Capture and Utilisation of CO2 with Fuel Cells and Electrolysis

  • Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation High School Yards Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 1LZ United Kingdom (map)

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.

•               Vinay Mulgundmath(Doosan Babcock).

•               Arturo Meléndez-Ceballos (Chimie-Paris Tech), Molten carbonates based technology for carbon capture and CO2 valorisation.

•               Mathieu Lucquiaud (SCCS, University of Edinburgh), Solid Oxide Fuel Cells: Challenges and opportunities for repowering and retrofitting CO2 capture to existing thermal power plants.

•               Professor Fredrik Glasser (SCCS, University of Aberdeen), CO2 capture and conversion to useful products.

•               Ruben Carr (Ingenza Ltd), An industrial biotechnology perspective to lower CO2 emissions in biobased chemical manufacturing.

•               Jennifer Garden (School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh) New catalytic route to access polymer materials from CO2.

There is no cost to attend this workshop, but prior registration is required.
