Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a set of technologies that can reduce CO2 emissions across the economy – from industry, transport, and heat and power generation – preventing them from escalating climate change.
CCS is the only option for deep emission reductions from energy-intensive process industries. When used with sustainable biomass, it can provide “negative emissions” and it has a role in producing clean hydrogen for heat and transport.
SCCS is the largest 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 law and petroleum economics.
