Pilot Plant

The aim of the carbon capture pilot plant project is for students to acquire a practical, 'hands-on', experience of many of the key aspects of design and operation of a large scale process plant controlled using a full industrial control system.

Students (maximum group of 16) receive hands-on instruction on safety, carbon capture theory, reading piping and installation diagrams (PIDs), how to start up, shut down, run efficiently and safely a typical chemical engineering plant using our state-of-the-art carbon capture pilot plant. This will give the students a real world industrial training experience which is uniquely available here at Imperial.
