CICCS researchers win places on the COACH Spring School in China

Three researchers from the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS) have won places to attend a Spring School in Hangzhou China organised by the COACH project. Ameena Camps, Steve Bouzalakos and Anna Kaminska will all be funded by the COACH project to spend 10 days at Zhejiang University studying aspects of CO2 storage. Only 8 researchers were selected from the whole of Europe and 3 of them are from CICCS!

COACH is a Sino-European research project aimed at creating strong and durable cooperation between China and Europe. Responding to the fast growing energy demands of China, the project aims to prepare the ground for new energy technology options that employ CO2 capture and permanent geological storage (CCS) - including the use of CO2 for enhanced oil or gas recovery.

These are topics of great importance to future generations and a crucial aspect of COACH will be to identify and rank candidate capture technologies that constitute the best options for China on a short-term basis. COACH will offer an arena in China for knowledge-sharing among a group of professionals, researchers and scientists involved in international CCS programmes with the potential to influence China's environmental future.

CICCS at Nottingham was established by Professor Mercedes Maroto-Valer, with substantial funding from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and is bringing together experts from many different fields of expertise to work together on ways of dealing both with the CO2 we currently produce and the reduction of how much CO2 we produce in the future. Engineers, mathematicians, bio-scientists, geographers and geologists are all collaborating to find solutions that could ultimately help towards the future protection of our planet.
