Course Description

Carbon capture and storage is an important technology for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating global warming. This course will cover fundamentals for CO2 separation from syngas and post-combustion flue gas, the most advanced CO2 capture technologies including absorption, adsorption and membranes, CO2 compression and transportation, and CO2 sequestration in deep underground geological formations. The course will have regular lecture sessions, combined with reading and discussion sessions as well as the writing of a short research paper.
