C-Capture’s CEO, Tom White, will present at a national conference in Westminster this week, highlighting the importance of carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) technology in reaching net zero.
Tom’s presentation forms part of the CCUS 2023: Springboard to Net Zero conference by the Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA) at Central Hall Westminster, London, 17th to 18th October. The event is the fifth annual flagship conference by the CCSA and will focus on the way forward for CCUS as a key solution on the route to net-zero emissions.
Speaking as part of the Innovations in Carbon Capture Technologies session, Tom will outline the advantages of C-Capture’s next generation technology and the company’s plans to make a globally significant contribution to mitigating the impacts of climate change. The session forms part of day two of the conference, assessing new developments in the rapidly evolving carbon capture technology space – and the role that technological innovations can play in accelerating the transition to net zero.
Tom White, CEO, C-Capture, explained: “Carbon capture technologies must be deployed at scale, and rapidly if we are to reach net zero. But there are barriers – such as cost and compatibility in multiple industries – that are currently preventing the widespread adoption of carbon capture. The answer lies in new technologies.
“Our next generation tech is a complete innovation for the sector. In contrast to traditional approaches our solution does not rely on the use of amines – which means it is environmentally benign. It is also lower cost and robust enough to withstand the challenging emissions produced by difficult-to-decarbonise industries. Combined, these advantages mean that our technology has the potential to break through the barriers that are preventing the carbon capture being deployed at scale – and accelerate the adoption of carbon capture.”
Bringing together UK and EU Governments, industry and wider stakeholders the CCSA’s conference aims to drive progress on CCUS and demonstrate the contribution that the technology can make in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement ahead of COP28 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, later this year.
