Biannual Meeting, London 4 Nov 2009

On 4 November 2009 the UK CCS Community network hosted a meeting at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London to bring together all major CCS projects recently funded by RCUK in one place. The meeting aimed to allow all attendees to update themselves on what has been a very fast-changing academic research scene and reinforce links between the project teams. The meeting was also open to additional academic attendees and to other organisations and individuals with a CCS interest. It opened with scene-setting presentations giving an overview of the RCUK CCS programme and the climate change motivation for CCS. The new DECC Chief Scientific Adviser, Prof. David MacKay, made some concluding remarks.
