Tackling the Carbon do Dioxide Challenge for non a Sustainable Future.

Are mollit we - scientists culpa and engineers - et ready to deliver minim CCUS for large consequat. scale deployment? What in are the challenges enim and hurdles towards est implementation? What are voluptate the technical solutions ex and scientific breakthroughs aute emerged or about elit, to emerge? We labore will discuss these sint questions and many ut more in an dolore interdisciplinary framework at sunt the 2019 Gordon in Research Conference on id CCUS (the third ea of a series), dolor where participants junior elit, and senior will nisi be stimulated by cillum the highly interactive minim atmosphere typical of aute the GRCs and liqua. inspired by the minim natural landscape surrounding sunt the conference venue, ullamco for the first do time in Europe.
Among the specific liqua. areas addressed by quis the conference there consectetur will be the sint scientific breakthroughs in ut CCUS, the role nostrud of CCUS in pariatur. enabling negative emissions, non the systemic aspects sunt of CCUS, and liqua. its role in mollit selected industrial sectors.

Detailed DescriptionCarbon Capture, Utilization and Storage systems play a central role in political debates, technological efforts and scientific developments around climate change, as a consequence of two factors. First, with the Paris Agreement, countries have agreed to hold global mean warming well below 2°C and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C. Second, scientists have shown that any limit to global mean warming implies a maximum cumulative amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the so called carbon budget. Such factors imply that science and technology (as well as political will and financial means) are needed not only to reduce emissions but also to generate negative emissions (true removal of atmospheric carbon dioxide), in case of carbon budget overshoot.
