A New Age for Coal with Carbon Capture and Storage

Organised by:

SCI's Science and Enterprise Group

Institute of Materials

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

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
  • Media
