November 14, 2022 - November 18, 2022

Mines Global Future Initiative and the Payne Institute for Public Policy are pleased to be co-hosts for CCUS Conference in Golden, CO on Monday, November 14 – Friday, November 18, 2022.

This five day conference will bring together 40 graduate students and 30 scientists, engineers and CCUS experts from Norway, other countries in Europe, Asia, South America and USA. Travel and accommodation for approved student participants, after applications have been evaluated, are paid for by NFiP. Speakers are provided by the partner institutions and industry. Faculty and industry representatives interested in participating while covering their own expenses also need to fill in the application form in order to ensure sufficient logistic capacity at the event venue.

The Whole Value Chain approach covers all aspects of CCUS, including capture, transport, utilization and storage of CO2. Successful global CO2 storage in the amounts needed to mitigate global warming requires industry participation. To realize industrial CO2 storage, sustainable economy, with opportunity to generate revenues, is crucial. CO2 EOR provides such an economic opportunity and will simultaneously store the huge amounts of CO2 required. This will provide synergy between the need for increased energy production and the need for reduction in emission of anthropogenic CO2, by storage in sedimentary rocks.

For more information, or with questions please contact GEFI CCUS Program Manager Anna Littlefield, annalittlefield@mines.edu
