Deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is moving too slowly in order to meet the Paris Agreement climate goals, according to new Scottish-led research.
Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS)
There is just a fortnight to go until the UK Government could reveal the two projects that will form its carbon capture and storage (CCS) vanguard.
Arguably, much of the animosity directed towards carbon capture and storage (CCS) in recent times has seemed more than a tad harsh.
‘It’s unhelpful to cherry-pick technologies’ – industry bodies and research groups hit back at CCS critics
Industry bodies have rallied to defend carbon capture and storage (CCS) after a report claimed it wouldn’t be able to deliver the emissions reductions needed in the coming years.
A turbulent year of extreme weather events and global politics has drawn to a close with the stark warning from scientists that climate change is happening faster than previously predicted.
We have 12 years to clean up our carbon act on a global scale or face catastrophic climate change: that was the stark warning from the IPCC in October. The following month, the UK Government reaffirmed its support for carbon capture and storage (CCS) – a tested technology that will deliver massive reductions in carbon emissions – and the Acorn CCS Project in north east Scotland secured a licence to select a suitable North Sea CO2 storage site.
