15th CO2GeoNet Open Forum: ACCELERATING CCS – Transitioning from millions to billions of tonnes of stored CO2
September 19 @ 8:30 am - September 22 @ 5:20 pm
CO2 Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) has an essential role to play in meeting our climate targets. The Paris Agreement represents an important step towards keeping global temperature rise well below 2°C.
Following on from this, the IPCC 1.5 special report highlighted different emission pathways to limit warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels at the end of the century, all of which require net zero CO2 emissions by around 2050. CO2 storage is a necessary part of the solution.
The 15th Open Forum will focus on the progress made and how we can accelerate CO2 storage to help meet climate targets.
The event will share experience from projects where CO2 is being stored, highlight new projects coming onstream and look at how CO2 storage can be accelerated and upscaled to realise its role in meeting our ambitious climate goals.
New developments around CCUS and opportunities for the CO2 Storage community to engage and to support the business case for CO2 Capture and Storage will be presented and discussed.
