Carbon Capture

Our Research

The Capture Program’s primary aim is to reduce the cost and environmental impact of capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a range of sources including coal and gas fired power stations, from steel and cement production, as well as from natural gas. The research focuses on developing and demonstrating technologies that will significantly reduce the costs of capturing CO2 thereby mitigating financial risk for industry. We are interested in exploiting the captured CO2 and have a portfolio of projects examining utilisation strategies.

The program centres on the three technologies of solvent systems, membranes and adsorption all of which have application in specific areas. Research is being undertaken across a spectrum of work, from the fundamental through to demonstration of operating plants.
