The University of Edinburgh has re-launched the world’s first free open online course exploring the key role that carbon capture and storage technology (CCS) can play in tackling the effects of climate change. The course has been developed by leading academics Dr Mathieu Lucquiaud from the School of Engineering and Dr Mark Wilkinson from the School of Geosciences, alongside researcher Mennat Labib who is based in the School’s Carbon Capture and Storage Group.
The School’s Deputy Head of School and Bert Whittington Chair Professor Gareth Harrison is part of an expert panel which recently concluded a major inquiry into the future of Scotland’s energy. The two-year long inquiry was initiated by the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE), Scotland’s National Academy, to address the challenge of meeting Scotland’s future energy requirements in the face of increasing demand, power station closures, and pressing carbon reduction targets.
Academics at the School of Engineering and the School of Geosciences have re-launched the world’s first free open online course exploring how carbon capture and storage technology (CCS) can be used to tackle climate change.
Professor Stefano Brandani has held the Chair of Chemical Engineering in the Institute for Materials and Processes in the School of Engineering since 2007 and on Monday evening he presented his "inaugural" lecture. Read more and watch the video in the full article.
