Carbon capture is critical to cost effectively reduce global CO2 emissions, and commercial CCS technology must be available soon. The CCSI Toolset supports and accelerates the development, scale-up and commercialization of CO2 capture technology by enabling more thorough vetting of options, complete understanding how processes will operate at scale under relevant field conditions, and increased understanding how uncertainty affects risk.
The CCSI Toolset, a 2016 R&D 100 award winner, is the sole suite of computational tools and models specifically tailored to help maximize learning during the scale-up process in order to reduce risk. This is critically important since pilot projects represent an expensive, limited opportunity to collect the data necessary to move to commercial scale. By maximizing the learning during such pilot projects, the CCSI Toolset can help reduce the timeline for subsequent commercialization and enable greater investment confidence. This product can also be employed in related industries to enable faster, more cost effective scale up of other new technologies.
Each year for more than 50 years, R&D Magazine has honored the 100 best innovations in research and development. We are currently accepting applications for the 2017 R&D 100 Awards. Innovators with an exceptional product developed between January 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 should apply. Submissions close April 14, 2017
