A webinar on implementing CO2 capture and storage (CCS) technology will take place on 22nd October, 2019.  This webinar is the second webinar funded by the UKCCSRC, as part of their programme for Early Career Researchers.

What makes this event significantly beneficial to all ECRs?

All ECRs who submitted an abstract will be given the option of having their abstract and contact information uploaded to the UKCCSRC website.  We believe this measure would effectively improve the visibility of your work, help to develop your potential network and very importantly, there is no cost to you at all.

Besides the two ECRs, Dr. Owain Tucker, who is the Global Deployment Leader for CCS & CCUS in Shell, will also share his expertise to cover the industrial aspects of CCS. Both the latest research work and the valuable practical experience shall be presented in this webinar to ensure the audiences will greatly benefit from this.

The two selected presentations will be sent to Prof. Andreas Busch and Prof. Eric Mackay in advance of the webinar, and the authors will receive feedback on content and layout of the presentations, with a view to improve the overall quality of the webinar.
