Malaysian and Austrian research institutes collaborate on BECCS
  Malaysia, Austrilia

 July 30, 2018

Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) has signed a cooperation agreement with International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA) to work on bio-energy CCS.

The collaboration will include scientists and experts from both parties developing and implementing joint research projects with third party funding, post-graduate student exchanges, information exchange, including access to relevant databases, joint scientific publications and participation of research and academic staffs in seminars and conferences.

ITB had been seeking an international research project as part of a move from a research institute to an entrepreneurial university.

Dr. Mohammad Rachmat Sule, Center Manager of CoE CCS/CCUS said that ITB is currently preparing the first CCS Pilot Project in South East Asia and South Asia, where the CO2 source for the pilot project is obtained from oil and petroleum industries. This pilot project will contribute to reduction of carbon emissions regionally and globally.

However, since IIASA also invites ITB to develop BECCS, this will be very important for Indonesia as one of the forest centers in the world, especially if energy generated from bio-energy can be utilized broadly in the future. “Bio-energy is classified as a type of energy characterized by zero carbon emission. Combined with CCS, bio-energy will be contributor for negative emission”, Rachmat concluded.
