Grant award success for Dr. Paola Lettieri (PI) for a project on "Carbon capture and storage for small scale gas fired combined heat and power schemes"
3 June 2013
Dr. Paola Lettieri (UCL PI), Dr. Dan Brett and Dr. Lazaros Papageorgiou have won a $240k grant from QNRF for a project on "Carbon capture and storage for small scale gas fired combined heat and power schemes" which is a joint collaboration with GORD (Gulf Organization for Research & Development) and Hoare Lea, a consultancy company from Bristol.
The budget for UCL is $240k. This research proposal aims to investigate an innovative scalable electrochemical process (CWx) designed to capture CO2 (and other gases), using locally available seawater based with potential to integrate into a variety of industrial, buildings, energy and petrochemical applications.
The main objective of the project is to demonstrate the technical economic & environmental feasibility of a novel integrated carbon capture system to enable subsequent large-scale demonstration projects. Using a combination of Life Cycle Analysis and Optimization methods, the work will advance knowledge in the use of the technology and address key barriers to its widespread deployment. The carbon water Exchange technology offers a potentially cost effective carbon capture approach that offers wider environmental benefits. It can be applied to any combustion process whether in the built environment, process engineering, industry or petrochemicals.
