Professor Mohamed Pourkashanian, IFRF General Secretary and Head of Energy 2050 at University of Sheffield, travelled to Geneva last week to deliver a presentation to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN ECE). Professor Pourkashanian was invited to outline recommendations on removing obstacles to carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) to a select group of delegates as part of the UN ECE’s Sustainable Energy Week on 28 September.

His talk; “Accelerating Innovation in CCUS: A Transition to Low Carbon Competitive Economy” covered aspects of his research into CCUS, CHP (combined heat and power) and advanced fossil fuel technologies for power generation.

Professor Pourkashanian also drew on his expertise as Director of UK PACT facilities, detailing results from the UK pilot scale carbon capture national facilities, PACT and provided information on how modelling can be used to successfully design a second generation CCUS technology.
