Hydrogen motion in zeolite-confined water under gas flow

, &
The motion of solvated protons (H+) in in water is fundamental to the concept of acidity, but remains an active area of research. We wish to investigate zeolites as a solid acid catalyst for the conversion of methane to methanol with water. To understand this partial oxidation reaction with water, we must first understand the interaction of pure water with the protons in the zeolite. This proposal aims to investigate the hydrogen motions within water...

Dynamics study on H2 and D2 separation in a porous solid

, , , , , , , , , &
Neutron scattering is one of the few experimental techniques that can directly determine the mechanism of hydrogen (H2) and deuterium (D2) adsorption in microporous solids. Therefore, it is an ideal technique to study porous materials used for H2/D2 separations in-situ under high-pressure environments1. In collaboration with Professor Andy Coopers group at the University of Liverpool we have been investigating a novel porous organic cage (POC), 6MT-RCC3 (Figure 1), which shows remarkable potential for H2 and...

Natural Hazards Phase 3: Volume 12: Hazard Combinations

The Natural Hazards Review project will develop a framework and best practice approach to characterise natural hazards and seek to improve methodologies where current approaches are inefficient. This is to improve energy system infrastructure design and the project is intended to share knowledge of natural hazards across sectors.The project will be completed in three stages. Phase one will focus on a gap analysis. Phase two will look at developing a series of improved methodologies from...

Hydrogen Turbines Follow On - Scenario 10 Results Spreadsheet - GB Capacity Mix Optimisation - Results

S. Mavropoulos
Various scenarios for the UK’s power fleet composition in 2030 and 2040 were developed. Dispatch modelling in Plexos was carried out by Baringa on these fleets to investigate the role gas fed plants might have in future. This includes the ability to study load factors, stop/starts etc, and together with concomitant pricing, provide a picture of investment remuneration.The effect of key drivers is studied e.g. gas price.

The purpose of this spreadsheet is to provide:The pathway...

Characterisation of Feedstocks - Characterisation of biomass feedstocks database

H. McKay
The Characterisation of Feedstocks project provides an understanding of UK produced 2nd generation energy biomass properties, how these vary and what causes this variability. In this project, several types of UK-grown biomass, produced under varying conditions, were sampled. The biomass sampled included Miscanthus, Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) and Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) Willow. The samples were tested to an agreed schedule in an accredited laboratory. The results were analysed against the planting, growing, harvesting and...

Refining Estimates of Land for Biomass - RELB: Job implications of establishing a bioenergy market

S. Wynn, R. Carter, C. Turner & C. Huxley
ETI analysis suggests that the UK needs to plant 30 kha/yr of bioenergy crops and Short Rotation Forestry (SRF) until the mid-2050’s to deliver the required level of feedstock to meet the UK’s 2050 greenhouse gas targets cost-effectively. Of the area of bioenergy crops planted, this study assumes that 50% of the area will be SRF, 25% SRC and 25% Miscanthus.The significant increase in bioenergy crop area planted will require an increase in the number...

Biomass to Power with CCS - ETI Executive Summary

TESBiC: Techno-Economic Study of Biomass to power with CCS. Bioenergy production coupled with CCS could provide up to 10% of UK energy in the 2050s and deliver substantial net negative emissions. At the time of writing (2012) Bioenergy with CCS was thought to have the potential to remove 50 - 100 Mt of CO2 from the atmosphere each year by 2050. More recent analysis, published in the Bioenergy Insights papers, suggests that this figure is...

This report, the final deliverable from the project, contains both the Development and Deployment Opportunity Assessment and the Technology and Demonstration Benefits Assessment.The report covers all eight technologies selected for detailed investigation. Dedicated biomass chemical looping combustion and to a lesser extent cofired carbonate looping came out as two of the more attractive biomass CCS technology combinations for possible development and demonstration in the UK. This...

Condition Monitoring: Final Report on an Holistic Approach to Wind Turbine Monitoring

D.N. Futter, R. Chevalier, D. Gilbert, E. Muguelanez, M. Whittle & D. Infield
The Condition Monitoring project was led by Moog Insensys and included Romax, SeeByte, the University of Strathclyde, E.ON and EDF. It looked towards developing an intelligent integrated, predictive, condition monitoring package for wind turbines, which improves reliability, increasing availability by reducing downtime by up to 20% and leading to potential savings of 6,000 per turbine.

The InFLOW project was initiated to develop an holistic, predictive condition monitoring system. This was seen to be distinct from conventional...

Five promising consumer business models to transform low carbon heating and well-being in the home - Engagement Pack.

The case for heat decarbonisation is widely acknowledged, with studies showing that it is more cost effective to tackle CO2 emissions from buildings than cutting more deeply in other sectors.The real challenge is establishing new heating solutions that substantially remove natural gas use from homes whilst making the solutions financially viable and attractive to consumers. Around 20,000 homes each week will need new heating system installations between 2025 and 2050 to meet decarbonisation targets; a...
