The congress aims to deliberate upon the challenges and opportunities faced by Petroleum, Coal and Power sectors in the wake of volatile energy market and the environmental concerns. The congress shall focus on the entire spectrum of new Green Technologies that can help to ensure clean, reliable and affordable energy supply.
As one of Europe’s leading events dedicated to the coal-based power industry, COAL-GEN Europe 2012 will present an informative conference and comprehensive exhibition showcasing the latest technologies such as gasification, oxy fuel and carbon capture and storage (CCS) to reduce CO2 emissions and meet Europe’s 20:20:20 target. The event will also highlight the need for continued investment and opportunities for enhancing the performance of coal plants to meet the world’s pressing energy needs.
John Uphoff, Project Director, Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center, and Justin Vala, Manager of Process Engineering at Tenaska, led a Global CCS Institute webinar about the Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center.
The role of CCS technologies in meeting the challenge of climate change has been gaining increasing support. It is widely recognised that fossil fuels will continue to play a significant role in meeting energy demand globally in the immediate future, and the potential of CCS as a crucial carbon-mitigation technology has been recognised in both EC and UK policy developments.
This inaugural conference draws professionals from all engineering disciplines to share expertise and provide perspectives on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to changing climate. The program will focus on engineering perspectives including technologies, strategies, policies, and management systems.
