Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage researchers win majority of £4m fund for CCS research


Scientists from the Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) research group have won the majority of a £4m fund for vital exploration into carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.

After winning 70% of the fund from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), researchers from SCCS will lead several projects to develop flexible and cost-effective carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technologies.

Understanding how CCS technologies are evolving and how costs will come down determine when industry adopts and implements the technology 

The first project, awarded with a £1.1m research fund, explores adsorption-based options for CO2 capture. SCCS aims to produce possibilities that can be adjusted easily for different applications in order to reduce overall costs by the mass production of units, rather than developing individual solutions for each system.
