This year, Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) celebrates 15 years at the forefront of science and engagement aimed at delivering one of the most promising climate technologies: carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Scotland’s carbon capture and storage (CCS) and broader geosciences communities will soon have access to a world-leading facility for imaging in situ experiments in real-life conditions, thanks to a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) grant to the University of Strathclyde..

Every year in early May, tens of thousands of geoscientists descend on Vienna for the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly. Not this year. In March, EGU took the laudable decision to move the conference online, rebranding it EGU: Sharing Geoscience Online 2020 and delivering a programme of activities to foster scientific communication during the coronavirus pandemic.
The UK Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has written to the UK and Scottish governments urging climate policy that delivers “resilient recovery” from the coronavirus crisis while avoiding a “lock-in” of greenhouse gas emissions.
We are now in an evolving situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic. While we deal with immediate concerns – looking after each other and attempting to contain the virus - the threats posed by global warming still require action, so our work on CCS continues.
