This course provides an overview of carbon capture, primarily looking at the process of carbon capture and storage (CCS), but also reviewing carbon capture and utilization (CCU). Carbon capture first began to be used in the 1970s for removing carbon dioxide from natural gas, but in the last few years it has emerged as a key tool towards decarbonizing a number of industrial processes, including the production of hydrogen, cement, and iron and steel. This course covers the major methods of capturing carbon dioxide, and then transporting and storing (or sequestering) it. We’ll review the regulatory support for carbon capture, and the key carbon capture projects which are currently operational or planned.
There are no pre-requisites for this course and there is no advance preparation required.
Practice exercises and self-assessment quizzes are included to help reinforce key topics introduced throughout the course.
A comprehensive final test will be given at the end of the course.Register For This Course
