Event Details

Guest speaker Dr Philippa Parmeter, Programme Manager of Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage

Dr Parmeter has a MSc in Environmental Protection and Management (Distinction) from the University of Edinburgh and a PhD in Physical Electronics. She has worked for government, academia, an environmental consultancy and for a start-up through to volume manufacturing, resulting in a patent on semiconductor waveguides and an entry in the Guinness Book of Records for the world’s smallest TV screen.

“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.
