While technical and legal barriers to CCS are diminishing, the difficulty in building a sound commercial case for the development and operation of CCS infrastructure remains a serious obstacle. One way to significantly reduce the cost of CCS is to realise economies of scale by sharing a single CO2 transportation and storage infrastructure system among several operators of CO2 capture plants.

Workshop
Warsaw

The global clean energy community comprising of renewables, energy efficiency and carbon capture and storage (CCS) was recently lauded by the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) as being additive rather than competitive; and that international collaboration to demonstrate these technologies at scale to overcome the challenges must be to the benefit of the global commons. These themes are further discussed by an eminent panel of globally respected experts.

Conference

The World Coal Association is hosting the 'International Coal & Climate Summit' in Warsaw on 18-19 November 2013.

The Summit will bring together the leadership of the world's largest coal producing companies, senior policy-makers, business leaders, academics and NGO representatives to discuss the role of coal in the global economy, in the context of the climate change agenda.

Workshop
Warsaw

Climate science increasingly demands of carbon capture and storage (CCS) a substantive theoretical mitigation role over the medium term. The reality is that CCS progress continues to be stifled by changing government priorities, a weakening propensity to invest by the private sector and low community acceptability. This discussion will explore these challenges as well as identify further opportunities to support CCS.

Workshop

This side-event will provide an overview of the latest developments in the technological, policy and regulatory aspects of carbon capture and storage (CCS). The value propositions that support the business cases of investments in early large-scale CCS demonstration projects will be examined, as will the positive spillover effects associated with such demonstrations. The commercial pathways that can provide for the future wide-scale deployment of CCS will also be explored.

Exhibition

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) cites carbon capture and storage (CCS) as driving between 15-55 per cent of the required greenhouse gas emissions abatement by 2100.

Conference
China

The most definitive low carbon event in Asia - LCES 2013 will take place during November 8-10, 2013 in Chengdu, China. As one of the leading conferences for low carbon economy, technology, development and partnering, following on from the huge success of our previous meetings, LCES-2013 will contribute to offering a multidisciplinary and informative platform.

The Global CCS Institute was pleased to run the last of a three-part webinar series on CO2 storage. This webinar series was presented in Spanish, and is part of the Global CCS Institute’s capacity development program with the Mexican Academic Council of Earth Science Schools on the education of carbon capture and storage (CCS).

This webinar focused on ‘Fundamentals of monitoring CO2 injected underground’. The Institute is pleased that Vanessa Nuñez, Research Scientist Associate at the Gulf Coast Carbon Center of the University of Texas at Austin’s Bureau of Economic Geology, presented this webinar series.

North West Redwater Partnership (NWR) is building the world’s first direct to fuels bitumen refinery to combine gasification technology with an integrated carbon capture and storage program. The project was proposed to meet the rising demand for upgrading of increasing bitumen production from the Alberta oil sands and for production of low-carbon fuels with reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
