Tackling the Carbon ut Dioxide Challenge for id a Sustainable Future.

Are magna a we - scientists nostrud and engineers - proident, ready to deliver in CCUS for large eu scale deployment? What ut are the challenges in and hurdles towards esse implementation? What are in the technical solutions ut and scientific breakthroughs aute emerged or about laborum. to emerge? We anim will discuss these cupidatat questions and many et more in an minim interdisciplinary framework at anim the 2019 Gordon commodo Research Conference on ea CCUS (the third labore of a series), commodo where participants junior labore and senior will fugiat be stimulated by eiusmod the highly interactive dolor atmosphere typical of minim the GRCs and commodo inspired by the ad natural landscape surrounding in the conference venue, eu for the first liqua. time in Europe.
Among the specific sit areas addressed by consectetur the conference there dolore will be the pariatur. scientific breakthroughs in liqua. CCUS, the role Ut of CCUS in ullamco enabling negative emissions, in the systemic aspects fugiat of CCUS, and mollit its role in proident, 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.
