Webinar
Organised by: 
Global CCS Institute

This webinar was held on Thursday 17 July 2014, and provided an opportunity to hear Peta Ashworth and Dr. Anne-Maree Dowd (CSIRO) reflect on their ambitious attempt to synthesise the key findings from a comprehensive four-year-long body of social research into carbon capture and storage (CCS).

 

The report, Synthesis of CCS Social Research: Reflections and State of Play 2013 was designed to provide an accessible summary and guide into the emerging thinking and best practices for those working to improve public understanding and acceptance of CCS technology.

This webinar presented the major findings of a CSIRO-led investigation into the potential air quality impacts of amine-based post-combustion carbon capture (PCC) technology. The study was commissioned by the Global Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Institute to expand knowledge on environmental impacts of the capture process, the study measures actual emissions as well providing a case study into air quality at the AGL Loy Lang PCC Plant in Victoria, Australia.  The study aimed to address uncertainty about the types/quantities of pollutants released during PCC plant operations and what their acceptable emissions levels were. Understanding this would allow industry and regulators to develop appropriate health and safety practices around PCC plants. The research was based on data collected at CSIRO’s PCC pilot plant at the AGL Loy Yang brown coal-fired power plant in Victoria,  Australia and from atmospheric degradation experiments in CSIRO’s smog chamber in New South Wales, Australia.

This second webinar was held on Thursday 3rd July, for anyone who wasn't able to join us for the previous webinar held on Wednesday 2nd July.

This webinar provided an overview on the recently launched Decarboni.se knowledge sharing platform.  Decarboni.se aims to be the best place for people to learn from over 400 organisations working to decarbonise the economy. On Decarboni.se you’ll find quality information and detailed descriptions of techniques and lessons learnt from experts around the world. This webinar presented why Decarboni.se was built, how you can use it and how it improves the knowledge sharing process for clean energy.  We also presented how we’re reaching out to people (including those outside the CCS community) to tell them about the approach and get them involved in the knowledge sharing process.
