Air Products’ green technology


A team led by Air Products has been presented with an award for work addressing impurity removal in carbon dioxide (CO2) waste streams from coal-fired power plants.

The team, which included Imperial College London and Doosan Babcock Energy Ltd, was presented with the Rushlight Carbon Capture and Storage Award 2008, by Professor Gordon MacKerron, of the University of Sussex.
