Ahead of international climate conference COP26 experts at the University of Edinburgh have announced they will begin the fifth run of its carbon capture and storage (CCS) online course.

The popular course, which has seen 18,000 participants from across the world, will explore CCS related technologies

Having completed a fourth run of the course, David Pickering, a UK geologist, said that he recommends the course to anyone looking for a gateway into the science behind CCS and the role it can play in the energy transition.

“The course is very accessible to non-scientists too and is a fantastic way to make an informed decision about the climate solutions that are within reach,” he added.

The online course is presented by experts in their relevant fields and is regarded as the first such course to cover CCS and climate change. Intended to help people from all walks of life understand the road to decarbonisation, the course is set to begin on 25th October.
