‘Think Pieces’ on current legal issues on CCS

5 October 2012

The Carbon Capture Legal Programme has commissioned several ‘Think Pieces’ from those with an expertise or particular perspective on legal developments concerning CCS. The pieces aim to provide an brief insight into discrete topics with a view to provoking further discussion and research.

Additional Think Pieces will be added throughout the duration of the Programme. If you are interested in contributing a Think Piece to the site please contact one of the Centre members.
