The Newton International Fellowship

Scholarship Background

Carbon Capture and Storage, or CCS, features advanced technologies to reduce climate change consequences. According to the Paris Climate Change Agreement, achieving Carbon neutrality is important. The Newton International Fellowship is now opened to International applicants in Uk to peruse PhD program in Engineering related subjects in UK universities.

It is a crucial technology within the UK government’s Clean Growth Strategy, with a bold plan to create low-carbon industrial clusters to capture 20-30 million tonnes of CO2 annually by 2030. Backed by an initial stage of eight large-scale commercial projects in various industries to become operational by 2030. 

An essential use of Carbon Capture and Storage technologies is to extract carbon dioxide from industrial and combustion gases, like those produced by combined cycle gas turbine power plants, energy from waste plants, and various industrial facilities such as those in cement, steel, chemical, glass, paper, and ceramic industries. 

This project concentrates on current and new instrumentation methods for monitoring CO2 capture solvent technologies. It is essential in industry and is leading the way in being used in business. 

The UK Environmental Agencies now include long-term testing of solvents as a requirement for permitting new post-combustion CO2 capture facilities.
