The Role of CCS in the Energy Transition - Episode 5
In this episode of Capture, Store, Repeat we speak with Dr. Sara Budinis of the International Energy Agency (IEA) about the role of CCS in the low-carbon energy transition, the rise of technologies like Direct Air Carbon Capture and the value of knowledge sharing in the CCS space.
The International Energy Agency is an autonomous inter-governmental organisation made up of 31 member countries, 11 association countries, and 4 accession countries.
Recorded in August of 2022, the IEA released several CCS-relevant reports before and after the taping of this episode including:
• CCUS in Clean Energy Transitions - www.iea.org/reports/ccus-in-cle…-energy-transitions
• Direct Air Capture - A key technology for net zero -www.iea.org/reports/direct-air-capture-2022
• Tracking clean energy progress 2022 – CCUS -www.iea.org/reports/carbon-capt…ation-and-storage-2
• World Energy Outlook 2022 - www.iea.org/reports/world-energy-outlook-2022
Innovative Ways To Approach CO2 Storage - Episode 4
What constitutes a CO2 storage site? And are there innovative ways to approach CO2 storage development, particularly as interest around carbon capture and storage technology grows? We’re joined by Dr. Alex Bump, a research science associate with the University of Texas’ Gulf Coast Carbon Center to unpack where CO2 storage development is at now, and how it can continue to evolve in the future.

At First There Was Sleipner! A Walk Down CCS Memory Lane - Episode 3
In 1996, Norway's Sleipner project became the world's first commercial CCS project developed with the aim to curb CO2 industrial emissions. Now, 25 years later, there are over 190 CCS projects in the CCS pipeline. Listen in as Olav Kårstad, one of the original researchers tasked to work on the project with Equinor, and former member of the IEAGHG, speaks to the Global CCS Institute about climate solutions in Norway and how Sleipner helped propel CCS ambitions further.

CCS and Decarbonising the Cement and Concrete Industry - Episode 1
CCS is scaling up across a wide range of industries, and cement and concrete is no exception. In this episode, we speak with Claude Lorea, Director of Cement, Innovation and ESG of the Global Cement and Concrete Association, about the value of CCS as a climate solution, the challenges of scaling up the innovative technology, and ambitious plans for the cement and concrete industry to reach net-zero by 2050.
