Mixing Cement with Power Plants to Reduce Emissions

Some research news from the College's Centre for Carbon Capture and Storage. As reported by the Royal Society of Chemistry, Departmental members Dr. Paul Fennell, Prof. Denis Dugwell and PhD student Charles Dean have demonstrated that by combining two major industrial processes - fossil fuel power generation and cement manufacturing - it should be possible to both save energy and greatly reduce CO2 emissions associated with these processes.

If you want to learn more about how exactly the proposed sytem could work, the article is available on the Journal of Energy and Environment Science's website here.

Dr. Fennell was also recently quoted in another RSC article on European Commission funding for Carbon Capture and Storage technologies which you can read here.
