Net zero and beyond: how carbon removal and reduction technologies champion climate targets

EU Pavilion Blue Zone online event, Mon 1 November, 2021, 17:30-18:30

The CCUS Project Network is co-hosting this official COP26 side event with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI) and South Pole. The session, which will be moderated by Guloren Turan of the GCCSI, provides an overview of carbon removal and reduction technologies, what they offer and what can be done to accelerate their deployment - both the barriers that need to be addressed and the additional support required. In some countries, such as Norway, the UK and the US, there is considerable government support for such technologies; in others there remain barriers.



UK Universities Innovation Showcase: Decreasing CO2 in the atmosphere: solutions from technology and nature

Tuesday 9 November, 15:30 - 17:00

This event will explore the big options available for CO2 decrease, removal and storage by 2050, both as nature-based remedies, and as technology solutions. How can these both contribute and why is longevity of storage the key to balance, and to reliable offsets?


Panel Members:

  • Professor Mercedes Maroto-Valer, Heriot-Watt University -Chair- Champion and Director, UK Industrial Decarbonisation Research and Innovation Centre (IDRIC)
  • Professor Stuart Haszeldine, University of Edinburgh, SCCS Director and Professor of Carbon Capture & Storage
  • Professor Pete Smith, University of Aberdeen, Professor of Soils & Global Change
  • Jeremy Leggett, NbS developer and rewilding two Scottish Estates
  • Kirsty Lynch, Pale Blue Dot Energy Limited, Scotland’s Acorn project


COP26 Green Zone
