Carbon Emission Reduction Technologies and Environmental
The aim of this project is to develop a concept design for large commercial and small industrial users that not only captures carbon to reduce overall emissions, but also adds value to the user through repurposing captured carbon into either a useful mineral product or conversion to “renewable” methane using methanation.

This project will aim to build upon existing knowledge of carbon capture and utilisation technology, focusing on I&C users.
The objectives of this project are to:
  • Carry out an assessment of carbon capture technologies for small industrial and large commercial gas applications, evaluating the impacts of retro-fit and the potential quality and scale of the carbon dioxide stream produced.
  • Carry out a quality review of captured carbon dioxide for use in mineralisation and methanation.
  • Review design options for methanation and mineralisation systems, and estimating the overall efficiency of these processes.
  • Understand the quality of the mineralised product and options for reuse of this material.
  • Carry out an assessment of the gas quality from the methanation process to ensure suitability and compliance with grid entry requirements.
  • Quantify the potential carbon emission reduction benefit resulting from any practical future installations of the target systems.
  • Carry out an assessment of the potential capital and operating costs for these installations, to determine a cost per tonne of carbon abated.
