Mechatronics of Carbon Capture from the atmosphere

The technology you will develop features an innovative low-grade-heat-powered direct air capture unit. The direct air capture unit removes carbon dioxide from the air, concentrates it and compresses it to feed the electrochemical stack. Read more

Where has all of the carbon gone? Understanding the molecular mechanisms of long-term soil carbon capture

Soils, while unglamorous, form the basis of the terrestrial biosphere and are ultimately the source of the majority of the food that we eat, yet fundamental aspects of how soils form and how they store carbon are poorly understood. Read more

Techno‐Economic Impact of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
The reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases is agreed in November 2016 in the Paris international agreement (IEA Dec. 2016). The agreement is expected to create a transformative change in the energy sector to combat climate change. Read more

Dynamic simulation of power generation plant for carbon capture and storage

The new generation of power plants should offer effective solutions to reduce emissions and implement CO2 capture and storage. However, the combination of a complex fuel-processing plant and the level of integration lead to challenging problems with respect to the dynamic/transient operation. Read more

Post-combustion CO2 capture solvents: addressing the knowledge gap with long-term testing

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of a series of climate change mitigation technologies. It is essential to achieve the carbon neutrality of the Paris Climate Change agreement (Find out more here). Read more

Centres for Doctoral Training - 4 Year PhD Studentships

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850m a year. Read more

Enabling Net Zero Emissions Targets through Post Combustion Capture (PCC) of CO2 Using Amine-based Emerging Technology

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is one of the key activities that will allow anthropogenic carbon emissions to reach net zero and net negative in time to avoid dangerous climate change. Most large-scale CCS operations rely on amine solvents for post-combustion CO. Read more

Direct air capture of carbon dioxide; new materials and processes

Direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS) is a carbon dioxide removal technology that separates CO2 directly from the air using an engineered system [1]. Read more

Innovative direct air capture and utilisation system for the production of renewable fuel

Direct air capture (DAC), which involves atmospheric CO2 removal, must be implemented alongside other decarbonisation technologies to achieve global climate change mitigation objectives. Read more

Cleaner Waste Systems through Simultaneous CO2 Capture and Utilisation

The water and wastewater sector are responsible for around 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Every day, large volumes of sludge are generated, which must be treated to reuse standard but the sector is constrained on the amount of waste it can process due to the poor biodegradability of solids. Read more

Simulation, optimization and control of fluid catalytic cracking unit for CO2 minimization

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
The simulation model of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) unit and many other refinery processes maximise the yields of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, propylene and minimise the yields of CO2. Read more
