20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module will offer training that meet the needs of both academic research and wider industrial stakeholders and provide hand-on experience of operating pilot scale tests at the national UKCCSRC-PACT facilities, and knowledge of simulation of advanced carbon capture technologies for power generation industry. The course will cover different capture technologies and relevant experimental facilities including their health and safety requirements. On completion of the module students will be able to design, conduct and analyse industrial experiments using large scale facilities for new CCS capture technology development and appreciate and be able to adhere to industrial health and safety practices.
