 Long-term research activities in the area of advanced CO2 CaptureTechnologies for Clean Coal Energy Generation



Project acronym:CO2TRIP

ID contest: FP7-PEOPLE-2013-IRSES

Project Coordinator: Politechnika Częstochowska, Instytut ZaawansowanychTechnologii Energetycznych, prof. ndzw.dr.hab.inż. Izabela Majchrzak-Kucęba

Project start date:1 January 2014

Date of completion of the project: 31 December 2017

Duration of the project: 48 months (4 years) 



    Coal combustion is the main source for producing energy. Nowadays, the reduction of CO2 emission from energy sector is the most important field of research. Refinement and development of current technology are the main activities in this proposal. Transfer of knowledge and experience in the area of innovation CO2 capture technology is the main goal of the Proposal. Those activities allow to reduction CO2 into atmosphere. Leading organizations in the fields of innovative research on CO2 capture also oxy – fuel combustion were invited to participate in CO2TRIP project. Activities shall be conducted by staff exchange, joint research, seminars, workshops and lectures. Joint research take into account technology as follows: advanced adsorbent adsorption, oxy – fuel combustion and chemical looping combustion.  

   The CO2TRIP project will last four years and it will be coordinated by the Czestochowa University of Technology, Poland with participation universities from Germany, United Kingdom, China, Japan, USA, and Australia. The duration of this project will be four years. The proposal will provide the necessary skills development through joint work both on a laboratory and pilot scale. Common interests all partners of CO2TRIP Consortium in advanced energy generation technologies with CO2 capture are very complementary.

   The main aims is to strengthen research partnerships through staff exchanges and networking activities between Partners.  In addition to achieving scientific results in a particular area, the CO2TRIP project is above all expected to create additional benefits for the participants in terms of transfer of knowledge and to generate a basis for sustainable cooperation. The activities within the proposed Project is divided into 6 Work Packages. Those Work Packages are related and complementary.

   The proposed project will help to increase the transfer of knowledge between Partners as well as allow to build the basis for long-term cooperation.
