Event description

Description


Are you interested in what we do about the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide? Come and find out about technologies that seek to mitigate the problem. Take the opportunity to network and find out how your research could help.

Programme - (Tea/coffee and cakes available from 13.30)

14.00: Welcome and introduction - 'Utilisation and Sequestration:2 more of the Clean Carbon research themes' Dr Lindsay Armstrong, Chair of the Clean Carbon USRG

14.15: ‘Using waste carbon to produce chemicals for making the ultimate product: renewable hydrocarbon fuel’ - Professor Robert Raja

14.45: Introducing Clean Carbon research themes: Dr Pier Sazio theme lead for (Utilisation) and Dr Juerg Matter theme lead for (Sequestration)

15.15: Comfort break, more tea and a chance to network

15.45: ‘STEMM-CC: an innovative and unique simulation experiment in The North Sea’ Dr Doug Connelly

16:15: Panel session - all four speakers: Q & A, chaired by Dr Lindsay Armstrong

16.35: Wine and nibbles and another chance to network

17.00 Finish

Dr Robert Raja's research team takes the line that rather than view CO2 emissions as environmentally harmful waste, we seeks ways to utilise that waste in the production of chemicals which can then be used for something useful. The target is the ultimate high value product - the photosynthetic and thermochemical catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide and water to renewable hydrocarbon fuel. COme and hear more about how this can be done and how our research is helping to achieve this goal.

Now that is is possible to capture waste CO2 emissions we need to improve the ways that we store such waste safely and securely. Come and hear Dr Doug Connelly who will talk about an innovative new project which will be conducting a unique simulation experiment in The North Sea, 100 km North East of Aberdeen to test whether our monitoring technologies will be able to detect CO2 in a scenario where there is a possible escape of CO2 from an undersea storage facility such as a depleted oil or gas reserve.
