Johnson A. Jimba PhD Student
School of Engineering & Physical Sciences, Institute of Mechanical, Process & Energy Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, UK
Office: DB 2.65
Johnson has a background in Mechanical Engineering after completing his undergraduate degree from the Federal University of Technology, Minna Nigeria. His undergraduate project focused on a zero-emission vehicle. At this time, he worked with a team at his university to develop an indigenous solar-powered vehicle using a combination of locally sourced and refurbished automobile materials. Johnson completed his MSc in Renewable Energy Engineering from Heriot-Watt University in 2019 with a distinction. His final dissertation focused on the energy requirement for capturing CO2 based on hydrotalcite adsorption technology. Johnson’s findings presented a preliminary understanding of the techno-economic performance in terms of the energy penalty of CO2 capture using hydrotalcite adsorption technology, specifically in cement plants. Currently, Johnson is a research student (PhD) in the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions (RCCS) at Heriot-Watt University. His research study will focus on understanding flow measurements for CCS application in order to limit uncertainties within the EU ETS agreement. Johnson will test different technologies that could be used for industrial-scale CCS metering.
Johnson main research interests are CO2 transportation, renewable energy technology, CO2 capture, low carbon systems, and techno-economic assessment.
