CCUS for Net Zero seminars: resources

Throughout Summer 2021, we hosted twice-weekly webinars exclusively for government employees and our ECR members.

Recordings of the presentations and slides are shared below (where we have permission) as an ongoing learning resource, especially for anyone who wants to learn more about the fundamental tenets of carbon capture and storage.
