Description

In Australia, we generate 75% of our electricity using coal. This creates a lot of CO2 emissions, and has led to many concerns about the impact our electricity generation is having on climate change. Dr Paul Feron is looking at different ways to capture CO2 emissions, in an effort to reduce the cost of the capture process. If successful, he will overcome a major obstacle to further developing and deploying the technology. This research was carried out as part of the Office of the Chief Executive (OCE) Science Leader program.
