This workshop has been organised by three early career researchers, Reace Edwards, David Cann and Dr. Laura Herraiz, through funding secured from the 2019 ECR Activity Fund, the motivation of which has stemmed from the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge as set out by UK government, which seeks to create at least one low-carbon cluster by 2030 in support of the UK’s wider clean growth agenda.
Keeping this theme in mind, the workshop will focus on the technical requirements of large-scale hydrogen production and CCS technologies alongside their opportunities within industrial clusters, as a method of large-scale decarbonisation, whilst also exploring the social, political and regulatory considerations which follow the deployment of such technologies.
The workshop will be held at Thornton Science Park, a University of Chester campus, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh.
Key highlights include:
Cutting edge presentations from leading companies and organisations concerned with hydrogen production and CCS technologies across an array of disciplines.
Round-table discussions where attendees can engage and network directly with peers as well as representatives from industry, government and academia to build on existing networks.
Research poster competition with a top prize of a £50 Amazon voucher.
Optional tour of Thornton Science Park and overview of one of the UK’s major industrial clusters.
Optional evening networking reception.
This event is free to all ECR and other UKCCSRC members.
