The development and commercial diffusion of low-carbon technologies is more and more urgent in order to contain global warming and climate change. Sotacarbo is holding its seventh annual International Summer School on CCUS and Low Carbon Technologies from the 10th to 14th June 2019.
SCCS welcomes the report by the Scottish Parliament’s Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform (ECCLR) Committee on Scotland’s new Climate Change Bill and is pleased to see its support for carbon capture and storage (CCS). Witnesses who provided evidence to the committee’s inquiry emphasised the need for urgent action on climate change, and this message appears to have been heard loud and clear.
The University of Edinburgh inaugurated its upgraded Carbon Capture laboratory and shared the results with former colleagues and classmates during the School of Engineering’s Alumni Weekend held at the King’s Buildings campus in October.
The Scottish Funding Council (SFC), Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise have each committed £50,000 to support the UK’s largest research, industry and government partnership in carbon capture, use and storage.
Varying the rate at which carbon dioxide (CO₂) is injected into geological storage sites can enhance not just their efficiency but also their ability to store the greenhouse gas securely, according to a new study.
