Carbon Capture and Storage Conference / UKCCSC Biannual Meeting
1-2 September 2011, Heriot-Watt University Conference Centre

This flagship conference, jointly hosted by the UKCCSC and IPA, brought together leading industrialists, the academic community and other stakeholders to look at where the UK must go in the next decade to successfully deploy commercial scale CCS.

Industry and Academic experts presented papers on the following topics:
  • Economics
  • CO2 Capture
  • CO2 Storage
  • Enhanced Oil Recovery
  • CO2 Transport
  • Public Perception
  • Policy & Governance

The conference built on the success of previous UKCCSC events and the last 2 IPA CCS conferences. It allowed for shared understanding with those working in the Carbon Capture and Storage sector (CCS) on the economics of CCS, the technical issues of transport and measurement of CO2 and the challenges facing the long term integrity of storing carbon offshore.

The following presentations were given at the conference:

David Rennie, CCS - Scotland's Economic Potential

Jacqui Williams and Chris Franklin, CCS Research in the UK

Mike Farley, CCSA Strategy for CCS
