Carbon Capture: Under Pressure

19 May 2010

Presented by: Dr Euan McCulloch, Engineer R&D, Doosan Babcock Energy Limited

To achieve global targets for reducing CO2 emissions, carbon abated clean coal technologies (CATs) will be required for retrofit to existing power plant and installation on new build power plant. Improved cycle efficiency and biomass co-firing will reduce CO2 emissions per unit of electricity generated, but to
achieve much larger reductions, up to 90%, there will be a need for carbon capture and storage (CCS).

Dr Euan McCulloch joined Doosan Babcock Energy Limited in 2009. His current
role is Project Engineer on the Emissions Reduction Test Facility Upgrade Project for Post Combustion CO2 Capture. Previously, he worked in the Building Services industry where he was involved in Mechanical and Sustainability Engineering. He designed mechanical systems for a variety of buildings and performed energy studies and simulations involving integration of renewable and low to zero carbon technologies for compliance with Building Regulations. Dr McCulloch studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Glasgow, where he was awarded a Faculty scholarship to undertake postgraduate work in the field of High Power Ultrasonics.
