Prof. Stuart Haszeldine OBE, Professor of Carbon Capture and Storage, University of Edinburgh
Stuart Haszeldine was a geologist working on coal accumulation, then north sea oil and gas extraction. Exploring secure places for radioactive waste disposal, led to searching for places to permanently store waste CO2, creating some of the very first UK integrated project assessments. That led to All-Energy, fracking, hydrogen production and storage, and the value of Greenhouse Gas Recovery, Stuart advises UK and Scottish governments, leads academic-industrial networks of SCCS in Scotland and co-leads UKCCSRC in the UK. He is Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Order of the British Empire, William Smith Medal of the Geological Society.
