Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Climate change is known to be dominantly caused by the increased concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2). Over the years, the clathrate hydrate process has demonstrated promising potential for innovative applications, such as natural gas storage, carbon dioxide capture and storage, seawater desalination, and cold energy storage. CO2 hydrate, a solid compound consisting of molecular CO2 encased in crystalline lattices formed by water molecules, is an attractive option for long-term CO2 sequestration.

Methane (CH4) hydrates in oceanic sediments have remained stable for millions of years, serving as a natural analog. Thus, the question arises: can we store CO2 in the form of hydrates in oceanic sediments indefinitely? In this presentation, the state-of-the-art on clathrate hydrate technology pertaining to carbon dioxide storage will be discussed in detail. Compact CO2 storage capacity, high stability, and the use of water as a solvent are key advantages of the hydrate-based CO2 storage system. Additionally, future research and development opportunities, as well as pathways for commercialization, will be explored.

Julie MorganDr Morgan has over 35 years engineering experience, with more than 30 being spent working in the oil and gas business. She realized that she was a convert to flow assurance roughly 20 years ago and has been promoting the subject ever since. She has worked in the UK, Europe, USA, Africa and Asia-Pacific and is now the Chief Flow Assurance Engineer for Woodside Energy Ltd., based in Perth, Western Australia. Julie has a PhD, MEng and MA in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cambridge, UK.
Praveen LingaDr. Praveen Linga is a professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He is a chemical engineer by training. The vision of Linga Lab@NUS, led by Dr. Linga, is to advance hydrate technology as an effective and feasible solution for the critical needs of clean and safe water, cleaner energy, and environmental stewardship addressing UN Sustainable Development Goals 6, 7, and 13. At Linga Lab, the team works on both fundamental and applied aspects of research. Their specific focus is to develop methods and innovate on experimental process design targeted at improving the kinetics of hydrate formation and dissociation.

Dr. Linga has published more than 165 research articles and delivered more than 100 keynote/invited talks and seminars. He has received numerous awards and recognitions, including being named among the World's Most Influential Scientific Minds and Highly Cited Researchers in Engineering by Clarivate Analytics, receiving the SCEJ (Society of Chemical Engineers, Japan) Award for Outstanding Asian Researcher and Engineer in 2019, the NUS Young Researcher Award in 2017, and the Donald W. Davidson Award at ICGH9 in Denver, USA, for outstanding contributions to gas hydrate research in 2017. Dr. Linga serves as an executive editor of Energy & Fuels journal (ACS Publications) and is an invited member of the editorial boards of several engineering journals, including Applied Energy.
