Project Description

This project aims to identify market opportunities for the Carbon Capture Simulation Initiative (CCSI) tools combined with existing gPROMS platform capabilities, including carbon capture and storage (CCS), advanced energy, and cross-sector applications. The research will assess and rank the CCSI tools according to their commercial potential, technical feasibility, and technology readiness level when integrated with gPROMS platform capabilities; develop detailed integration plans and commercialization plans for promising tools, drawing on technical expertise from Process Systems Enterprise (PSE) and the project team, as well as the PSE client base and industrial advisory board structures; and research suitable applications across advanced energy systems and further afield (prototypes will be built during Phase I to evidence and publicize potential).

Project Benefits

Commercialization of the toolkit developed by this consortium will enhance CCSI’s immediate commercial potential when combined with the existing capabilities of gPROMS and gCCS. The following overall goals of expanding gPROMS capabilities will be enhanced: (1) increasing robustness of complex simulations; (2) maintaining state-of-the-art models of promising CCS technologies; and (3) providing an opportunity to accelerate development of advanced energy technologies, as well as contributing to the wider scientific community by moving forward the state-of-the-art in dynamic modelling and optimization of novel processes. Dissemination of the market research (where practical) and demonstration of novel applications across different sectors outside of CCS will help to build the reputation and user base of the CCSI toolset.
