Resources from our 'CCUS for Net Zero' seminars

We’ve been hosting sessions exclusively for government employees and our ECR members, twice weekly throughout June to August 2021. We’ve recorded the presentations and shared the slides below (where we have permission) to aid as a learning resource for those who weren’t able to attend and those who just want to cover the fundamental tenets of carbon capture and storage.
