Objectives
Abstract A Dti Technology Programme (Low Carbon Energy Technologies) joint proposal submitted by Fraser Wigley, involving Imperial College s Materials, Chemical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering Depts, the University of Nottingham, RWE npower, E.ON UK, Mitsui Babcock, Air Products and BP, has been successful. The OxyCoal-UK project will tackle engineering problems in the development of a coal-fired power station with a waste gas stream suitable for carbon capture and storage. The project will receive a total grant of 2.8M, 450k of which will come to Imperial College.
