Imperial College will be hosting a tour of their Carbon Capture Pilot Plant for chemical and biochemical engineering students.

Students will receive a guided tour of the Carbon Capture Pilot Plant and ABB Control Room and will have the opportunity to learn more about absorption carbon capture and storage. In addition to the hands-on education for Imperial College students, the Pilot Plant is used by leading industrial organisations for training and research.

Dr. Colin Hale
Colin holds a Masters degree and Doctorate in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London. Prior to his appointment as a Senior Teaching Fellow within the Department he worked as a Research Fellow on multiphase flow for both the upstream and downstream oil and gas industry and also in nuclear thermal hydraulics. He developed pioneering techniques for X-ray tomographic imaging of multiphase flows through pipeline which is now deployed widely as well as a pilot scale test facility for replicating asphaltene fouling processes occurring in petroleum refinery heat exchangers. In 2011 he was the Chemical Engineering Graduate Teaching Assistant Nominee for the Faculty of Engineering Teaching Excellence Award. He currently has a lead role in commissioning and operating the Department's pilot scale absorption plant for carbon capture. icl-carbon-capture-pilot plant

How to get there:
Please enter Imperial College London via the main 'Sherfield' Building. Take the central stairway to the first floor, and exit to the covered walkway. Turn right as you enter the walkway, and continue until you reach the Chemical Engineering Department shortly on your left. (Note; you will pass by the Imperial College London gift shop next door to the department, and this can be used as a good reference point to find the correct entrance). Once inside the department, please follow the signs to find the refreshments in the postgradaute tearoom, and the lecture theatre (to the right of the pilot plant).
