World’s first for CCS

14 February 2018

ECCI residents Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) will help teach the world’s first open online course exploring climate change and carbon capture and storage technology, just launched by the University of Edinburgh.

The free five-week massive open online course, or MOOC, will explain carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the context of climate change, global energy and economics, our use of fossil fuels and global climate policy.

The course, which begins on 15 March, is suitable for anyone with a keen interest in learning how technology can help us rein in the worst impacts of climate change in a world of increasing population and energy needs.

The aim is to give participants a better understanding of climate change mitigation options and also encourage further study; one option being the CCS Masters programme also developed by the University, which was the first in the UK.

The MOOC will be taught by leading academics at the University including members of the Directorate of ECCI residents SCCS.
