Carbon Capture & Storage Journal Club

The Carbon Capture & Storage Journal Club brings together researchers from various disciplines working on CCS related topics and provides a platform for discussion of inter- and cross-disciplinary concepts. Current members of CCSJC include researchers from the Institute for Energy Systems (IES) and the Institute for Materials and Processes (IMP) of the School of Engineering.

CCSJC members meet on a regular monthly basis; at every meeting we present and discuss recent journal publications on CCS. The main purpose of our meetings is to provide an opportunity to present new concepts, methods and technologies in the area and at every meeting two papers are presented. Each presentation typically lasts 10-15 minutes, followed by a 20-30 minute discussion. The papers are selected by the presenters and are relevant to their research. The presentations and the meetings in general are informal, but we follow strictly the following rules:

  1. The papers must be CCS related, but the exact topic can be anything from capture technologies, to CCS economics and experiments. This facilitates widening of the horizons of the CCSJC members, while staying within the topic of CCS.
  2. The presented papers must be transactions-quality publications (to ensure high quality of presented material).
  3. The papers must not be authored by the presenter or any other CCSJC member[*] (to facilitate cross-fertilisation and introduction of new concepts and ideas).
  4. Everyone gets to and has to present a paper every now and then!

[*]: The only exception to this rule is when, occasionally, we use the CCSJC meetings as a test run for conference presentations to be given by our members.

The schedule of the Summer 2016 series of CCSJC meetings is shown below:


We are an open and friendly group and we try to keep our meetings relaxed and informal. If you are interested in joining us, please send us an email. Are you the author of any of the above publications? We would be delighted to hear from you.
