CCS Development in the UK: A Contemporary Academic and Industrial Perspective


A CCS Workshop co-hosted by Coventry University's Research Centre for Fluid & Complex Systems (CU-FCS, formerly Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics) and UK CCS Research Centre on 1 November 2018. This workshop will gather speakers from industry, leading national and international organisations, research institutes and academia for a series of interactions between the attendees to improve the knowledge and awareness of the UK R&D priorities for CCS as well as identify the capacity and skills currently available for CCS in the UK. The workshop will present an overview of the current state of development of the UK CCS industry and discuss the ambitions and targets for CCS in the UK.

Sessions at the CCS Workshop will examine on-going developments and research activities of the UK CCS industry, including case/feasibility studies on CCS deployment in power generation and industry. Additional, the workshop will include a dedicated session for the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Challenge where ECRs will give a compelling spoken presentation on their research topic and its significance in just three minutes. This session will help to establish an awareness of the ECRs’ research profile within the UK CCS community while creating opportunities for future collaboration within UKCCSRC. Amazon vouchers of £50 and £30 will be available as prizes for the winner and the 1st runner-up, respectively. NB: The 3MT Challenge is an academic competition developed by the University of Queensland, Australia, and has had resounding success in giving ECRs, especially PhD researchers, an excellent way to showcase their work.

Overall, the workshop will provide an ideal forum in which renowned academics and industrial experts can engage with early career researchers and provide participants an opportunity to meet and hear what researchers and developers across the UKCCS platform are working on and its importance. More importantly, the ECRs will have the opportunity to develop and present a concise account of their project and effectively communicate their research to a wide audience. The workshop intends to emphasise the message that good communication is key and identify potential collaborations based on current research interests within the CCS research community.
