Pioneering ‘fingerprint’ test will build confidence in geological storage of CO2

A test developed by Scottish scientists to check for leaks from carbon capture and storage (CCS) sites, where man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are stored deep underground, has been used for the first time in Canada.

The UK has ‘more than enough’ geological CO₂ storage to tackle our emissions to 2050 and beyond

SCCS welcomes the launch of the Energy Technologies Institute’s new report, Taking Stock of UK CO₂ Storage, which clearly shows that the UK has enough geological CO₂ storage to support a carbon capture and storage industry to at least 2050, and beyond.
