CCS Short Course 2013

The course will provide a general introduction to CCS technology, including capture and transport of CO2 and introduction to 2nd generation capture technology, and MVA (Monitoring, Verification and Accounting). The course will also present planned and recently developed insights into demonstration projects in UK and worldwide. Recent advances in the understanding of technological challenges and knowledge gaps will be examined. Delegates will also become aware of the predictive tools that are available and will become familiar with the application and use of such tools.

Intended Audience

The course will provide a fundamental understanding of carbon capture and storage (CCS) to engineers, scientists, technical managers and policy makers working in the field of energy. It will be of particular interest to individuals and company representatives involved in strategies for climate change mitigation.
Specific industries that will benefit directly from this course are power utilities, original equipment manufacturers, coal/gas industry, oil and gas companies, as well as small and medium enterprises that provide services to these industries. In addition, it will also benefit representatives from government agencies and regulatory bodies that deal with energy and environment. The material covered and the learning objectives will also benefit researchers and postgraduate students (PGR and PGT) in science, engineering, or policy programs from academic institutions.


The University of Leeds, Faculty of Engineering ran this newly developed, cutting-edge engineering CPD course, for both industry and postgraduate taught students, on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) for the first time in May 2012. The course was part of the CCPilot100+ collaborative project and following subsequent demand the five day course will run again in June 2013.


The Energy Institute has approved University of Leeds – Faculty of Engineering as an Approved Training Provider.
