Low Carbon Energy and Resources Technologies Research Group


Research priorities for the Cleaner Fossil Energy and Carbon Capture Technologies Research Group includes:

  • CO2 Capture Technologies
  • Coal and Biomass Utilisation
  • Oil, Gas and the Environment 

The group has two main research applications - power generation (reduced emissions) and industrial processes which includes:

  • cement production
  • steel production
  • oil and gas processing
