23 Sep 2022CERC to present research at the Harmo21 conference

CERC are presenting recent research studies at the upcoming 21st international Harmo conference (Harmo21), to be held in Aveiro, Portugal, from 27 to 30 September 2022. This conference series is part of an initiative aimed at harmonising dispersion modelling for regulatory purposes.

CERC's managing director, David Carruthers, will present key results from the Defra 2021 Air Quality Model Inter-Comparison Exercise, where CERC was tasked with assessing the capabilities of four air quality modelling systems in terms of their suitability for UK air quality compliance reporting.

Amy Stidworthy will present preliminary results from CERC's work using inverse modelling techniques and measurements to quantify the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on NOx emissions in London.

CERC also contributed to a third presentation at the conference, on FAIRMODE work comparing urban microscale models and methodologies for deriving annual pollutant concentration distribution with very high spatial resolution.

10 Aug 2022Booking is now open for the ADMS User Group Meetings, 16-17 November 2022, Birmingham

You can now book your tickets for the 2022 ADMS User Group Meetings, which will be held at IET Birmingham: Austin Court on 16th and 17th November.

The annual ADMS User Group Meetings are a great opportunity to hear the latest ADMS model news and advice from CERC consultants and model developers, to hear talks by model users about their own applications of the software, and to network with other model users.

Tickets are available to order through Eventbrite until 23:30 on Tuesday 8th November. Organisations with a valid software support contract are entitled to one or more tickets free of charge depending on the type of licence held. The draft programme will be published soon.

13 Jul 2022Amine chemistry modelling in ADMS for carbon capture and storage

CERC are a partner in this ground-breaking SCOPE project (Sustainable OPEration of post-combustion Capture plants) to accelerate large scale CO2-capture projects by providing critical data, methodologies and tools, essential for plant owners and regulators engaged in managing emissions and permitting processes.

A goal is to establish methods and rules for risk assessment of flue gas emissions from CO2-capture facilities. CERC’s role will be to further develop the chemistry model for amine degradation and formation of nitrosamines and nitramines, within the ADMS dispersion model, to allow for multiple sources, multiple amine species and uptake of amines into the aqueous phase. We will also assist Imperial College and other partners in testing and applying the modelling system to amine releases at test sites. This will result in improved prediction of the impacts of amine emissions from CO2-capture solvents for the permitting process.

Other key activities in the project comprise development of knowledge for determining volatile and aerosol-based emissions, including development of technology for minimising emissions, and the creation of tools for online emission measurements. These will be aided by pilot demonstration of emission mitigation technologies at six test sites and implementation of online emission measurement equipment. Another goal is to map the public concerns in diverse countries and regions in terms of the social, environmental, economic, and political impacts of amine-based Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) developments.

This work will be undertaken by an international consortium of key science, technology and policy experts, and stakeholders in Norway, UK, Netherlands, Germany, India and USA. In the UK, the project is led by the Imperial College Department of Earth Sciences and Engineering and funded by BEIS; the overall project leader is SINTEF of Norway.
