Carbon Capture and Storage from Industry – Workshop Series

Carbon Capture and Storage from UK Industries

The UK CCS Research Centre in collaboration with BIS (Department for Business, Innovation and Skills) and DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change) organised a series of meetings during October-December 2012 examining the current status of CCS technologies that would be applicable to UK industries, and further technology developments that might be required before commercial deployment.

The discussions at these workshops form one of the inputs to a broader assessment of how BIS can assist UK industry to compete effectively while also reducing CO2  emissions. 

Outputs from the workshops are presentations describing CCS applications, expert assessments of the underpinning knowledge for CCS implementation, and potential routes to deployment. This material is available below, with additional supporting material, and as a section of the UKCCSRC RAPID Handbook.

The workshops brought together industry, government, academic and other stakeholders for detailed discussions on specific industry CCS applications.

The draft Summary Report for the industry workshop series can be downloaded here.
