The Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
The current CO2 emissions and the unprecedented levels in the atmosphere are a pressing environmental issue which needs to be addressed and considerable efforts have been devoted to develop CCUS technologies to mitigate greenhouse gas-induced climate change. This challenge will most likely require a combination of engineered and natural solutions which aim to remove, utilize and/or store CO2. Even though promising data has been presented and discussed during the past seminars, numerous barriers remain to be overcome, including technical feasibility at a large scale as well as financial, political and social concerns.
This seminar has the goal of highlighting the relationships between different CCUS technologies which have the potential to help reach the net-zero emissions goals by 2050. We will focus on all aspects of the process: from CO2 capture and removal to its utilization and/or storage/sequestration, and most importantly, applicability of these technologies at a large scale. The programmed discussion sessions, poster presentations, and informal gatherings, will provide an ideal opportunity to the young researchers to interact, discuss and promote interdisciplinary collaborations in the different CCUS research areas presented.
We are working diligently on our program for this upcoming 2023 CCUS GRC and GRS. We have been able to raise funding to support both young scientists and others who may require financial assistance. If you are interested in receiving funding, please contact the GRC chairs and/or the GRS chairs at the links provided if you do not already have their contact information. We are looking forward to being together again in person and hope all who are interested can join us!
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by February 19, 2023. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
