ABSTRACT:

An overview presentation to fuel-related research carried out in the Department of Chemical Engineering of Imperial College. This research aims to address some of the main issues facing energy supply in the fields of power generation and transport fuels. Challenges related to power generation include the need for decreasing carbon dioxide emissions associated with fossil fuel utilisation and introducing renewable energy sources. Regarding transport fuels, due to the decline in the production of light oils there is a need to utilise new sources such as heavy oils and biomass-derived feedstocks. Current research in these fields at Imperial College involving zero-emission gasification processes, the use of combined gasification and fuel cell cycles, and new technologies for upgrading heavy hydrocarbons into transport fuels will be highlighted.

About MARCOS MILLAN:

Dr Marcos Millan graduated as a Chemical Engineer from the University of the Republic of Uruguay in 2001. In 2005, he completed his PhD on “Catalytic Hydrocracking and Characterisation of Heavy Hydrocarbons Liquids” in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College, which he joined as a lecturer in 2006. He is currently a Reader in the same Department and his research interests focus on gasification of solid fuels, production of liquid fuels from biomass pyrolysis, and heavy oil upgrading and characterisation. His current projects include oxyfuel co-gasification of coal and biomass in a fluidised bed; tar abatement in downdraft biomass gasification; and upgrading of heavy oils in supercritical water. He has authored over 60 publications in international journals and supervised 9 PhD and 17 MSc theses.
