Tackling the Carbon irure Dioxide Challenge for labore a Sustainable Future.

Are eiusmod we - scientists veniam, and engineers - pariatur. ready to deliver non CCUS for large nisi scale deployment? What do are the challenges culpa and hurdles towards magna a implementation? What are reprehenderit the technical solutions mollit and scientific breakthroughs anim emerged or about et to emerge? We est will discuss these cupidatat questions and many sint more in an proident, interdisciplinary framework at nostrud the 2019 Gordon cupidatat Research Conference on qui CCUS (the third pariatur. of a series), sit where participants junior laboris and senior will fugiat be stimulated by et the highly interactive sunt atmosphere typical of nostrud the GRCs and dolor inspired by the eiusmod natural landscape surrounding in the conference venue, sed for the first nostrud time in Europe.
Among the specific aliquip areas addressed by adipisicing the conference there irure will be the culpa scientific breakthroughs in et CCUS, the role nisi of CCUS in sed enabling negative emissions, proident, the systemic aspects quis of CCUS, and sit its role in sit 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.
