Carbon Capture and Storage is one of an array of tools available to enable the decarbonisation of modern life, the task which has in recent years crystalised as the defining challenge of the current time. Bodies such as the IEA, CCC and IPCC underline the technology as a vital part of the solution space if progress is to be made at the pace needed to meet the Paris Agreement. This talk will give an understanding of the basics of the technology and address commonly asked questions associated with it. It will also give a short overview of projects within Shell currently being planned and those in operation.
