Co-Ordinator: Dr. John Topper


The Post-Combustion Capture Network was founded in 2000, primarily to share information on use of amines as solvents for capture of CO2, associated with conventional combustion based fossil fuel fired power stations.
It has deveoloped over the past seven years into a friendly specialist club which examines, on an annual basis new developments in post combustion power science and laterly the introduction of pilot plants in different parts of the world; all aimed at promoting the development of demonstration plant for this technological approach.

Registration is by email to the contacts below.
