We work to increase opportunities for companies to interact with researchers from the University – a conversation can often spark new innovative ideas.

Throughout the year we organise a wide range of workshops, events and activities for companies can find out more about the latest research from the University. We also run a busy calendar of events for University of Edinburgh students and staff.

Innovation Showcase: Decreasing CO2 in the atmosphere: solutions from technology and nature

Tuesday 9 November 2021, 3:30-5:00pm

Time has already run out to talk about climate change. And rapid actions with immediate impact are required. There are only two options to solve the fundamental cause of the climate crisis: EITHER stop putting carbon into the atmosphere, by combusting fossil fuels and biomass for transport, heat, industry and electricity, and stop producing cement and steel and waste, and produce food sustainably. OR balance every tonne of carbon emissions with the same, or more carbon storage - which has to last for 10,000 years.

This event will explore the big options available for CO2 decrease, removal and storage by 2050, both as nature-based remedies, and as technology solutions. How can these both contribute and why is the longevity of storage the key to balance, and to reliable offsets?
