SCCS launches ‘Introduction to CCUS’ training course to raise awareness and support the green transition

Three-hour course, available on a bespoke basis, explains CCUS, its role in decarbonisation and the valuable opportunities it could bring

What’s the best way to transport captured CO2 from Scotland’s industrial heartlands to the Aberdeenshire coast? Which sectors should be prioritised for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) and which offshore CO2 storage site should be used first?

What is the cost of zero-carbon hydrogen with CCS?

Mr Daniel Mullen, School of Engineering, University of EdinburghDaniel Mullen

Prof Mathieu Lucquiaud, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Sheffield & School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh

To achieve the balance of sources and sinks of greenhouse gases required by the Paris Climate Change Agreement, industrial carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions must be reduced as closely as possible to zero, and any residual greenhouse gas emissions must be offset by removing excess CO2 from the atmosphere.

The role of hydrogen as a zero-carbon energy vector could be essential in decarbonising key sectors of the economy, both for industrial and domestic use.

Prof Shipton’s research is concerned with the structural and permeability architecture of faults, helping drive understanding of 3D fault structures – a key to answering many questions concerning the evolution of faulty zone structures and the mitigation of fluids through the Earth’s crust. In terms of carbon capture and storage (CCS), her research focuses on fluid flow and containment of CO2 in the subsurface.
