Towards a zero-carbon future
SCCS is the largest carbon capture and storage (CCS) research group in the UK, providing a single point of coordination for CCS research, from capture engineering and geoscience to social perceptions and environmental impact through to regulation and economics.
Founded in 2005, SCCS is a partnership of academic and research institutions, including the British Geological Survey, Heriot-Watt University, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Aberdeen, the University of Strathclyde, University of Glasgow and associate partner, the University of St Andrews.
The SCCS Secretariat is in a unique position to act as the conduit between academia, industry and government to accelerate the development of CO2 transportation, capture and subsurface storage.
With access to the expertise of researchers at SCCS Partner Institutes, which spans the full CCS chain, the SCCS Secretariat undertakes strategic research and communications work, and provides impartial advice to industry, the public sector, government agencies and policy makers.
