CCUS for Net-Zero seminars

CCUS for Net Zero seminars for government employees and UKCCSRC ECRs – summer 2021

We ran twice weekly seminars ‘CCUS for net-zero’ from 22nd June to 19th August 2021 at 10am Tuesdays and Thursdays, exclusively for government employees, regulators, funding bodies and our ECR members. These are ideal as a CPD resource for non-technical colleagues, or if you are less familiar with a particular area of CCUS. All sessions were led by experienced academics, and will feature a presentation and a short Q&A. The presentations have mostly recorded as a resource for our website, with recording stopped following the presentation to enable free discussion – please see the resources page for this series here.
