Our research

Woman

Five themes

  • Techniques to carbon neutral fuels such as biomass and hydrogen to be used in systems designed for fossil fuels.
  • Use of CO2 as a chemical feedstock for industry and manufacture – turning a waste into a product.
  • Use of biomass as a feedstock for chemical processes as a replacement for fossil fuels.
  • CO2 capture technologies for a range of in industrial sectors, including power, iron, steel, cement and glass-making.
  • Automation of large energy-intensive processes to improve their flexibility and emission performance.
