The Carbon Landscape: Methods & Metrics of CO₂ Storage

December 5, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm GMT

SCCS Annual Conference 2023

With the Acorn Project confirmed under Track-2 of the UK Government’s CCUS Cluster Sequencing programme, CCS in Scotland can now progress to playing a key role in delivering industrial decarbonisation, creating economic opportunities as part of a just transition and tackling the climate emergency.

Offering the large-scale capture and permanent storage of harmful carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions, CCS is essential – alongside improved efficiencies and cleaner sources of energy – for protecting our atmosphere and for meeting climate targets.

CCS can be grouped into two main approaches: engineered and nature- based. And within these, too, CCS comes in different ‘flavours’, each with its own specific operating, cost, benefits and sequestration profile. From engineered solutions, such as industrial CCS with cement, steel and chemicals manufacturing and removals, via bioenergy with CCS (BECCS) to nature-based solutions such as forestry, peatland restoration, and enhanced weathering, all are important; all have a role to play.

Featuring a range of expert speakers from academia, industry, government and policy making, this year’s conference will open a dialogue between these different CCS methods. We will discuss their funding, policy and business model requirements and explore their specific benefits, attractiveness to investors, cost to operate, storage effectiveness and permanence.
