South African Centre for Carbon Capture & Storage



Carbon Capture & Storage is a new technology and there are few publicly available research investigations being undertaken in South Africa regarding carbon capture and storage, especially by the academic institutions. More attention needs to be given to increasing academic studies, because;

  • There is a need to produce a stream of persons qualified in aspects of carbon capture and storage. Without such individuals, South Africa will have insufficient qualified people to undertake carbon capture and storage projects.
  • Centres of academic excellence in South Africa will enable international co-operation and researcher and student exchange.

In order to address these needs the Centre is providing bursaries to Honours, Masters and Doctorate students in the field of carbon capture and storage.
