Carbon Capture, Storage & Use

Carbon Capture, Storage & Use research within the energy initiative is carried out across a number of departments and research groups at the University of Cambridge.

Research into Carbon capture research includes:

  • Chemical looping of solid fuels to produce clean CO2 free of nitrogen.
  • The shift reaction for the hydrogasification of coal to methane gas, as well as steam reforming of methane to hydrogen with solid sorbents which absorb carbon dioxide.
  • The modelling of particle motion and chemical reactions in circulating fluidised beds for oxyfuel firing.

Research into carbon storage includes:

  • The physics and modelling of gravity driven multi-phase flow.
  • The chemistry of fluid-fluid & fluid-mineral reactions.
  • Seismological observations and the sampling of active injection sites & geological analogues.
  • The policy and public perceptions of carbon storage.

Research into captured carbon dioxide use include:

  • Power generation
  • Manufacturing processes
  • Carbonate mineralisation

We collaborate with industrial partners and are also actively involved in increasing both energy awareness and public understanding of the opportunities and challenges in carbon capture, storage & use.

Please visit individual faculty profiles to learn more about their research in the Carbon Capture, Storage & Use theme.  The lead for Carbon Capture, Storage & Use is Professor Mike Bickle.
