Carbon Emission Reduction Technologies and Environmental
£98,500.00
The main aim of this project is to assess the technical and logistic feasibility of domestic scale carbon capture options and to understand the implications on overall performance and safety.

This project will aim to build upon existing knowledge of carbon capture focusing on domestic customers.
The objectives of this project are to:
  • Carry out an assessment of carbon capture technologies for domestic gas boiler flues, evaluating the performance of existing materials, and the requirements for releasing the captured carbon dioxide in a controlled and useful manner during processing operations.
  • Quantify the potential carbon emission reduction based on the current performance of the materials, and a prediction of the future targets for such technologies.
  • Evaluate the impact on the performance and operation of appliances to assess if a retro-fit is possible or if full appliance replacement is required.
