Carbon Capture

Research focused on developing and demonstrating technologies that will significantly reduce the costs of capturing CO2 while minimising the environmental footprint of energy production.

Our Research

The Capture Program’s primary aim is to reduce the cost and environmental impact of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a range of sources including coal and gas fired power stations, steel and cement production, in addition to 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 research program focuses effort on three technologies, including solvent systems, membrane processes and adsorption, with research undertaken across a broad spectrum, from the fundamental through to pilot plant demonstration.
