The projects include 7 on CO2 capture (£1,128,000), 5 on CO2 cross-cutting issues (£1,040,000), and 2 on CO2 storage (£399,000) and have attracted a total of £2 million in additional co-funding and support from a broad range of industrial partners from the UK and overseas.

Prof Jon Gibbins, Director, UKCCSRC said, “It is great to have the UKCCSRC's own research portfolio now fully under way.  Our big tasks for the next three years of the Centre's life will be to see these projects executed successfully and to link them, and all the academic research supported by the Research Councils, DECC and other funders, to maximise their value for supporting future CCS delivery.”

The projects funded in this call are fundamental and multidisciplinary CCS research projects that address research needs identified by the Advanced Power Generation Technology Forum (APGTF) and the DECC CCS Roadmap for Innovation and R&D.
