SCCS partnership nets fresh expertise

Come along to any gathering of Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) scientists and you will soon notice not only the diversity of research underway within the partnership but also the multicultural aspects of the group.

This pool of carbon capture and storage (CCS) expertise received a boost earlier this year with the arrival of three academics with links to institutes based in Norway, Spain, Wales and the USA.

  • Prof Neil McKeown
    Crawford Tercentenary Chair of Chemistry, School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh
  • Dr Susana García
    Lecturer at the Institute of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering, School of Engineering & Physical Sciences, Heriot-Watt University
  • Dr Florian Doster
    Assistant Professor (Global Platform for Research Leaders), Institute of Petroleum Engineering (IPE), Heriot-Watt University

Meet the new faces at the leading edge of CCS research.

What is SCCS?

SCCS is an independent research partnership of British Geological Survey, Heriot-Watt University, University of Aberdeen and the University of Edinburgh.

Its researchers are engaged in high-level CCS research as well as joint projects with industry, with the aim of supporting the development and eventual commercialisation of CCS as a climate mitigation technology worldwide.
