CM5556: GAS SEPARATION, STORAGE AND USAGE (2023-2024)

Last modified: 05 Oct 2023 08:46


Course Overview

Gas separation, storage and utilisation represents one of the key challenges within a sustainable energy transition.  For too long, energy production/consumption has been accompanied by greenhouse gas emission.

Course Description

Gas separation, storage and utilisation represents one of the key challenges within a sustainable energy transition.  For too long, energy production/consumption has been accompanied by greenhouse gas emission.  In this module, we will consider the chemistry, technology and policy behind things like carbon capture and storage (CCS).  The topic will discuss the use of porous materials, sorption and membranes for separation/storage.  We will also consider opportunities for utilisation of the separated gas via use of catalysis.  This in turn will help us to think about sustainable carbon based fuels.
