Tackling industry’s carbon emissions: drivers and barriers to CO₂ capture in Scotland

Thursday, 10 October 2013

Scotland’s process and manufacturing industries are key to its prosperity, yet environmental regulation and rising pressure from the EU ETS will increasingly affect investment and operating costs.

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) can form part of a carbon abatement strategy for Scotland’s industry. The economic barriers could be lowered by using existing infrastructure and shared plant, and by forming CO₂ capture clusters with large-scale emitters from both power and industry sectors. These clusters will be essential for the effective deployment of CCS. There may also be first-mover opportunities for existing or innovative products and services in global markets catalysed by a growing CO₂ capture, transport and storage industry.


Workshop 1

Policy, Economics, Regulation and Risk

Thursday 26 September, National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh

A participatory discussion of the economic, regulatory and policy barriers and drivers for CO₂ capture clusters in Scotland. The event will include presentations on the Teesside industrial cluster and techno-economic studies of industrial capture.


Many thanks to Scottish Enterprise for funding and participating in the Workshops for Industrial Emitters, to INEOS for their participation and for hosting the second workshop, and to Chemical Sciences Scotland and IChemE for publicising the events.
