Carbon capture experts create synergy at Thornton Science Park


Energy experts at the University of Chester in the UK have partnered up with a local business to lead the way on carbon capture research.

In an age where global carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere have crossed a worrying milestone, carbon capture is becoming an increasingly important aspect of greenhouse gas removal and decarbonisation technologies. Carbon capture and its subsequent storage (CCS) is recognised as a key factor to tackle global warming – by reducing the amount of CO2 emissions.

Figures by the International Energy Agency suggest that CCS could contribute to a 19% reduction in global CO2 emissions by 2050. It is a technology where the waste CO2 is removed or separated from large scale sources, such as fossil fuel (coal and gas) power plants or heavy industry.
