Developing novel solid sorbents for the CO2 capture from flue gas streams

Updated: 1 day ago
Location: Melbourne, VICTORIA

This CSIRO-RMIT co-funded scholarship will address the challenges associated to the development of next generation solid CO2 adsorbent technologies that offer lower cost capture. The purpose of this project is to explore the fundamental science around optimizing novel solid materials for CO2 capture with a particular focus on flue gas streams and the effect of other components in the stream such as NOx and SOx the sorbents. This project will develop a fundamental understanding of the mechanism of NOx and SOx interaction with the solid adsorbents.
