This blog was produced by Kranthi Jonnalagadda Research frontiers in CO 2 shipping and storage What happens when you meet a nerd? Some of the energetic passion rubs onto you! That’s what happened to us when we were sitting around the table In the UKCCSRC conference at the University of Sheffield. We were discussing CO 2 storage and shipping combinations. The session was led by a scientist from the industry. While the underlying current throughout the conference was how was to commercialise carbon capture technology and will industry accept carbon capture technology, here at the table were industry stalwarts who had seen it all, and done it all! It couldn’t have been a better setting to learn about current state...Read more
This blog was produced by Manohar gudiyor veerabhadrappa UKCCSRC programme conference was a different experience for me compared to the past conferences. Before this, I was involved with technical discussions related to CCS (mainly materials design and development) but never been part of or had little knowledge on the policy and implementation part of CCS. This conference has really helped me understand the complexity and uncertainties involved in successful implementation of CCS in the UK or elsewhere. I realised, both the government and industry have commitments and challenges to overcome for successful implementation of CCS technology. As part of the discussion, the entire gathering was divided into groups and I was part of the CO 2 utilisation theme. The group...Read more
This blog was produced by Khalil AL Hanashi Social research is not my core research field in my PhD; I have to admit. However, it is needed to link all the engineering and science research work done for CCS to the reality of CCS in the industry and the wider community. During the UKCCSRC conference in Sheffield, I joined the discussion session on Innovation in social research to promote CCS. The discussion was facilitated by Kirsty Lynch from Pale Blue Dot. The first discussion point was on the need to identify the right stakeholders for any social search. It is sometimes perceived that the general public is the main stakeholder when it comes to social research in CCS but focusing...Read more
This blog was produced by Fatih Güleç More than 100 participants from all around the UK, including scholars, experts and entrepreneurs from various industries attended the conference. Exchanges and discussions were carried out on the first day under different sessions such as the CCUS opportunities, implementation of CCUS clusters, developing a pipeline of financeable UK projects, and implementation and innovation. The session titled “Implementation and Innovation” was divided into seven themes such as Storage & gas power, Social, Utilisation, Hydrogen, Steel industry principles, BECCS, Storage & Shipping combinations under the question of What is the role of R&D in particular areas of the CCUS landscape? The discussions on the theme of Steel industry principles were carried out among seven scholars...Read more
