UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre 2017 (UKCCSRC 2017)

Lead Research Organisation: University of Sheffield
Department Name: Mechanical Engineering

Abstract

The renewed UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) provides key fundamental research and coordination activities to help the UK to meet future energy targets. Building on the success of the current UKCCSRC, the new centre grant, starting in 2017, supports a whole-systems based research programme and is an inclusive national hub to set CCS research strategies, coordinate research delivery, promote community cohesion, and act as vehicle for industrial and stakeholder involvement.

The new Centre is led by the University of Sheffield, with partners the British Geological Survey, University of Cambridge, University of Edinburgh, University of Nottingham and Imperial College and additional investigators from Cardiff University, Cranfield University, University of Manchester, University of Strathclyde and University College London. An experienced Director and Centre Manager are supported by three Deputy Director research leads and the wider co-investigator team. Governance is through a Board appointed by the EPSRC.

The Centre operates a Scientific Council to link all UK research activities and an Independent Advisory Panel comprising stakeholders from Government, regulators, industry and trade associations. The CCS Network links together all with an interest in CCS. Comprehensive stakeholder engagement and the whole systems insights from the Centre's research will play a key role in developing the short, medium and long term strategies needed to accelerate the deployment of CCS in the UK.

International research links will be extended through collaborations with other world-leading CCS centres, participation in international initiatives (including CSLF, IEAGHG, GCCSI, UNECE) and an Associate Membership programme for leading researchers. The UKCCSRC will lead on coordinating international CCS strategy and activities, raising the UK's profile and ability to compete internationally.

Postgraduate training and Early Career Researcher support are delivered in close partnership with the CCS CDT at Nottingham. The new centre also supports data and knowledge transfer and promotes shared facilities.

The core research programme has three linked themes: storage, capture and systems. On storage, the recent Oxburgh Report highlighted work on residual storage uncertainties and transfer of long-term liability. Understanding of pressure increase and efficient use of reservoir pore-space are cross-cutting UK research priorities. Research topics include pressure migration and plume migration within storage reservoirs with impacts for geomechanical security, plume stability and site monitorability.

The capture theme focuses on next generation CO2 capture technologies and processes including high and low temperature solids-based cycles and links closely to the systems work. Detailed modelling of each process investigated together with results from other work on BECCS (using the PACT facilities), integrated electricity and hydrogen production from natural gas and supercritical CO2 cycles is used to produce data for integration into overall UK systems studies.

Work on UK-wide systems includes linking demand for heat and power, energy markets, industrial demand, CO2 transport infrastructure, and CO2 storage and greenhouse gas removal technologies (GGRs, particularly BECCS). The overall objective is to provide inputs into existing UK-wide energy system modelling and Integrated Assessment Models. We also examine 'social license to operate' for fossil-fired CCS as well as BECCS.

Building on the core research programme and a supplementary £1.5M flexible funds for open research calls, the Centre will act as a mechanism for the research community to coordinate applications for additional funding for fundamental research from the Research Councils and other sources. The Centre will also support initiatives to take the outputs of research forward in collaboration with applied research funding agencies and industry.

Planned Impact

UKCCSRC 2017 impacts deliver economic and societal benefits in many ways:

Development of Improved Products and Services: CCS has the potential to significantly reduce the costs of decarbonising power generation, industrial processes, and the provision of low-carbon heat. In the short to medium term, our core research on capture and storage technology can contribute to improvements in CCS sub-systems that reduce both capital and operational costs. In the longer term novel technologies, such as the solids-based capture processes we are researching, are required to deliver deeper emissions cuts at the same cost, similar emission reductions at less cost, or both. Achieving these aims would support the establishment of a UK-based CCS industry; there may also be significant opportunities for export markets.

Policy Effectiveness: The CCS industry remains nascent in the UK primarily because of repeated failures over the last decade to conclude deployment initiatives. An underlying concern in these failures is the quality of evidence and analysis upon which the initiatives and their benefits have been assessed. One of the main themes of the UKCCSRC 2017 core research programme is therefore the development of improved models of CCS systems, which can be integrated with both top-down and bottom-up economic models used by key decision makers such as BEIS and HM Treasury.

Quality of Life: As noted by, for example, the Committee on Climate Change, wide scale deployment of CCS will result in lower energy costs and retention of (and possibly growth in) jobs within the UK's energy-intensive industry sectors. If CCS is combined with hydrogen production, domestic heating can be converted away from natural gas, which is one of the most difficult sectors to decarbonise and CCS on power will facilitate a low-carbon electricity system that would allow for greater penetration of electric vehicles that would lead to significant improvement in local air quality. Given the higher costs that economy-wide decarbonisation would impose on industry and consumers, our research on reducing costs of CCS (and on demonstrating the value of CCS) would be essential to any future roll out of CCS.

International Development: Following the Paris Agreement, both specific technology developments and more general knowledge about CCS, generated within the UK, should be made accessible to developing countries in order that they too can reap the benefits from CCS deployment. In a number of cases know-how transfer to the UK is also crucial. UKCCSRC 2017 will therefore continue to grow its programme of international networking and research project activities in order to facilitate such impacts.

Skills and Capacity Development : In order to support all of the above it is necessary for a sufficiently large and skilled workforce to exist. It must also exist at all the right levels and at the right times. UKCCSRC 2017 will continue its successful programme of human capital development activities, addressing the development needs of doctoral students, and post-doctoral researchers, as well as supporting early career academic staff and providing roles to develop tomorrow's academic leaders.

Facilities development: Capture: The UKCCSRC-PACT facilities provides a world-class open-access pilot scale test facility and highly specialized support staff to accelerate the commercialization of advanced technologies.
Facilities development: Storage: Parallel work on storage pilot injection facilities will be undertaken, to develop the first UK facility to calibrate injection mode, or test new equipment. It is intended that this will contribute to a proposal to RCUK STFC for a UK pilot injection site.

Description The UKCCSRC's strategic mission is to:

Help to set new targets for CCS in the UK and globally and then support delivery

An effective role for CCS: The overall goal for the next phase of the UKCCSRC is to help ensure
that CCS will play an effective role in reducing net CO2 emissions while securing affordable and
controllable electricity supplies, low carbon heat and competitive industries for the UK.

1. Lower costs and integration: UK energy stakeholders and CCS specialists have identified
that cost reductions and the integration of CCS technologies and infrastructure into energy
systems, industry and the wider economy are key deliverables.

2. Benefits of CCS in energy and economic systems: The UKCCSRC will make significant
contributions to informing policy and planning decisions, by government and by research
funders, industry and other stakeholders. The Paris commitment to net zero emissions means
many new challenges, including greenhouse gas removal from air, must now be addressed.

3. Capacity to support delivery: The UKCCSRC will also ensure that an effective UK CCS
community of researchers, practitioners and other stakeholders continues to develop,
addressing research issues as they arise and growing the capacity, knowledge and expertise
that will be needed to deliver societal benefits successfully to 2050 and beyond.

4. Cohesion, strategy, coordination, collaboration: The UKCCSRC will be a focal point for
community cohesion and networking, set CCS research strategies (in line with government
policy and with other energy research areas), coordinate CCS research, nationally and
internationally, and be a vehicle for industrial and other stakeholder practitioner involvement.

And, for the organisation itself: Be an indispensable knowledge partner for CCS researchers
and developers, both in the UK and globally, for all CCS applications, including power,
manufacturing, hydrogen production, GHG removal and CO2 transport and storage systems.

The excellence of the UK research base is internationally recognised, with many of our 300+ academic members collaborating with CCS organisations across the world. In the last ten years the Centre has achieved many milestones and become a vital link with industry, aligning CCS research with business needs to secure an attainable economic future for the technology and supporting the development of the CCS industrial clusters. UKCCSRC: Grows and supports the UK CCS community: with a membership of 1600, and two conferences a year, we bring together the community to aid collaboration and knowledge sharing. Enables research by funding 51 flexible funded projects (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/research/flexible-funding/flexible-funding-2021/, https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/research/flexible-funding/flexible-funding-2020/, https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/research/flexible-funding/flexible-funding-call-2018/, https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/research-2012-2017/) to date across the spectrum of CCS research, we support the drive towards an affordable, low carbon future for the UK, as well as a core research programme (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/research/core-research-projects/) Collaborates internationally with six memorandums of understanding signed across the globe and numerous international collaborations, the UKCCSRC is an integral part of the UK remaining a recognised world leader in CCS technology. Works with industry by making test facilities available for over 70 industrial organisations, and hosting joint academic and industry workshops (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/ukccsrc-workshops/), we support the commercial deployment of CCS. The UKCCSRC has also been involved with and published two feed studies (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/open-access-carbon-capture-and-storage-at-karsto-norway/ and https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/open-access-sherman-feed/). Engages and informs external stakeholders by providing written and oral evidence to Government and Parliamentary committees and working groups, the UKCCSRC informs policy makers on how CCS contributes to meeting the UK's climate change obligations. The UKCCSRC also hosted a dedicated series of 18 webinars on CCUS for Net Zero seminars (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/ccus-for-net-zero-seminars-resources/) for the government employees and regulators. This has also involved activities with the UK Environmental Regulators in identifying the Best Available Techniques (BAT) for CCS-related technologies (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/best-available-technology-bat-information-for-ccs/). Fosters tomorrow's leaders by funding travel for development opportunities, and providing training, we ensure early career researchers have the skills and networks to keep the UK at the forefront of CCS development. The UKCCSRC have a comprehensive ECR programme including Awaydays, ECR specific funding calls and secondments (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/early-career-researchers/). Between 2017-2022 the UKCCSRC has supported 10 ECRs through it's ECR Collaboration Fund (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/ecr-collaboration-fund/), 5 ECRs to run their own events through the ECR Activity Fund (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/ecr-activity-fund/), supported over 200 ECRs to attend in person CCS conferences and opportunities through the ECR Meeting Fund (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/ecr-meeting-fund/), supported 12 ECRs to attend CCS pilot plant training (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/ecr-terc-training/) and established an ECR working group (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/early-career-researchers/) to help steer the ECR programme. Creates an inclusive and accessible environment by moving the UKCCSRC conferences to an online web series the UKCCSRC has increased their reach from around 150 in attendance at a conference to over 700 delegates registered to receive details of the weekly web series. During 2017-2022 the UKCCSRC hosted over 90 webinars for the community. During COVID these evolved into a length and time of day that was more accessible for parents who are both home schooling as well as avoiding any clashes with the school 'pick-up'. This platform has been used to showcase not only UKCCSRC research but the international UK and wider net-zero lectures and discussions (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/materials-events/). The UKCCSRC web series is now an ongoing web series with monthly webinars (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/web-events/) The UKCCSRC conferences take place twice a year and now include a hybrid element to increase the accessibility of the event along with an ongoing monthly web series (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/web-events/). The findings have also been used to inform government employees through a series of CCUS for Net Zero seminars (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/ccus-for-net-zero-seminars-resources/) The UKCCSRC's work will continue with the recently awarded UKCCSRC Network+ (EP/W002841/1) (https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/announcing-our-next-funding-phase-the-ukccsrc-network/) which includes a flexible funded programme and a comprehensive ECR programme.

Title Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage systems analysis through cognitive mapping - elicitation process 
Description Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) projects are complex systems due to their multistakeholder and multisectoral nature. Therefore, We consider it crucial to propose a holistic approach to evaluate CCUS systems by using participatory processes to capture the complexity between technical, environmental and social structures interaction. We can achieve this by building cognitive maps, which represent people's knowledge and perceptions of CCUS projects. In CCUS systems, we deal with complex problems involving many parties and conditions without a unique or suitable solution for projects implementation. Albeit many components interact in the projects, we can select the most representative to represent the system. This research seeks to collect various cognitive maps from different stakeholders, which will be integrated later to analyse how physical-technical components interact with socio-political ones.

Title UKCCSRC 2020: Cucurbit[5]uril-Incorporated Photocatalytic Membrane for Carbon Capture and Utilisation (IPM4CCU) 
Description The dataset contains experimental data of the preparation of a photocatalytic membrane and its application in CO2 capture and utilization. The experiments were carried out in the Tang's and Lan's groups at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University College London during June-November 2020. Specifically, the data shows the preparation of cucurbit[6]uril and copper oxide which were empolyerd to prepare the photocatalytic membrane together with functional polymers. Preliminary results of the photocatalytic membrane for CO2 capture and utilization were also included. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2020 
Provided To Others? No  
Impact The overall aim of the project - This project's target is to produce a new type of CO2 adsorbent membrane CB[5] and more importantly to convert the waste CO2 to valuable chemicals/fuels by a photocatalytic membrane reactor. CB[5], a new type of polymer, has an uptake capacity of 26 mL g-1 for CO2, comparable to MOFs, while much higher than that of the uptake capacity for N2, O2 and CO, thus highly selective for CO2 adsorption. Moreover, the carbonyl groups at the portal of CB[5] allow the formation of complexes with cations such as Co2+, Ni2+, Cu2+, Pb2+, Zn2+,Cd2+, Cr2+ and Fe2+, leading to potential catalytic sites for captured CO2 to be in-situ converted to valuable chemicals. In addition, CB[5] are stable in the presence of water. The project aims not only to synthesise a CB[5]-incorporated membrane for CCS but also to embed photocatalysts (eg. Cu2O, C3N4) into the CB[5]-incorporated membranes for carbon capture and utilisation (CCU). Thus a photocatalytic membrane reactor will be generated and investigated in the project for CO2 conversion to high value chemicals.

This comprises £10,000 UK CCS RC funding which has enabled leverage of £45,074 NERC (now UKRI) National Capability funding. The UK CCS RC funding for 2018 and following years supports ongoing user access and user support to CO2Stored. The NERC funding comprises £39,058 for development and update of the underlying geoscience data and at least £6,016 for updated web delivery and user licensing, database improvements and GDPR compliance. Additional support for integration and linking of CO2Stored into a European online CO2 storage atlas is being sought via the EC SET-plan Action 9, proposed for the period 2018 to 2020.
Collaborator Contribution CO2Stored total funding for 2017 was £183, 972. It was the final year of the development and improvement programme, under governance agreed with ETI, from 2013 to 2017. The Crown Estate support was £86,986, match-funded by NERC national capability funding to sum to £173, 972, with additional UK CCS RC funding of £10,000 to respond to advice from stakeholders. The UK CCS RC support established and implemented the 'data and interpretation and maturity' classification requested by Stakeholders which was not included within the Crown Estate programme.
Impact Since transfer of ownership of CO2Stored from ETI to BGS we have streamlined and very significantly reduced the cost of licensing and governance that was previously required for CO2Stored. The UK CCS RC funding supports continuing user access to CO2Stored via mailbox requests and enquiries, set up of user licences and ongoing website hosting/maintenance. The UK CCS RC support has enabled leverage of substantial National Capability funding which is now more and increasingly tightly constrained.

This derived in an expression of interest for collaboration with the International Centre of Excellence of Sustainability Resources Management (ICE-SRM) for Mexico and Latin America of the UNECE. This Centre was recently created and has now agreed to collaborate with the LANCIS and JM was invited to collaborate in the CCS team in the Centre.
Collaborator Contribution JM received training on tools for transdisciplinary research, modelling of complex systems for Sustainability Sciences, and Life Cycle Analysis. Furthermore, JM worked together with a group of researchers and programmers of the LANCIS in the conceptualisation of a methodology that allow them to improve the understanding about CCS systems using a holistic approach and methods from Sustainability and Computing Sciences. The partners exchanged data and methodologies that can be used for network analysis and/or simulation of CCS systems. All the computing requirements were provided by the LANCIS.
Impact The Mexican Platform of Carbon Capture and Storage reported also in the engagement form. It is the first platform in Mexico and Latina America dedicated to CCS with a particular focus on Mexico.

Results and Impact This activity was a day-long event which was split into two presentation sessions and two workshop activities. Included in this event was a poster competition with posters judged by selected industrialists and academics. The poster competition winner was announced by the president of the IChemE.

In terms of presenters, six speakers delivered presentations on the workshop topics including: Adrian Finn (Costain), John Egan (Progressive Energy), Professor Joe Howe (University of Chester), Dr. Clair Gough, Luke Warren (CCSa) and Paul Henderson (BEIS).

In the workshop activities, attendees were asked to identify potential barriers in the hydrogen and CCS supply chain. This included technical, political, regulatory and social factors. Afterward, attendees were asked to identify future drivers for change and rank these by priority.

The purpose of this workshop was to develop ECR's understanding of the hydrogen and CCS supply chain to align with government's ambition to achieve one net-zero carbon industrial cluster by 2040.
Approximately 30 attendees visited Thornton Science Park for this workshop. This activity sparked conversation around the barriers faced in establishing a hydrogen and CCS network in industrial clusters. As well as, identifying future drivers for change.

The ECR members who were awarded funding were responsible for organising the event, managing the event throughout the day, chairing presentation sessions and facilitating workshop discussions.

The event received local media coverage and two ECR members (Reace Edwards and David Cann) were asked to speak on BBC Mersey radio to discuss it. Additionally, the event was publicised through various social media channels by UKCCSRC and the University of Chester.

Primary Audience Industry/Business
Results and Impact Daniel Scamman (DS) introduced work currently being undertaken at UCL on the new UK TIMES model (UKTM) to the CCSA Technical Working Group on 9 Feb 2017 in London. UKTM is being used by the UK Government as input to the forthcoming Emissions Reduction Plan. DS presented slides which provided an overview of hydrogen and CCS modelling within UK TIMES, as well as some of the initial model results and the next steps for the work. Initial results found the costs to the energy system were minimised where CCS is included, further reduced through the addition of BECCS, and in the least cost scenario also including hydrogen. Conversely an energy system fully reliant on electrification was found to produce significantly higher costs. DS advertised that the latest hydrogen modelling outputs will be included in the 3 White Papers by Hydrogen London, due to be launched on the 17th March 2017. Following the presentation discussion focused on specific inputs to the model and how it will be used by the UK Government, with contributions from a representative from the BEIS Central Modelling Team
