Brown Bag Lunch N° 6: Carbon Capture and Storage

On Thursday 23 February 2022, EMB hosted a Brown Bag Lunch on the topic of Carbon Capture and Storage. The event started off with lunch offered by EMB, followed by a presentation from Prof. Douglas Connelly from the National Oceanographic Centre, UK, and ended with an interactive discussion.

For this Brown Bag lunch, Professor Doug Connelly joined us to give talk on 'Assuring the integrity of offshore Carbon Capture and Storage'.

Professor Doug Connelly is the Associate Director for Research at the National Oceanography Centre in the UK. He is a biogeochemist by training and has worked in marine science for over 30 years, in applied observations and the development of marine sensors and technology. Doug has been involved in many European Commission funded projects and has coordinated one Innovative Training Network (ITN) and two research and innovation projects, involving more than 20 academic and commercial entities. The last large EU project he coordinated was the STEMM-CCS (Strategies for Environmental Monitoring of Marine Carbon Capture and Storage) looking at using existing and newly developed approaches for monitoring offshore carbon capture and storage reservoirs.


This Brown Bag Lunch was organised as an in-person event at the Helmholtz Association at the KoWi room in Brussels, with the possibility to follow the presentation online. You can re-watch the full presentation here and watch a 3-min video featured in the presentation on the main experiment cruise highlights of this project here.
