Dissemination – Can technology unlock unburnable carbon?
On May 19th 2016, our second White Paper ‘Can technology unlock unburnable carbon?‘ – was launched. This extensive review paper assesses the current state of knowledge by quantitatively defining the potential role of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in unlocking the unburnable carbon over the next 85 years.
Please cite the paper as:

A two page summary of the full report is available to download ‘Can technology unlock ‘unburnable carbon?‘
The evening commenced with a welcome by the Institute’s Director, Professor Nigel Brandon followed by a 30-minute overview of the report from the lead author, Dr. Sara Budinis.
The panel members include:-
· Dr. Luke Warren, new chief executive of Carbon Capture & Storage Association (CCSA)
· Professor. Paul Ekins, Director of the Institute for Sustainable Resources, at University College London and a UKERC Co-Director
· Ms. Charlotte Wolff-Bye, Head of Sustainability Strategy at Statoil
#unlockCCS hastag was used to promote the White Paper. Please find the Storify from the event.
