Capturing CO2 from emission points to prevent further increase of atmospheric CO2 concentration is one of the most critical global challenges. The aim of this PhD project is to develop the next generation of electrochemical CO2 capture process. In particular, the PhD project will focus on new cell design and electrochemical processes based on ion exchange materials. The expected outcome of the project is a comprehensive understanding of transport phenomena involved in electrochemical CO2 capture processes, including the development of a process model for the selected technologies.
We provide a disciplinary and multidisciplinary research programme aimed at advanced understanding of environmental problems and advanced training of PhD candidates in this field.
