Professor Maroto-Valer from Heriot-Watt University’s Research Centre Carbon Solutions (RCCS), was named the winner for services to science and technology at the 2019 Scottish Women’s Awards held on Wednesday, 28 August.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) seems to be everywhere at moment – in just the last week, two major reports have come out calling on governments in the UK to act on its delivery. Over the last year, report after report has emphasised the necessity of CCS in tackling climate change, and the urgency of deploying it in industrial clusters around the UK.
Danielle Rowley, Shadow Minister for Climate Justice and Green Jobs, was given a tour of Heriot-Watt University’s Research Centre for Carbon Solutions to see first-hand how it is working at the cutting edge of carbon reduction.
The UK Parliament’s Science and Technology Select Committee has today issued a report, which has highlighted the lack of government policies in place to deliver its net zero carbon target by 2050.
The STRATEGY CCUS project, an international partnership to support the development of low-carbon energy and industry in Southern and Eastern Europe, has launched its dedicated website, which provides a focal point for its activities and outputs.
