£6m boost for Carbon capture and storage research

The UK CCS Research Centre (UKCCSRC) has been awarded £6m by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) to continue its carbon capture and storage (CCS) research projects.

Its core activities are delivered by six of the UK’s leading CCS institutions – British Geological Survey, University of Cambridge, University of Edinburgh, Imperial College London, University of Nottingham and University of Sheffield.

The research centre's purpose is to ensure CCS plays an effective role in decreasing emissions while securing “affordable and controllable” electricity supplies and low carbon heat.
