Presentation: The Status of Carbon Capture & Storage within the UK

On Tuesday 13th October Hazel Clyne gave a presentation for the Energy Institute (Aberdeen, Highlands & Islands branch) on the Status of Carbon Capture & Storage within the UK.

As a technology that can prevent carbon dioxide from fossil fuel emissions entering the atmosphere, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an attractive solution which needs to be made commercially viable.

The presentation summarises the status of CCS development activity in the UK from publically available information, including; a summary of project concept development activity to date, the status of the two CCS projects in the DECC CCS Commercialisation Competition, highlights of other potential key CCS projects (Caledonia, Teesside Collective, Don Valley) and an overview of the DECC storage appraisal project ongoing.

Business Risks from Emissions Limits

The clear link between rising global temperatures and the emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels is established. Limiting the warming effect means limiting Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels.
