Manchester receives £750k+ EPSRC research grant for subsurface CO2 storage
Colleagues from The University of Manchester and Durham University have received a £754,000 research grant from EPSRC for subsurface CO2 storage.
The project, entitled Performance and Injectivity of CO2 in Hyper-Saline Aquifers – or PINCH – is in collaboration with Princeton University, the University of Stuttgart, bp, Shell, and Equinor.
It represents an excellent research development in the discipline of subsurface energy engineering, and addresses major challenges faced in geological CO2 storage.
Dr Vahid Niasar of Manchester's Department of Chemical Engineering is Principal Investigator for the PINCH project, which aims to establish fundamental science to develop a novel predictive model and apply it to real field data supported by industries.
