UCL Chemical Engineering: Situated in the heart of London, UCL is consistently ranked amongst the top 10 universities in the world with 97% of the Chemical Engineering Department’s research outputs submitted to the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), being rated as either “world leading” (4*) or “internationally excellent”.

Within CaLby2030, UCL:

Deals with the development of a model to identify the optimal solution for the transportation of the CO2 from the carbon capture demonstration plants to the destination sites (for geological storage or utilization), taking into consideration costs, safety and environmental impacts.

The most relevant CCUS projects where UCL is and has been involved in, are:

  • C4U – Advanced Carbon Capture for steel industries integrated in CCUS Clusters - Coordinated by UCL – Funded by Horizon2020, C4U aims to demonstrate two highly efficient solid based CO2 capture technologies for optimal integration into an iron and steel plant, with detailed consideration of the safety, environmental, societal, policy and business aspects for successful incorporation into the North Sea Port CCUS industrial cluster in Belgium and the Netherlands. https://c4u-project.eu/
  • ENCASE – A European Network of Research Infrastructures for CO2 Transport and Injection. A Horizon Europe project aiming to improve 7 world-leading CCS-related research infrastructures (RIs), with the purpose to contribute to a safer, more cost-effective, and environmentally friendly CO2 transport and well injection.
  • CO2QUEST - Coordinated by UCL, CO2QUEST project focussed on the development of state-of-the-art mathematical models along with the use of large scale experiments to identify the important CO2 mixtures that have the most profound impact on the different parts of the CCS chain. https://www.co2quest.eu/
