EPSRC: Research Challenges in Carbon Capture for CCS

EPSRC, as part of the RCUK Energy Programme, invites proposals for collaborative research projects to undertake fundamental research to tackle challenges in carbon capture for carbon capture and storage (CCS). An indicative budget of up to £4M is available from EPSRC for this call. Cross-institutional bids are welcome, but there must be a single submission for each application, led by a single principal investigator, with only one proposal form.

The remit of this call is derived from the outputs of a scoping workshop which was held on 15 August 2013, where the following areas have been prioritised in order to complement the current CCS research portfolio:

  • Technology Integration, Intensification, Scale-up and Optimisation
  • Development of Capture Materials

Please consult the EPSRC’s website for further details. Any enquiries related to this call should be directed to the EPSRC Energy Team (01793 444 405), or Research and Income Generation Support at Research & Enterprise.

Closing date: 16:00 on 30 January 2014
