Future of £1.5bn North East carbon capture project is in the balance

(25 January 2016)

Professor Jon Gluyas responding to the annoucement of Governmnet decision to scrap the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Commercialisation Programme says "This is a technology we will need to hit our future emissions targets and the recent decision of the Government is nonsensical." Jon Gluyas, Professor of CCS at Durham University, is quoted in an article in the Journal which looks at the impact this Governmnet turn-around could have on a Teesside scheme which would create thousands of jobs. Read the full article Future of £1.5bn North East carbon capture project is in the balance.

Prof Gluyas has worked on developing technology to monitor carbon stores (see BBC ‘Carbon Capture and Storage to Monitored by cosmic rays’ ) and is also undertaking research into combining CCS with enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR).
