Mass spectrometers, LED light transmitters, and a washing machine were all part of the mix when local MSP Daniel Johnson visited the University of Edinburgh to meet SCCS researchers at the cutting edge of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.
In late June, with the summer exam marking just about completed, Stuart Gilfillan, Gareth Johnson and Stuart Haszeldine from the Edinburgh Geoenergy and Scottish Carbon & Capture groups at the University of Edinburgh escaped the relative heat of Edinburgh to visit the somewhat cooler and definitely wetter CarbFix 2 site in Iceland.
Today the CCUS Cost Challenge Task Force has made a series of recommendations on how government and industry should work together to deploy carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) in the UK in the 2030s.
Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage strongly welcomes today’s report by the UK’s Committee on Climate Change (CCC), which urges swift action to support the delivery of carbon capture and storage (CCS) across the whole UK economy by 2026.
The future holds many challenges for Europe’s industries, including the need to shift to low-carbon ways of working, and producing their goods. This new video by the ALIGN-CCUS project goes behind the scenes at the PACT facilities, at the University of Sheffield, to find out more about cutting-edge research into scaling up carbon capture technologies while bringing down cost: one of the ALIGN-CCUS project’s key goals.
