- Workshop 2 recording and documents
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.
The first workshop took place on the 30th September and was 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.
