Accelerating the development
of new technologies
The Pilot-scale Advanced CO2 Capture Technology (PACT) facilities are the national specialist research and development facilities for combustion and carbon capture technology research, encompassing advanced fossil-fuel energy, bioenergy and carbon capture and storage/utilisation technologies for power generation and industrial applications.
The PACT facilities bring together a comprehensive range of integrated pilot-scale and accompanying specialist research and analytical facilities, supported by leading academic expertise.
“PACT enables industry and academia to develop and demonstrate their technologies and gain the necessary commercial confidence before committing to large scale trials. This lowers the overall technology risk and enhances chances of commercial success for leading technologies.” - Professor Mohamed Pourkashanian, PACT Director and Professor of Energy Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
