As the targets of the Paris Agreement are translated into actions by countries worldwide, the need for large-scale deployment of CO2 Capture and Storage will become even more apparent.
To emphasise the critical role that CO2 storage is ready to play in climate change mitigation strategies, the 12th CO2GeoNet Open Forum will focus on driving CCS towards implementation and the role CO2 storage will play in hitting crucial low carbon targets.
The 12th Annual CO2GeoNet Open Forum will be held on San Servolo Island in Venice, Italy, from 8 – 9 May 2017.
The Open Forum will be followed on 10 May 2017 by a number of focused scientific workshops.
The event, now in its 12th year, has become a “must-attend” event for stakeholders, including EU representatives, industry, regulators, public authorities, NGOs, and the research community, and gives a unique opportunity to meet and interact directly with Europe’s largest group of researchers on CO2 geological storage.
Topics to be addressed include:
- international perspectives on the impact of the Conference of the Parties
- integrating CCS into the industrial sector
- new opportunities for combined utilisation and storage of CO2
- integrating CCS with energy technologies
- results from the latest projects and practical demonstrations of CCS.
The CO2GeoNet Association draws together key research institutes with CO2 storage research expertise and membership now comprises 26 institutes from 19 European countries.
With activities encompassing joint research, training, scientific advice, information and communication, CO2GeoNet has a valuable and independent role to play in enabling the efficient and safe geological storage of CO2.
