CO2 Capture and Storage Mission to USA and Canada 2002
Feedback Event, DTI Conference Centre, 1 Victoria Road | London, 15th January 2003
The energy sector is likely to see dramatic changes in the future driven by concerns over security of supply and global warming. One consequence of this is the increasing interest and activity in CO2 capture, transport and storage. In particular, the PIU Energy Review, the DTI ‘Review of the case for Government Support for Cleaner Coal Technology Demonstration Plant’ and the Chief Scientific Advisor’s ‘Review of UK Energy R&D Needs’, all undertaken within the last year, all recommend CO2 capture and storage as an area warranting attention.
The Advanced Power Generation Technology Forum (APGTF), in collaboration with LOGIC (Leading Oil and Gas industry Competitiveness) and with sponsorship from the DTI, is leading a high level Mission to the USA and Canada on CO2 Capture from Power Plant and Geological Sequestration with Enhanced Oil/Coalbed Methane Recovery Options. The Mission is focusing particularly on technologies that have been (or are being) developed, demonstrated or deployed in North America that could be applied for CO2 capture and sequestration in the UK.
This Feedback Event is the major dissemination activity for the Mission and it is designed to help a wide variety of organisations improve their strategic thinking in this rapidly developing area. In particular delegates should benefit from:
- Improving awareness of activities in the USA and Canada (world leaders in this area)
- Opportunities for developing collaboration and technology transfer
- Insights into UK opportunities for CO2 capture and storage both on- and off-shore
- Gaining a better idea of the costs involved
- Relevant information on environmental risk analyses
The seminar will consist of presentations by the UK participants in the Mission covering the main areas of interest; there will also be opportunities for discussion and questions. Following this Feedback Event, a Mission Report will be produced and circulated to all delegates.
The Workshop should be of interest to: R and D workers in the field; strategy and technology managers; representatives of funding agencies; policy makers etc. Representatives would be expected from universities and industry, including the supply chain and the oil/gas industry.
