Gain an independent & comprehensive introduction to the CCUS supply chain, from capture, through transport to permanent storage or industrial utilisation end-use, including the key technologies, economics, market drivers & business risks.
Many believe that CCUS is essential in driving ‘net zero’ decarbonisation pathways, creating huge opportunities for players across a number of industry segments including oil and gas, industrial gas supply chains, industrial processes and low carbon technologies.
This course is intended for those in business, commercial and strategically focused roles within such sectors; in particular those responsible for environmental matters, business sustainability and business transformation.
You will leave with a clearly explained and independent perspective on how, where and why CCUS is happening now and could grow in future – covering the range of technological solutions and business drivers, including policy.
In addition to reviewing existing CCUS approaches, the course will highlight new opportunities and integrated value creation possibilities through emerging carbon utilisation options. This will include how the fate of carbon capture links to other aspects of the clean energy transition, such as clean hydrogen production, industrial decarbonisation and the transition away from oil & gas.
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at business-focused non-experts who want a solid, independent and wide-ranging understanding of the interconnected topics which determine the development of the CCUS industry. They need to understand the basics of the technologies, explained in language accessible to engineers and non-engineers alike, and made relevant to their roles such as in business development, finance and strategic planning.
As such, the course should be of particular interest to engineers who are involved in analysing the market opportunities arising from the UK’s CCUS policy support, or who are moving from another sector into a new, CCUS-related role.
How will I benefit?
After the course you will be able to…
- Quantify the scale of the growth potential of CCUS
- List the industries and processes best suited to early adoption of CCUS
- Gain a clear understanding of carbon capture technologies and their cost drivers
- Learn how carbon dioxide can be transported and stored
- Identify the pros and cons of the different pathways of CCUS, including the relative emissions impacts of storage vs. utilisation
- List the steps that are required to create a sustainable, end-to-end carbon calue chain
- Review up-to-date examples of projects and strategies from around the world, and evaluate the lessons from them
- Understand the dynamics of the new competitive environment, including the importance of industrial clusters and hydrogen in CCUS deployment
