Carbon capture, utilisation and storage

Over the past decade, we have supported both the public and private sectors on a wide range of CCUS topics. Our comprehensive understanding of the power generation, CO₂ capture and industrial utilisation technologies as well as knowledge of the policy and regulatory landscape worldwide enables us to support our clients on many fronts.

Our key capabilities in carbon capture, utilisation and storage

Ricardo is leading a consortium comprising Bluebox Energy and Woodtek Engineering. The consortium is designing, installing and operating a combined heat and power demonstrator plant with a carbon negative footprint to showcase climate repairing technology, and demonstrate the effectiveness of community scale negative emission technology plus clean energy using sustainably-sourced forestry waste.
