Training course overview

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an essential technology in the fight against climate change. It offers a viable solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by capturing carbon dioxide produced from industrial processes and power generation and storing it safely underground. However, understanding CCS requires more than technical expertise. This five-day training course is designed specifically for non-technical professionals who seek a comprehensive understanding of CCS, its applications, challenges, and opportunities in the context of sustainability and climate action.

What are the goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Gain a thorough understanding of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology, including its principles, processes, and applications
  • Familiarize themselves with the various carbon capture technologies and their respective advantages, limitations, and implementation challenges
  • Understand the methods and considerations involved in carbon storage and transportation, including safety, monitoring, and regulatory compliance
  • Explore the economic and financial aspects of CCS, including cost-benefit analysis, financing options, and the role of policy and incentives
  • Examine the social and ethical dimensions of CCS deployment, including public perception, stakeholder engagement, and integration into corporate sustainability strategies
  • Identify emerging trends and future outlook for CCS technology and its role in achieving climate goals

Who is this training course for?

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Sustainability Managers and Officers
  • Environmental Consultants
  • Policy Analysts and Regulators
  • Business Development Managers
  • Energy Industry Professionals (Non-Technical)
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Practitioners
  • Government Officials involved in Climate Policy
  • NGO and Nonprofit Leaders focused on Climate Mitigation
  • Anyone interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of CCS technology and its implications for climate action

How will this training course be presented?
