Event description

Description

Imperial alumni in British Columbia invite you to join them at the iconic Hotel Vancouver, where Professor Paul Fennell will be presenting his critical climate change research on carbon capture and storage, and introducing two spin-out companies set up by his PhD students. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about Professor Fennell's work and connect with fellow alumni from Imperial and other institutions.

Talk synopsis

In order to meet the IPCC recommendation for an 80% cut in CO2 emissions by 2050, industries will be required to drastically reduce their emissions. To meet these targets, technologies such as carbon capture and storage (CCS) must be part of the economic set of decarbonisation options for industry.

This talk will explore new and interesting technologies to conduct CCS and their integration with different industries, including some detailed research conducted at IC investigating novel high temperature CO2 capture cycles, including integration with cement manufacture.

Professor Fennell will also discuss his recent work and spin-out company
developing novel bioenergy processes running on contaminated waste materials.
