The University of Edinburgh, one of the founding partners of Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS), has developed the world’s first open online course exploring the technology that can provide a long-term solution to protecting the atmosphere from an excess of carbon dioxide (CO2).
The free five-week massive open online course, or MOOC, will explain carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the context of climate change, global energy and economics, our use of fossil fuels and global climate policy.
The course, which begins on 15th March, is suitable for anyone with a keen interest in learning how technology can help to rein in the worst impacts of climate change in a world of increasing population and energy needs.
The aim is to give participants a better understanding of climate change mitigation options and also encourage further study; one option being the CCS Masters programme also developed by the University, which was the first in the UK.
The MOOC will be taught by leading academics at the University and, on completion, there is the option to gain a Verified Certificate.
A new study by Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) has unveiled how a “cluster” of existing industrial facilities in Scotland could be the key for affordable carbon capture and storage (CCS) transportation.
On Thursday 7th September, Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS), the largest carbon capture and storage (CCS) research group in the UK, delivered an open letter to Claire Perry, MP, Minister of State for Climate Change and Industry.
A patented technology from The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), part of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory system, offers a cost-effective way to separate carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from hydrogen (H2), carbon monoxide, (CO), and nitrogen (N2) – enabling low-carbon electricity generation and efficient ...
