Nottingham center to help UK to meet its carbon targets

Cutting-edge technology that captures polluting carbon dioxide and stores it permanently inside rocks will be developed at a new 1.1m research centre at The University of Nottingham.

Dr Mercedes Maroto-Valer, Associate Professor and Reader in Energy Technology, has won 1.1m for a new centre that is set to play a crucial role in the fight against climate change.

The Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS) due to open in October 2007 will develop novel technologies to trap and store greenhouse gases permanently and safely, so they are not released into the atmosphere.

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), through the Challenging Engineering initiative, has just announced a five-year funding package for CICCS, with a view to it becoming a world leader in the development of novel processes for carbon capture and storage and establishing partnerships with major international industries and research centres.

Dr Maroto-Valer, Director of the Centre, said: The novel technologies developed at the Centre will enable the UK to meet its targets for the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and thus help the UK to play its part in global efforts to tackle climate change.

CO2 is the main culprit in global warming and in the UK almost a third of these emissions come from power stations. The storage method to be developed at CICCS could cut such CO2 releases to zero in a safe and reliable manner.

The Centre will work on research at the interface of science and engineering, industry and international cooperation in order to accelerate technological innovation in the field and lead to a wider deployment of carbon capture and storage. The Centre will also have a strong programme of knowledge transfer and training with a range of opportunities for industrial engagement.
