Molecular modelling and experimental Investigation of the oxygen reduction reaction in PEM fuel cells.

Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cells are of great promise for future energy production systems, encompassing large scale down to portable power source applications, with the promise of high efficiency and minimal pollutant emission. Read more

Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technology

Fuel cells have been considered as one of the promising technologies for the next generation energy production systems, because of their high energy efficiency and low pollutant emission. Read more

Dynamic simulation of load-following power plants integrated with CO2 capture technologies

Flexible operation of fossil fuel power plants is becoming a hot topic in the energy generation sector due to the expected increase of intrinsically intermittent renewable technologies in the energy mix in the near future. Read more

Process modelling of biomass gasification systems integrated with CO2 capture

Combination of energy generation from biomass sources and CO2 capture technologies (Bio-CCS or BECCS) is already recognized as a potential option to tackle climate change in most scenarios, as it is linked to the concept of negative CO2 emissions. Read more

Integration of membranes at PACT for industrial testing with real/synthetic flue gases

A pre-pilot-scale membrane module prototype will be installed for industrial testing at the UKCCSRC PACT) Facilities, integrated with a gas turbine and a solid fuel reactor for coal/biomass to test number of fuels and operating conditions. Read more

Particle size distribution in flue gases for carbon capture

The UKCCSRC PACT Facilities are home to numerous combustion devices. natural gas-fired gas turbines and a pulverized fuel reactor burning coal and biomass, used for CCS applications either coupled with post-combustion capture or when operating under oxy-combustion conditions. Read more

Next generation CCS technology for combined cycle gas turbine system

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) from CCGT (combine cycle gas turbine) systems is an emerging near-zero emission technology that can applied to new and retrofit CCGT power plants, leading to a substantial reduction in carbon emission to the atmosphere in power generation industry. Read more

The Development of Models for Mercury Oxidation in Oxyfuel Combustion

Oxyfuel combustion is one of the leading technologies for Carbon Capture and Storage. Mercury is released to the gas-phase during oxyfuel combustion of coal and biomass and form trace species in flue-gas. Read more

Modelling post combustion amine CO2 capture plant

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an emerging near-zero emission technology that can applied to next generation gas turbine based power stations, new and retrofit, leading to a substantial reduction in carbon emission to the atmosphere. Read more

Combined Cycle Gas Turbine – CCS; experiment and modelling

This project will combine an experimental and modelling study of a combined cycle gas turbine with CCS. A Turbec T100 gas turbine will be modified to allow the investigation of the effect of exhaust gas recycle and or steam injection on its performance, with measurement of power output and exhaust gas emissions. Read more

Oxy-fuel Power plant design

Conceptual designs for coal-fired power plants seek improved methods of heat and process integration to improve overall plant efficiency using conventional technologies for power generation and oxygen production. Read more

CFD modelling and advanced burner designs

A substantial amount of current activity on oxyfuel combustion capture is still at the conceptual design stage, encompassing a broad range of fuels and power systems, including the development of alternative system configurations that maximize overall efficiency and minimize estimated capital and operating costs.
