholders on specific topics. The workshops often produce recommendations for CCS research and development or policy decisions.
