In Energy hungry Asia, there is a pressing need to discuss, debate and more critically develop climate change mitigation measures, to counter growing levels of CO2 emissions. As a result, Asia now presents tremendous opportunities to develop viable CO2 capture, storage & utilization capabilities.
The importance of climate change mitigation in Asia will be addressed at upcoming CO2 Capture, Storage & Utilization conference, which will serve as a convening point for the government officials, experts and investors keen on fostering the development of a carbon capture & storage industry across Asia.
To be held on 5-6 March 2009 in Beijing, China, the conference will facilitate the debate, discussion & dialogue between technology developers/purveyors, the industry and government representatives on the development and deployment of viable carbon capture capacity in Asia-Pacific.
Shell which is currently taking a leading role in spearheading research and investment into Carbon Capture technology, will be presenting a paper on their perspectives & current participation in Carbon capture & sequestration at the Beijing conference.
Shell will be represented by Dr. Wolfgang Heidug, Special Advisor-CO2 policy at Shell Downstream Services International, who will also touch on Shell's role in climate change mitigation.
BP, which achieved an industry landmark when they established their carbon capture test facility in Algeria, will also be sharing perspectives on their project, and their future plans to develop their carbon capture capabilities. Dr. Tony Aspie, Senior Advisor (CO2 Storage) at BP Alternative Energy will share on the project implementation, legal, and financing challenges of developing and implementing their highly publicised In Salah CO2 storage project in Algeria. Dr. Aspie will also share on BP's ongoing activities in CCS, as well as the company's future plans.
Offering an Asian perspective at the conference, will be Ren Xiangkun, Deputy Director (Beijing Research Institute) at Shenhua Coal to Liquid & Chemical Co. Ltd, as he shares a progress report on Shenhua's CCS capacity development for their Coal-to-Liquids and Coal conversion projects.
Other key organizations sharing perspectives at the conference include World Resources Institute, Air Liquide, EcoSecurities, DNV Energy, BRGM, Udhe Shedden, Schlumberger Carbon Services, CISRO Energy, Administrative Center for China's Agenda 21 (ACCA21), Enviro Energy Int'l Holdings Ltd, Holcim Services Ltd, I.M Skaegen SE... plus many more
Key issues and technologies discussed at CO2 Capture, Sequestration & Utilization include:
- Integrating Coal-to-Liquids, Gas-to-Liquids and Power Generation with CCS
- Current International Cooperation/Partnership on CCS
- Environmental, Regulatory Framework and Incentives, Socio-Economics challenges
- Current CO2 Capture Technologies
- CO2 Geological Storage & Criteria for Site Mapping
- Other Applications of CO2
- Carbon Markets and Linkage with CCS
The CO2 Capture, Sequestration & Utilization conference will be preceded by the 6th CTLtec Asia conference, held on March 3-4, 2009 in Beijing. 6th CTLtec discusses the latest in the Coal-to-Liquid Fuels and Chemicals sector and Coal polygeneration sectors and sets the stage for the inaugural CO2 Capture, Sequestration & Utilization conference to discuss the need to develop carbon capture capacity in Asia.
Those seeking more information and opportunities to participate as delegates, media partners, exhibitors and / or sponsors at CO2 Capture, Sequestration & Utilization and 6th CTLtec Asia conferences are urged to submit their registrations, enquiries and proposals at http://www.cmtevents.com/?ev=090313 or contact Ms. Nadia Al Bahar, Marketing Manager at +65 6346 9114 or email at email@example.com.
