Simulation and Life CycleAssessment of Post Combustion Carbon Capture Systems
A Chemical Science, Earth Science, Engineering project
Carbon capture technology is poised to play a key role in future strategies to combat climate change. This research project will aim to evaluate the environmental impacts of a simulated
post combustion carbon capture system using life cycle assessment. This will ensure engineers build carbon captire systems with minimal impact on the environment.

What is your motivation for doing a PhD?
I am applied for this PhD because I believe it will equip me with skills and abilities to become a researcher to help improve sustainability within the energy industry, facilitate learning, lead discussions on critical global sustainability issues and generally contribute to the body of knowledge.
Why did you choose your research topic/title
I was drawn to this research because I believe it has the potential of making a significant contribution to strategies aimed at reducing CO2 emissions and help governemnt meet its target set through the 2008 Climate Change Act.

What difference will this research make in your life and the lives of others?
Excessive global CO2 emissions have made it pertinent for us to either reduce our dependence on fossils through increased uptake of renewable energy or develop novel techniques of capturing the CO2. Carbon Capture technologies that can immediately cut carbon emissions while renewable energy technologies becomes mainstream seems to be the most viable option. This research will carry out an assessment of the environmental impacts associated with the carbon capture technologies.It will provide information to engineers to build CCS systems that will have minimum impact on the environment and assist government meet the target set by the 2008 Climate Change Act.
