Research interests in:
CO2 capture using CaO-based sorbent. Novel sorbent enhancement strategies, including reactivation of spent sorbent by hydration, doping of natural sorbent and enhancement by steam. Currently affiliated with EU H2020 project LEILAC on capture of process emissions from cement.
Biomass fractionation. Separation of lignocellulosic biomass into hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin, using enhanced organosolv treatment. Previously affiliated with the EU FP7 funded project, BioSonic.
Energy storage through high-temperature thermochemical looping cycles.
