Oil and gas sector ‘must take action to advance CCS technologies’

That’s the verdict from Oil & Gas UK, which has published a new report stressing CCS is critical to the UK’s plans to reach a net zero economy by 2050

US announces $43m for carbon capture and storage technology

The programme seeks to develop technologies that address difficulties in decarbonisation of electricity systems, focusing specifically on complications in CCS design, operations and commercialisation potential

UK Government awards £26m for carbon capture, utilisation and storage

The finance will be shared among nine projects, including the nation’s largest emissions-capturing facility to date

Carbon dioxide
Scientists work out way to get geological CCS rockin’

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh say interrupting the flow of gas into underground rock storage can improve efficiency

UK’s first CCUS project could be up and running by mid-2020s

The government’s overarching ambition is to eventually roll out the technology at scale in the 2030s, ‘subject to reduced costs’

EU failing on commercial CCS deployment, say auditors

They found EU support for demonstration projects has ‘achieved little in terms of projects delivered and results achieved’

Drax announces £400k bioenergy carbon capture and storage trial

It aims to mix its greenhouse gas emissions with a solvent to collect and store carbon dioxide

Norway backs CCS with £7.3m funding

It will cover research into the transport of CO2, storage and up to two capture facilities

Is carbon storage all it’s cracked up to be?

A UK university has been awarded €1 million (£900,000) to assess the risks of underground carbon dioxide storage sites leaking. Scientists at Heriot-Watt University aim to use the funding to improve understanding of how fractures in the rocks used to trap the greenhouse gas can affect the process. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) catches carbon […]

New process converts emissions to clean fuel

A new process could convert captured greenhouse gas emissions into a useful fuel. The technique, developed by scientists at the US Department of Energy’s (DoE) Idaho National Laboratory (INL), could help carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies become more widely implemented by making them much more economically viable. The researchers have developed an efficient process […]
