REALISE CCUS webinar 3: The Cork Cluster study

13:00 - 14:00 CEST

This webinar provides an overview of findings from a recent study of the Cork industrial cluster in Ireland. Participants will hear details of the industries involved: ESB Aghada and BGE Whitegate generation stations and Irving Oil Whitegate Refinery. There will be details of the role of carbon capture and storage (CCS) and how this might be configured, from the point of CO2 capture to transport and long-term geological storage. Cost-benefit analysis will also be considered and there will be a discussion of different approaches to public engagement and best practices that influence the social acceptability of CCS projects.

This free online event will be chaired by Inna Kim of SINTEF (REALISE Project Coordinator) and features presentations by Paul Murphy of Ervia (REALISE Work Package 3 Lead) and Paola Velasco-Herrejón of University College Cork (REALISE Work Package 4). There will be a 20-minute Q&A.
