Enabling carbon capture, usage and storage: measurement needs and solutions
There are a number of disruptive measures that would assist the UK in reaching its legislative target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, however only one that regardless of other policy decisions has been identified as essential: carbon capture and storage (CCS).
The Committee on Climate Change have noted that greenhouse gas removal technologies such as CCS will play an important role in offsetting ‘difficult-to-cut emissions’, for example from heavy industry, which is a position supported by the Government who have stated that CCS is ‘necessary to meet national and international climate change targets at least cost’ and are providing significant funding for industrial decarbonisation.
This event invites key stakeholders from across academia, industry and government to identify, discuss and prioritise crucial measurement needs to support the deployment of carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) technologies. The recommendations provided by attendees will be summarised in a report that will direct future metrology research, with the broad aim to help accelerate the commercialisation and success of CCUS in the UK.
Further information including a detailed agenda will be circulated to registered attendees nearer to the event.
