Actions and Detail Panel
Clean Carbon Meets:- Professor Jon Gibbins, Head of UKCCS-RC
Wed 10 May 2017, 12:00 – 17:30 BST
The Director of the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) gives a public lecture at the University of Southampton. Plus - we showcase 2 more Clean Carbon Research Themes: Capture and Reduction.
There will also be a 'Speed Dating' slot. If you are interested in taking part, the challenge is to pitch your research in 3 minutes. Email the group's Interdisciplinary research Coordinator, Frances Clarke (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to book a slot in this segment.
The aim of the UKCCSRC is to provide a national focal point for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) research and development in order to bring together the user community and academics to analyse problems, devise and carry out world-leading research and share delivery, thus maximising impact. A key priority is to help stimulate the UK economy by driving an integrated research programme focused on increasing the contribution of CCS to a low-carbon energy system for the UK.

Professor Gibbins is also the Research Area Champion for Solvent Post-Combustion. He has worked on coal and biomass gasification and combustion for over 30 years, at Foster Wheeler, Imperial College and the University of Edinburgh and on carbon capture and storage (CCS) since 2002. He is currently Professor of Power Plant Engineering and Carbon Capture at the University of Sheffield and Director of the UK CCS Research Centre. He is involved in a number of other academic, industrial and government initiatives on CCS in the UK and overseas, including the SaskPower CCS Global Consortium Advisory Committee. He was also a member of SaskPower's Clean Coal Project Advisory Panel for their 400MW oxyfuel plant study in 2006-2007, has participated in reports and inquiries on CCS for a range of UK Government and other organisations and has contributed to a number of media pieces and other outreach activities on CCS. He also takes an interest in broader energy system issues, as a member of the DECC Scientific Advisory Group from 2010 to 2014 and through participation in ongoing work on electricity system balancing, economics and regulation
