CETCCUS CONFERENCE ON CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY FOR CARBON CAPTURE UTILIZATION AND STORAGE

When:From Sun 24/09 to Wed 27/09

Where:HOTEL NOVOTEL, CLERMONT-FERRAND, FRANCE

Who:Open to the general public

Take advantage of the opportunities at the international CETCCUS conference (Cutting-Edge Technology for Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage) in Clermont-Ferrand on September 24–27, 2017.

CETCCUS will bring together scientists, engineers, and policymakers concerned with all aspects of carbon capture utilization and storage. Participants will present their latest research and projects, with ample time for questions, answers, and discussion.

 

Today it is widely accepted that increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are affecting climate change on a global level. One way to reduce fixed-source carbon emissions is to curb the use of fossil-based fuels. Of course, implementing eco-efficient processes and alternative energy sources is also crucial. However, existing fixed-source carbon emissions must be reduced.

Carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) is one was to achieve this. CO2 is selectively captured at the stack before industrial emissions are released into the atmosphere. The purified CO2 can then be used for specific applications or stored deep underground in geological formations. 

 

CETCCUS will address the following topics:

  • Carbon Capture

New processes and solvents for CO2 removal

Physical and thermodynamic properties of potential solvents

  • Transportation of CO2

Compression

Pipe flow

Physical, thermodynamic and kinetic properties

  • Utilization of Carbon Dioxide

Converting CO2 into commercial products

Food-grade CO2

  • Injection of CO2

Wells, completions, cementation

Enhanced oil recovery

Behavior of CO2 in the Reservoir

Reservoir characterization

Physical properties of carbon dioxide (in particular the effect of impurities)

Flow through the reservoir

Mineralization of CO2

Seismic activity related to fluid injection

  • Related subjects

Reducing the cost of CCUS

Corrosion Lessons learned from acid gas injection – a more mature technology

Current CO2 market study CCS market study
