Part of the UK Universities COP26 Climate Innovation Showcase, this event will explore the big options available for CO2 decrease, removal and storage by 2050, both as nature-based remedies, and as technology solutions. How can these both contribute and why is longevity of storage the key to balance, and to reliable offsets?
Chaired by Professor Mercedes Maroto-Valer, Champion and Director, UK Industrial Decarbonisation Research and Innovation Centre (IDRIC), Heriot-Watt University, the event will feature:
- Professor Stuart Haszeldine, Professor of Carbon Capture & Storage, School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh
- Professor Pete Smith, Professor of Soils & Global Change and Science, Director of Scotland’s ClimateXChange from the University of Aberdeen
- Jeremy Leggett, social entrepreneur, writer and rewilder
- Kirsty Lynch, Head of Project communications, Storegga (Pale Blue Dot Energy), a supporter of Scotland’s Acorn Project
Join this debate, in person, to explore two very different paths towards achieving Net Zero – nature or technology.
