Next month, scientists from the ALIGN-CCUS project will travel to Norway to share their findings from a range of research areas at the 10th Trondheim CCS Conference, or TCCS10.

As we reach the midway point of ALIGN-CCUS, our project partners will present results from their leading research on public perception, enabling CO2 transport, countering the degradation of capture solvents, designing for CO2 injection and planning for offshore CO2 transport and storage.

Dr Maxine Akhurst, principal geologist at the British Geological Survey (project lead for work package 3), gets some help from two rock stars to show how certain rocks are ideal for storing the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide (CO2) deep below ground and ensuring it stays put.

We delivered our third knowledge-sharing webinar in February, which focused on transporting carbon dioxide (CO2) in varying volumes to offshore storage sites, and the opportunities as well as challenges involved.

At the end of October, a team of ALIGN-CCUS research partners took the latest findings of our European project to an international audience at the GHGT-14 conference in Melbourne, Australia.

The GHGT conference series is the largest international gathering of carbon capture and storage (CCS) experts, and this year’s event was made even more pertinent by the IPCC’s recent report on global efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
