Scientists from the Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) research partnership, of which Heriot-Watt is a member, have competitively won a 20% share of a £2.57 million funding pot to carry out targeted research that will support the commercial deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the UK.

Professor Mercedes Maroto-Valer, of Heriot-Watt’s Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage, is the Principal investigator in a £185,000 collaborative project between Heriot-Watt University and KROHNE Ltd which addresses a key knowledge gap for the commercialisation of CCS technologies and will provide a complete assessment of meters for accurate flow measurement of CO2 within CCS streams.
