Carbon Capture and Storage is undergoing something of an upsurge, with this in mind, the UK’s Energy Institute has developed a training course aimed towards this very sector.

Martin Maeso CEnv MEI, Technical Director of the Energy Institute (EI), described the move as, “Another great example of the EI’s support for those working in the energy industry.”

The Engineering Institute’s course is aimed to cover the technical and safety requirements involved all along the capture, storage and transport chain.

Maeso expanded, “Participants will understand the EI is working to bring together industry expertise in the safe capture, storage and management of CO2 emissions. Through the provision of training to support continuous professional development, and the delivery of good practice guidance, the EI is working to ensure those in the energy industry have the appropriate skills and knowledge to help face the challenges that lie ahead.”

Working with the Health and Safety Executive (UK), the Carbon Capture and Storage Association and the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute, the EI describes itself as a platform bringing relevant companies together to discuss issues surrounding the implementation of the associated technology with both a global and domestic outlook.

The association tries to learn from stakeholder events, meetings and investigations. The Institute has published guidance based on this combined industry knowledge and experience for the benefit of the future development of CCS.
