The International Energy Agency (IEA) states that CCS, or Carbon Capture and Storage, could reduce global carbon dioxide emissions by 19%, and that fighting climate change could cost 70% more without CCS.
In March 2013, the UK Government Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced a £1bn CCS Commercialisation Programme Competition aimed at developing technology at scale for the removal of CO2 emissions from coal and gas fired power stations.
The first in a series of SCI events exploring solutions for large scale capture, storage and utilisation of CO2, this conference will provide an update on the enabling technologies for combustion and CO2 capture, CCS projects underway and planned, and models and drivers for commercialisation.
This conference is intended for
- Policy managers ( re regulatory development)
- Academics in the field (re market development)
- R&D managers
- Marketing and business development managers
- Investment decision makers
- Registration and refreshments
- Introduction by chair for morning session Chair: Stuart Haszeldine, Edinburgh University
- The role of coal in the evolution of European energy policy Mark Powell, AT Kearney Energy and Utilities Group
- A new age for coal with CCS - constraints on growth Jeff Chapman, Carbon Capture and Storage Association
- Commercial feasibility of integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) Francisco García Peña, ELCOGAS Puertollano IGCC Plant
- Flameless pressurised oxycombustion (FPO) Massimo Malavasi, ITEA
- Overview of CO2 capture Paul Fennel, Imperial College London
- Status and future outlook for carbon credit certificates Alexandre Vial, Entercap France
