The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Carbon Capture and Storage and Cleaner Fossil Energy (CCSCFE) aims to bring together the expertise of the Universities of Nottingham, Sheffield, Loughborough, Birmingham; the British Geological Survey; industrial sponsors and cohorts of high-calibre PhD students in order to tackle Global challenges, such as reducing the world’s carbon footprint to mitigate the effects that Climate Change is having on our planet. The Centre aims to minimise these effects by developing and implementing:

  • New flexible power plants that generate electricity more efficiently, using fossil energy with near zero emissions
  • Cost effective, carbon emission reducing technologies
  • Carbon reduction technologies in other industrial sectors, including: iron, steel, cement and solid fuel

The CDT aims to grow the next generation of research leaders and innovators, allowing them to develop a broad economic, societal and contextual awareness, as well as strong technical skills that will enable them to operate within multi-disciplinary team.

Centres for Doctoral Training have already proved to be a great success and the model is popular with students, business and industry. These new centres will give the country the highly trained scientists and engineers it needs and they will be equipped with skills to move on in their careers.

The centre has been successful in attracting significant funding from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) to support our programme.
