Students view CO2CRC’s world renowned research facility

On Wednesday 1 May students from Monash University and the University of Melbourne took a day trip to CO2CRC’s Otway National Research Facility. Located in south-west Victoria, the facility is one of the largest carbon dioxide storage demonstration projects in the world.

The students were given a guided tour of the facility and learnt about CCS’s role in a low emissions future.

The students were particularly interested in the facility’s state-of-the-art experimental capture platform.  CO2CRC’s process engineer, Saw Hong Lim, explained how it was designed to test adsorbent and membrane capture materials.

CO2CRC’s community liaison officer, Shelly Murrell, told the students about CO2CRC’s next research phase, which will test technologies located in the sub-surface for monitoring stored CO2.
