CANCELLED – EBC Energy Resources Program: Carbon Capture & Sequestration

May 31, 2019 @ 7:30 am – 12:00 pm
Brown Rudnick LLP
One Financial Center

Please note – this program has been cancelled.

This EBC Energy program will define the scale and dimension of how Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) can contribute to a successful clean energy transition. Experienced practitioners will provide an overview of the four major elements of CCS; CO2 Capture, its Compression, Transport and Storage. The speakers will offer views on the current state of the art, cost and safety issues, future deployment and environmental impact.

Background – Carbon Capture and Storage

Carbon Capture and Sequestration/Storage is the process of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from large point sources, such as fossil fuel power plants, and transporting it to an underground geological formation for long term containment. The aim is to prevent the release of large quantities of CO2 from fossil fuel use in power generation and other industries as a means of mitigating the contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming and ocean acidification. Although CO2 has been injected into geological formations for several decades for various purposes, including enhanced oil recovery (EOR), the long-term storage of CO2 is a relatively new concept that can mitigate the continued use of fossil fuels at scale as we transition to renewable energy.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
