Workshop on Capture and Utilisation of CO2 with Fuel Cells and Electrolysis

22nd February 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


Free to attend

Fuel cell-based technologies are at the centre of a clean energy revolution:  delivering clean electricity from hydrogen in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, producing heat and power with reduced air pollution from natural gas to up to the tens of megawatts capacity in natural gas fuel cell power plant.  Recent developments in molten carbonate and solid oxide cells could enable Fuel Cells to become a game changer in Carbon Capture from fossil fuel power plant and could support the development of a new industrial branch of chemistry from CO2 feedstock.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a platform to discuss and initiate new research collaborations within the SCCS partnership: to progress alternative CO2 capture technologies and help develop new areas of industrial CO2 utilisation.

Speakers include:

  • Professor John Irvine (University of St Andrews), “Solid Oxide Cells for CO2 reduction”.
  • Arturo Meléndez-Ceballos (Chimie-Paris Tech), “Molten carbonates based technology for carbon capture and CO2 valorisation”
  • Jennifer Garden (School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh) “New catalytic route to access polymer materials from CO2”
