Net Hero Podcast – Is CCS the ‘net’ in net zero?

In Episode 3 we discover if carbon capture and storage is actually the most cost effective step we can take at present to cut emissions

Big Zero Report 2023

This week on the podcast I speak to Alex Milward, Director of the UK’s Carbon Capture Storage and Utilisation programme at BEIS.

CCS is a way of allowing us to still use fossil fuels but capture and sequestrate the carbon, so we don’t increase the level of emissions.

Many see it as a ‘net’ solution ie it can help us actively reduce carbon but others say it’s a licence to keep using fossil fuels.

It’s decades old technology but we have never been very good at it here. So can the UK do it on a big scale, will it help us in the transition to a fossil fuel free future and is it possible we can be world leaders at it and encourage the likes of China, the US and India to follow?

Listen in and afterwards, let me know your thoughts, use the #nethero on our social media.
