Module content
Lectures:

The purpose of this course is to discuss an important opportunity which we should consider as part of technological response, namely the capture and sequestration of CO2 from large stationary sources. The motivation for developing CO2 capture and sequestration technologies will be discussed and some background information provided, looking additionally at economics of this mitigation option. Options of the reduction of CO2 emissions discussed: the methods of separation of CO2 from combustion gases – the state-of-art and emerging technologies: chemical absorption, physical absorption, adsorption, cryogenic separation, membrane methods; industrial examples of coal-fired plants with CO2 capture; CO2 transport & storage: maturity of technologies; dangers of storage; direct and indirect industrial utilization of carbon dioxide; new technologies of CO2 chemical utilization – emerging & under study.

Seminar classes:

Seminar proceeds in the form of lawsuit: The whole group takes part in proceeding in the following roles: judge; prosecutor team (2-3 student), defence counsel (2-3 students) and jury (the rest of student group).

Two teams (prosecutor team, and defence counsel team debate an topic, which one team will propose and the other will oppose. Each speaker will make a seven-minute speech in the order; 1st prosecutor team, 1st defence counsel team, 2nd prosecutor team, 2nd defence counsel team.
After the first minute of each speech, members of the defence team may request a ‘point of information’ (POI). If the judge accepts they are permitted to ask a question. POI’s are used to pull the speaker up on a weak point, or to argue against something the speaker has said. However, after 6 minutes, no more POIs are permitted. After all debaters have spoken, the debate will be opened to the jury, in which members of the jury may put questions to the teams. After the debate, one speaker from persecutor and defence counsel team (traditionally the first speaker), will summarize for 4 minutes. Afterwards the jury fills a questioner concerning the verdict. The judge summarize the verdict and decide the possible appeal.
Brought to justice:

1. CO2 as climate killer
2. Coal as long term solution for energy production vs. renewables
3. The best technologies for CO2 storage (ECBM, ERG, EOR)
4. Energy storage
5. CO2 industrial use and chemical CO2 sequestration

Method of calculating the final grade:

Grading:
Grading formula: FG=PMWFltest*w*PMGltest + PMWFpssem*PMGpssem
Where:
• FG-final grade
• PMWFltest – Lecture test weighting factor – 0,5
• PMGltest – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to lecture test
• PMWFpssem– Problem solving seminar weighting factor – 0,5
• PMGpssem – Grade of achieved LOs relevant to problem solving seminar

For activity during lectures student may obtain addionally 0.5 grade.
All LO weighting factors associated with part of the module (PM) equal 1.
Grade from colloquium from Term 1 and both re-takes have the same weight.

Seminar is compulsory; only one justified absence may be tolerated.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Additional information:

The overall assessment consist of two steps:
1. Assessment of fulfilling of module learning outcomes and OLOs.
2. Assessment and grading of the quality of students work.
EIT OLOs assessed in the industrial internship:
• Making value judgments and sustainability competencies (EIT OLO 1)

• Creativity skills and competencies (EIT OLO 3)
• Innovation skills and competencies (EIT OLO 4)
• Research skills and competencies (EIT OLO 5)
• Intellectual transforming skills and competencies (EIT OLO 6)
