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.

Mr. Alan James, who is the Managing Director at Pale Blue Dot Energy, will share some of his experiences working in the CCS industry and provide an update on the exciting progress of the Acorn CCS project being led by Pale Blue Dot Energy. Two early career researchers, Alice O’Brien and Catherine Spurin, will also present the latest progress of their studies on CCS.

We are aiming to enable the participants to:

  • Realise the significance of CCS in the big picture of energy, society and climate.
  • Understand the key issues of planning, designing, and implementing CCS projects, in terms of scientific, practical and legal aspects.
  • Recognize the current opportunities and challenges of CCS application at industrial scale.
  • Be informed of CCS related research across the UK.
