About the Project
This PhD project will use advanced simulation tools to investigate two-stage processes in which CO2 is first captured from a dilute source and then concentrated to 95% purity in a second stage. The simulations will involve the optimal selection of the sorbents themselves (both solids and liquids) and the optimisation of the process in which these sorbents are deployed. Optimisation can be carried out in a way that both satisfies practical constraints and minimises cost (e.g. per ton of avoided emissions or their equivalent). This work will build upon the expertise of the investigator team in both materials for CO2 capture and chemical-engineering processes. Expected outcomes include (i) a new understanding of hybrid CO2-capture systems; (ii) the techno-economic assessments of alternative combinations of capture materials and capture processes; and (iii) the identification of the most favourable approaches based upon technologies that are commercially deployable in the near term.
