Scotland's Energy Strategy: The role of carbon dioxide capture and permanent storage
MetadataShow full item record
This briefing from Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS)1 sets out reasons for Scottish Government continuing to provide positive support for technologies and infrastructure that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from emissions and permanently store it in geological formations. Such technologies, collectively known as carbon capture and storage (CCS), are complementary to several options being pursued for decarbonisation of the energy system. Including CCS in Scotland’s whole energy-system strategy can make other options more effective and will be needed to extend the 2032 targets to an ambition of a net zero carbon Scotland in 2050.
