  • Rebranding Announcement

    We are delighted to announce that Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Solution (CICCS) is rebranded to Research Centre for Carbon Solutions (RCCS), due to a growth of the centre's research porfortlio and to reflect more closely the breadth of our research activities in the whole CCUS chain, clean energy and sustainability.

Conference

  • Funmi and Elizabeth attended the ICCDU

     

    Dr Oluwafunmilola Ola and Elizabeth Bay attended the 13th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU) in Singapore from July 5th through the 9th, 2015. Dr Oluwafunmilola Ola attended as speaker to the conference to present her work “CO2 photoreduction via CeO2-TiO2 coated two dimensional PMMA plates" and a poster. Elizabeth Bay also spoke presenting her work on "Normalization of Product Results In Photocatalytic Reduction of CO2".

    The conference covered subjects from chemical conversion and capture technologies all the way to life cycle analysis and economic and policy aspects of carbon dioxide utilization. The diverse conference topics and various plenary speakers enabled communication between academia, government and industrial communities. (http://www.iccdu2015.sg/) The importance of refined high value chemicals to carbon dioxide utilization in the current economic climate was obvious from the majority of talks presented. Ola and Bay were also able to go on the Jurong Island visit and see the Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences facility. Both are grateful for the opportunity.

    Be sure to note that the  14th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization will be held at the University of Sheffield, UK from the 11th -15th September 2016. (http://iccdu2016.org.uk/)

  • IMPEE PhD student wins travel grant to present at International Conference

    Muhammad Farooq at the International Conference Progress in Biogas IV.

    IMPEE PhD student Mr Muhammad Farooq was awarded a Travel Grant by UK Anaerobic Digestion Network (ADNET) to present his research paper at International Conference Progress in Biogas IV held in Stuttgart Germany.

    The International Conference Progress in Biogas IV was held in Stuttgart, Germany on March 8th to 11th 2017 at the University of Hohenheim.The fourth edition of the conference covered the advances on low-tech biogas plants, biogas generation from bio-waste, its application and management, innovative technologies, as well as the optimal integration of biogas in the energy system. Farooq presented his research paper titled "Biogas quality upgrade by adsorption and regeneration of in-situ regenerative activated carbon in a packed bed column." Muhammad Farooq is doing his PhD under the supervision of Dr John M Andresen and is a member of Research for Carbon Solutions(RCCS), headed by Prof Mercedes Maroto-Valer.

    Muhammad says: "It was a very enriching experience as the conference provided a highly interactive platform for prime researchers, experts and enterprisers to share recent advances in technology of clean and renewable energy and especially in the emerging field of biogas. Let’s make joint efforts for a clean, green and economically sustainable world. I also realized how vanguard and iconoclastic research at Heriot-Watt is adding to the practical implications in sustainable development. I am appreciative of the support Anaerobic Digestion Network (ADNET UK) extended for providing travel grant to attend the International Conference. I am particularly indebted to Louise Byfield& Angie Bywater (AD Network Co-managers) for their extended support & co-operation. I owe a lot to IMPEE, Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh UK for providing me such exalting chances."  

  • Ph.D. student wins travel grant from ICEEES

    Congratulation to Muhammad Farooq, Ph.D. student of CICCS group who has been awarded to travel grant by International Scientific Advisory Committee of ICEEES to present his research findings at International Conference on Energy for Environment and Economic Sustainability (ICEEES)

     

    The Conference was held from 20-23 October 2016 in Historical City Lahore, Pakistan and the theme was ‘"To fuel the world with ecologically, economically sustainable energy." Muhammad presented his research findings titled "In-situ Regenerative Activated Carbon for Low-cost CO2 Removal for Sustainable Energy Development."

    Muhammad is doing his PhD under the supervision of Dr John M Andresen and is an active member of Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS), headed by Prof Mercedes Maroto-Valer.

     It made me realize how our research at Heriot-Watt is contributing to the practical implications in sustainable development. -- Muhammad Farooq

    Muhammad said "It was a very significant event for me as the conference provided an excellent opportunity with a highly interactive platform for leading new energy researchers, experts and enterprisers to discuss recent advances in the technology of clean and renewable energy. Let’s make joint efforts for a clean, green, and economically sustainable world. It made me realize how our research at Heriot-Watt is contributing to the practical implications in sustainable development. I am indebted to the support of Organizing Committee of ICEEES for providing me with the opportunity to attend the conference."

    The 13th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT-13) was hosted in Lausanne, Switzerland from 14th to 18th November 2016. The two yearly GHGT conference has become the most prestigious international event to present and hear about new research, new technical developments and demonstration projects updates in the field of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS). Some members from the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions (RCCS), who are working in the field of capture, transport and geological storage presented results of their research in both the Oral and Poster sessions. This event has been a great opportunity to share our research activities at RCCS with the large community of CCS, as well as to learn about other projects and ideas in this area.

    The Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT) conference series was formed in 1997 following the merger of the earlier series of ICCDR and the Greenhouse Gas: Mitigation options conference. The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) is the guardian of the conference series. The GHGT conferences are held every two years in IEAGHG's member countries. The conference series rotates between North America, Europe and Asia. The GHGT conference series has established itself as the principal international conference on greenhouse gas mitigation technologies especially on CCS (CO2 Capture and Storage).
