Leaders - CCS in Europe

Ukrainian economics and the potential for decarbonization and growth
Deep decarbonization could present economic opportunity to Ukrainian business in the
heavily coal dependent and politically wobbly country, says Bellona
 
Improving CO2 storage using a hospital scanner
Researchers at the University of Bergen (UiB) have identified PET scanning as an
effective tool for improved oil production and CO2 storage
 
Understanding the long-term fate of geologically stored CO2
The ULTimateCO2 project had two clear goals: to significantly advance knowledge of
processes that may affect the long-term fate of geologically stored CO2 and to provide
guidance on techniques for predicting the long-term performance of a storage site
 
Projects and policy
 
team publishes paper on CCS pilot funding
The Coal Utilization Research Council (CURC) and Japan’s New Energy and Industrial
Technology Development Organization (NEDO) have released a study
 
UK Government should set power sector carbon intensity target
A UK Energy and Climate Change Committee report says the Government should
accept the recommendation of its climate change advisers
 
Lessons from Mars: Space science plays a key role informing terrestrial CCS
Adrienne Macartney, from the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences, University of
Glasgow, is designing an exhibit to explain how the exploration of Mars, and other
planets, can inform strategies for carbon managementon Earth
 
Brad Page: political courage needed to achieve climate targets
Bold policy commitments from political leaders are the only route to achieving the
ambitious targets of the Paris Climate Agreement
 
UKCCSRC and UK Parliament meeting reports
 
UK CCS Research Centre meeting discusses the future of CCS
The UKCCSRC Biannual in Manchester discussed UK CCS post Paris. One emphasis

part of the plan to limit global warming to 2 degrees 
 
UK Parliamentary CCS meeting looks at Teesside
A meeting of the UK’s Carbon Capture and Storage All Party Parliamentary Group
(APPG) took place on March 24, looking at developments with industrial CCS

How to deal with the dual set of requirements?
 
Capture and utilisation
 
Berkeley lab develops CO2 capture membrane
A new highly permeable carbon capture membrane has been developed by
scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory
 
Transport and storage
 
Use it or lose it: door closing on UK CCS
A new report from Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) says the UK must use
its offshore assets now or risk losing the opportunity
 
NIST could help keep sequestered carbon from blowin’ in the wind
