The Sustainable Gas Research & Innovation is in it’s third year. In 2017, we welcomed 200 delegates from academia and industry to São Paulo, Brazil. The aim of the two-day event is to share knowledge, exchange ideas, gain insight, and showcase expertise to fully understand the role of natural gas in the global energy landscape. Watch […]
The Energy Efficiency research theme develops highly efficient energy services technologies to support the low cost and low carbon exploration, production and transport of natural gas. Technologies and systems are being explored that, for example, employ waste heat recovery, provide more efficient primary cycles, and improve the efficiency of power generation with carbon capture.
The research seeks ways to reduce fuel consumption, fuel cost and greenhouse gas emissions by advancing efficient technologies designed for this challenging environment, improving the integrated performance of barges and FPSO’s (Floating Production Storage and Offloading).
We are delighted to welcome Professor Caetano Rodrigues Miranda, from University of São Paulo as our speaker for our Summer Term Seminar. Date: 22 May 2018 Time: 16:00 – 17:00 Venue: ACEX 203, Department of Chemical Engineering Campus: South Kensington Campus Abstract Recent advances in nanostructured materials have opened a wide range of new multifunctional […]
The research outputs from the The Methane and Environment Programme (MEP) have already had a positive impact on industry and policy makers in a variety of ways. Here are some examples of where our research and expertise has been used to guide decisions on reducing emissions: MEP played a key role in the development of the ‘Guiding […]
Below are just some key issues being addressed through the Methane and Environment Programme (MEP):- Methane and climate metrics What is methane’s contribution to climate change and the environment? Methane is a very strong climate forcer, much more than CO2, but is relatively short-lived in the atmosphere. A gas’s effect on climate change depends on […]
The Methane and Environment Programme (MEP), was officially launched in May 2018. The programme was set up to undertake follow-on work after the launch of the first White Paper ‘Methane and CO2 emissions from the natural gas supply chain’ and is led by Dr Paul Balcombe and Dr Adam Hawkes, in the Department of Chemical […]
