Title: The development of a novel solvent instrumentation system for flexible carbon capture systems
This seminar will provide an overview of carbon capture technologies and focus on the challenges associated with producing research outputs that are valuable in industry. Bill will give a narrative of his PhD journey and provide some advice and lessons learned from the experience and then explain the future plans for commercialisation of his technology.
Dr. Bill Buschle is a post-doctoral researcher within the Institute of Energy Systems interested in industrial instrumentation, process control strategies, and novel plant configurations for post-combustion capture technologies used in electricity generation and industrial processes. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Edinburgh in 2015 and also holds BSc and MSc degrees in Materials Engineering from the University of Cincinnati.
Prior to completing his PhD, Bill served in scientific research and manufacturing product development roles in both the public and private sector as well as gained experience at a technology based venture capital fund.
He is currently developing novel chemical analysis instruments and methods for use at industrial scale post-combustion capture plants through an EPSRC Impact Acceleration project. Bill is also involved in several collaborative and multi-disciplinary RCUK funded projects.
