The three professors

The University of Edinburgh (UoE) has made a major commitment to CCS research and recently recruited Professor John Gibbins to head up Power Plant Engineering & Carbon Capture, working as part of a team which also includes Professor Stuart Haszeldine, a geologist who focuses on storage and the wider issues involved in CCS, and Professor Stefano Brandani, who specialises in the chemical processes used in the capture of carbon dioxide.…


 

The University of Edinburgh (UoE) has made a major commitment to CCS research and recently recruited Professor John Gibbins to head up Power Plant Engineering & Carbon Capture, working as part of a team which also includes Professor Stuart Haszeldine, a geologist who focuses on storage and the wider issues involved in CCS, and Professor Stefano Brandani, who specialises in the chemical processes used in the capture of carbon dioxide.

The ultimate aim is to make UoE a centre of excellence for CCS, looking after every step in the process from capture to transport all the way through to storage, taking into account economics, social impact and legal issues, as well as chemistry, geology and engineering.  The UoE is also doing research into specialist topics like biochar, in conjunction with its neighbours at Heriot-Watt University, helped by a 5-year grant from the Scottish Funding Council.
