The Production of Low Carbon Gas - Consultation Response: SCCS response to the Carbon Connect consultation on the production of low carbon gas
Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) is a research partnership of the British Geological Survey, Heriot-Watt University, University of Aberdeen, the University of Edinburgh and the University of Strathclyde. SCCS researchers are engaged in innovative applied research and joint projects with industry and Government to support the development and commercialisation of carbon capture and storage (CCS) as a climate change mitigation technology. As the role of CCS in decarbonising gas for heat supply is primarily its ability to enable low carbon hydrogen production, SCCS's response to the Carbon Connect's consultation on the future of gas focuses on hydrogen and not biogas or bioSNG. However, it is worth noting that the application of CCS to biogas production could enable negative emissions, which are important in the context of the Paris Agreement ambition to reach net zero emissions.
