Next Generation Capture Technologies – Opportunities and Barriers to Development
30th September 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
AECOM, the University of Sheffield and BEIS are holding an online workshop on Thursday 30 September 2021 at 2.00pm – 4.00pm on ‘Next Generation Capture Technologies – Opportunities and Barriers to Development’.
Carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) is a priority area of the UK Government’s ten-point plan for a green industrial revolution. In support of the plan, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) must deliver the £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP) between April 2021 and March 2025. This requires development of Advanced CCUS demonstration projects to allow innovation to occur and promote cost effective CO2 emission reduction.
AECOM and the University of Sheffield have been appointed by BEIS to conduct a review of next generation capture technologies and an analysis of selected options. The review will consider the potential application of capture technology to different industrial, waste and power sites. The outputs of the assignment are intended to inform government decisions relating to the provision of innovation support funding for CCUS, and future policy around CCUS deployment. The focus of the BEIS-funded review is on next generation carbon capture technology that can commercially deploy at 500-1000 tCO2 per day or greater between 2025 and 2035.
This workshop is intended to gather feedback from industry on types of capture technology being considered and opportunities and barriers relating to the development of capture projects at sites across the UK. An outline of the event is provided below.
- Applications for CCUS and reasons why companies may be interested in developing projects.
- Overview of some of the main types of carbon capture technology.
- Parameters that will be important to potential users of carbon capture technology.
- Opportunities and barriers to deployment.
2. Interactive Session
Workshop participants will be asked for feedback on topics including:
- The kinds of carbon capture technology they may be more likely to consider developing.
- Opportunities that may be unique to their industry in relation to deployment of carbon capture.
- Barriers to deployment of carbon capture projects.
Responses provided during this and other parts of the workshop may be noted in meeting records, but only on an anonymous basis. We also ask all participants to follow the same Chatham House Rule principles.
3. Open Discussion
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions or make comments in relation to the topics discussed at the workshop.
This workshop is likely to be of most interest to:
- Potential users of carbon capture technology
- Industry bodies whose members may use carbon capture technology in the future
- Companies developing next generation carbon capture technology
- Academics and researchers
The event is free to attend.
Registration is now closed.
