The Global CCS Institute will host its Sixth Annual DC Forum on February 8, 2017 in Washington, DC. Participants will discuss and explore the essential roles of both government and business in continuing to advance CCS in the region and globally. In conjunction with the Forum, the Institute will hold an Americas Members’ Meeting to report on activities in the region and invite Member input on priority actions for the coming year.
As the Government begins work to develop a new Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) strategy, this seminar will provide a timely opportunity to assess the next steps for CCS and carbon mitigation technology utilisation as part of the UK’s decarbonisation plans, as well as the policy implications of the referendum vote to leave the European Union for the UK’s ability to achieve legislated climate targets.
The goal of the workshop is to bring academic and industrial experts together in order to fertilize active discussions on this topic of significant relevance. The workshop presents major results of the FP7 research-project INTERACT - INnovaTive Enzymes and polyionic-liquids based membRAnes as CO2 Capture Technology as well as other research projects in the same area and relevant industrial applications. More information and the programme can be found in the workshop flyer.
A panel of executives & market experts discuss a broad clean energy portfolio that will enable countries to reach NDC energy and mitigation goals, including energy efficiency, renewable energy as well as CO2 capture & utilisation for energy and material production & for permanent geological storage.
The IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report’s (AR-5) indicates that it is still plausible the world can meet the ‘well below’ 2°C goal with the mitigation options available today; but it is almost impossible to envisage such a scenario without the widescale deployment of CCS, including negative emissions through bioenergy coupled with CCS (BECCS).
The industrial sector will require a greater take-up of CCS if it is to better track to emissions levels that can help halt average temperature rises to well below 20C. This side-event explores the reasons why CCS is considered so critical to the mitigation efforts of industrial sectors like iron and steel, cement, fertilisers and hydrogen production; which are responsible for about a quarter of all global emissions.
Taking place at The Hilton Hotel in Düsseldorf, Germany, the conference titled ‘Carving Out Growth’, will address the hot topics in the European gases business in 2016 and identify where opportunities exist for future growth – as well as the innovation required to carve out this growth.
