2014 PhD Excursion United Kingdom

2014 PhD Excursion United Kingdom

2014 PhD Excursion United Kingdom

After last year's excursion to North-Holland, this year we visited the United Kingdom from 23-25 March 2014 as part of CATO2 PhD network building in cooperation with the UK CCS Research Center (UKCCSRC).

The excursion started on the ferry from Rotterdam to Hull on Sunday 23 March 19.00 hours. We arrived in England on Monday 24 March at 8 o' clock and a bus was waiting for us. We visited one of the power plants of DRAX and we were impressed by the scale of the power plant. Drax is transforming itself into a predominantly biomass-fuelled generator through burning sustainable biomass in place of coal.

After lunch we visited the research facility of the UKCCSRC at PACT facilities. PACT brings together a comprehensive range of integrated pilot-scale and accompanying specialist research and analytical facilities, supported by leading academic expertise.

In the evening, we met the Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from the UK CCS Research Center for dinner. We played an ice-breaker game, the XXL CarbonFuture game. Usefull contacts were made.

Tuesday 25 March was reserved for presentations by CATO PhD-students and UK CCSRC ECRs. For all presentations look here.
