NZTC Destination Net Zero: Technology Driving Transition Global Summit
Eleven presentations by international research organisations, and a panel discussion, comparing regional technology priorities that will accelerate industries towards net zero. Professor Stuart Haszeldine, SCCS Director, presented at the Tuesday discussion and Dr Philippa Parmiter joined the panel discussion on Wednesday. Click on links above to watch (again).
Net zero and beyond: how carbon removal and reduction technologies champion climate targets
EU Pavilion Blue Zone online event, Mon 1 November, 2021, 17:30-18:30
The CCUS Project Network co-hosted this official COP26 side event with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI) and South Pole. The session, which was moderated by Guloren Turan of the GCCSI, provided an overview of carbon removal and reduction technologies, what they offer and what can be done to accelerate their deployment - both the barriers that need to be addressed and the additional support required. In some countries, such as Norway, the UK and the US, there is considerable government support for such technologies; in others there remain barriers.

UKCCSRC web events
The UK CCS Research Centre announced the return of its webinar series with two special launch events on 3 and 4 November to celebrate COP26.
The web events will be run on a regular basis going forward. All details here: https://ukccsrc.ac.uk/event/ukccsrc-web-events/
Compensating for Greenhouse Gas Emissions: The Importance of Permanence
Wednesday 3rd November, 3-5pm GMT
Chaired by Dr Jen Roberts with Prof Niall MacDowell, Prof Stuart Haszeldine and Prof Jon Gibbins
Hydrogen Production with Carbon Capture and Storage, with IMechE
Thursday 4th November, 1-3pm GMT
Chaired by Prof Jon Gibbins with Christian Bauer, Sean McCoy, Stephen Florence and Jane Durling
UK Universities Innovation Showcase: Decreasing CO2 in the atmosphere: solutions from technology and nature
Tuesday 9 November, 15:30 - 17:00
This event explored the big options available for CO2 decrease, removal and storage by 2050, both as nature-based remedies, and as technology solutions. The panel discussed how both approaches can contribute and why longevity of storage is the key to balance and to reliable offsets.
Hydrogen: A Silver Bullet or a Red Herring?
Wednesday 10 November, 09:00 - 17:00
Morning: Online; Afternoon: Senate Room, University of Glasgow
HyStorPor project coordinator, Dr Katriona Edlmann (University of Edinburgh) will join the panel discussion, Carbon Sequestered H2 and H2 Storage, from 09:05 - 10:35. She will be joined by Angus McCross of dCarbonX, Christina Demski from Cardiff University and a representative from INEOS.
The panel will discuss themes relating to large-scale subsurface storage of hydrogen, current development such as the Acorn CCS and Hydrogen Project in north-east Scotland, emerging areas relating to hydrogen and wind power and public perception of hydrogen and its uses.

Accelerating along the pathway to Net-Zero with large scale carbon dioxide removal and storage
Saturday, 6 Nov, 11:30—12:45
Skomer (Multimedia Studio 2)
Organisers: Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs Inc. & CO2GeoNet
We need to take rapid & drastic action to reduce emissions and tackle climate change. Large scale CO2 removal and storage has a key role to play in achieving net-zero and net-negative emissions. Effective governance is needed to realise the SDGs and ensure a just transition to a sustainable future.
Speakers: High-level experts (IPCC, Norway, Dalberg Africa) and Q&A to engage audience: science on need for removals and storage to reach Net-Zero through cooperation between multiple actors; CCS feasibility & success stories; governance to identify opportunities, risks and incentives to scale-up removals.
Carbon Capture and Storage – Decarbonisation of Industries in Non-Annex 1 and Annex 1 Countries: Decarbonising industries in the UK, US, Canada and Nigeria
Thursday, 11 Nov, 11:30—12:45
Skomer (Multimedia Studio 2)
Organisers: University of Texas at Austin, Bellona Foundation, International CCS Knowledge Centre, CCSA
Speakers: Jennifer Wilcox, US DOE Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary; Victor Richard Osu, Office of the Vice President of Nigeria; Tim Dixon, IEAGHG; Katherine Romanak, University of Texas; Beth Valiaho, ICCSKC; Ruth Herbert CCSA; Jonas Helseth, Bellona
COP26 Green Zone
The COP26 Green Zone will be open to the public from 1-12 November at the Glasgow Science Centre. This provides an arena for youth groups, civil society, academia, artists and business from across the world to explore, debate and celebrate climate action.
