To mitigate climate change while meeting energy demand, the UK and other developed countries have set ambitious targets to reduce carbon emissions through carbon capture and storage (CCS). This short course introduces to the delegates different technologies and strategies for CO2 emission reduction from power generation and energy intensive industries. The course will be delivered by a team of leading researchers working on different aspect of CO2 capture from material, process modelling through to integration.
Course Objectives; on completion of the course, you should be able to:
- Explain different carbon capture approaches and carbon separation technologies
- Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of post-combustion carbon capture with chemical absorption
- Evaluate critically the advantages and limitations of various carbon capture approaches and separation technologies
- Demonstrate the ability to select different carbon separation technologies for different scenarios of power plants based on performance index.
- Emissions and Climate Change
- Carbon Sources
- Use of Captured Carbon
- Carbon Capture Approaches
- Carbon Separation Technologies
- Post-combustion Chemical Absorption
- IGCC with Physical Absorption
- Oxyfuel Process with Carbon Capture
- Chemical Looping Combustion
- Membrane Technology
- Case Study.
This is a one-week short course. The case study included is based on simulation. All delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course.
Who should attend?
This Carbon Capture Technologies course is suitable for engineers in the power generation or energy sectors and researchers who has aspiration to work in this challenging field.
