In the third episode of the BBC’s current Horizons series, Adam Shaw meets SCCS director, Professor Stuart Haszeldine, at the University of Edinburgh to discuss new technologies being developed for carbon capture. They also explore the full-chain process of gathering large volumes of CO₂ from power plants and industrial facilities and transporting it for injection into geological storage sites deep underground.
In the same programme, reporter Anna Holligan travels to the Technology Centre Mongstad, in Norway, where industrial-scale test facilities are being used to trial cutting-edge CO₂ capture technologies. The centre also aims to share knowledge in order to fast-track the commercialisation of CCS worldwide.
The programme can be viewed on Saturday 20 April at 01.30 GMT and 08.30 GMT, and on Sunday 21 April at 14.30 GMT. It is expected to reach around 200 million viewers.
