How will Carbon Capture and Storage support climate action in Scotland and the UK, and what progress is being made on the technology that will help Europe meet its targets too? Join us at the CCS sessions at All-Energy to find out more, and meet leading CCS players during our networking break. More details
ALIGN-CCUS: webinar 2
CCUS as an element for large-scale energy storage and conversion
Find out more about an exciting pilot project that could drive an energy revolution in transport – creating fuel from CO2 in one fully integrated system.
The project's first webinar will introduce Acorn as a “look back” from the year 2025. Speakers will showcase results from the ACT Acorn study, focusing on the growth of an integrated CCS network from an initial capture plant at St Fergus, which now handles volumes of CO2 from a variety of sources. Wednesday 20 June, 11am - 12pm BST Register now
Aberdeen spin-out makes XPRIZE competition final
Carbon Capture Machine (UK) Ltd, a University of Aberdeen spin-out company, is the sole European team to reach the finals of the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE, a major international competition that incentivises the development of breakthrough carbon conversion technologies to reduce global CO2 emissions.
A new study by SCCS researchers at the University of Edinburgh suggests that the Paris Agreement’s climate targets can be met rapidly if fossil fuel producers pay for storage of carbon emissions resulting from their products. Read more
‘Damp sponge’ trapping mechanism could unlock vast CO2 storage for China
A new approach by Scottish and Chinese scientists to trapping CO₂ deep underground could unlock the potentially huge storage capacity of China’s Pearl River Mouth Basin. Read more
TEDx talk: Halting Climate Change with Certificates of Carbon Storage
Prof Stuart Haszeldine, SCCS Director, discusses climate change, the world’s failure so far to deal with carbon emissions effectively and how we can create success out of failure through the mechanism of "producer pays". Watch video
CCS has essential role in Scotland’s climate action
We recently welcomed the Scottish Government's publication of its Climate Change Plan, setting out specific policies and proposals for meeting Scotland’s climate change targets, and placing Scotland on a global leadership path. Read our statement
Education and training
World’s first MOOC on climate change and CCS
In March, over 1000 MOOCers took part in The University of Edinburgh's free online course on climate change and CCS. The course explained CCS technology in the context of climate change, global energy and economics, our use of fossil fuels and global climate policy. You can still access content, and we'll let you know when it runs again. Check out landing page
