“Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a set of technologies that can reduce CO2 emissions across the economy – from industry, transport, and heat and power generation – preventing them from escalating climate change”.
Dr Philippa Parmeter will present the position that “CCS is the only option for deep emission reductions from energy-intensive process industries. When used with sustainable biomass, it can provide “negative emissions” and it has a role in producing clean hydrogen for heat and transport.”
Please note: This will be an in-person only event. There will be no opportunity for online participation.
