Process Optimization of Liquid Fuel Synthesis From Renewable Energy Sources


Department of Mechanical Engineering

About the Project

Demand for energy supply in the present global environment is continuously increasing with the growth of population and economic development. This poses problems both in terms of sustainability and carbon emissions. Standard approaches to CO2 capture and storage impose a cost that discourages their implementation. This project proposes to investigate an alternative which is the conversion of CO2 with hydrogen into a commercially valuable liquid fuel. The gPROMs and ASPEN process modelling packages will be used to investigate the overall system performance and economics of various plant configurations, and propose optimal configurations for these systems.
