The EcoGeneration Clean Energy Seminar held in Melbourne will focus on exclusive insights into the Federal Government’s Clean Energy Future plan and its associated carbon pricing mechanism, including analysis of:
• New financing models • How to leverage public and private investment • Interaction with international carbon markets
Leaders and experts in carbon pricing policy will instruct seminar delegates on how to make the most of the opportunities presented by the pricing mechanism, emissions trading and clean energy funding.
Mineral carbonation presents a compelling case for the large-scale, safe, and permanent storage of carbon dioxide from industrial processes. It happens in nature, but slowly, where it is called 'rock weathering'. Its products are benign, and the global capacity of suitable feedstocks for mineral carbonation could sequester all anthropogenic emissions of CO2 for several hundred years. Can we make it happen faster? Can we develop commercial processes at scale, and fast enough? What would this cost?
ACI's Carbon Capture & Storage 2012 one-day conference is taking place on 12 March 2012 in Abu Dhabi. The one-day event will discuss the development of innovative CCS strategies in the Middle East. Abu Dhabi is the ideal location for senior representatives from the industry to discuss CCS strategies in a prime CO2 - EOR environment.
GEO 2012 will feature an outstanding exhibition of hardware and services coupled with a comprehensive technical conference programme which ensures a valuable exchange of knowledge among managing, operating and supplying companies.
Every year, the event will feature a specialised academic program for the mining and energy sector in order to make a detailed analysis of the coal face of new markets, the share of coal in the generation expansion plan for electricity, context of world coal royalties, environmental policies and the demand for coal in the electricity sector in Europe, among other topics of interest to industry.
Now in its fifth year, this event is brings together policymakers and stakeholders in the Australian energy industry to debate contemporary issues and highlight future directions taking account of the range of technological and other influences that will progressively lead Australia to a low-carbon economy. Both domestic and international issues will be discussed. The Minister for Resources, Energy and Tourism, the Hon Martin Ferguson will present a keynote address in the morning.
Now in its third year, the event will once again gather professionals from industry, EU policymakers and other stakeholders for a debate on the progress of CCS in Europe. This year's discussions will centre on the implementation of the geological storage directive, the state of current financing and future roles for public subsidies, and will also explore the future applications and uses for CCS.
The Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT) conference series was formed in 1997 following the merger of the earlier series of International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Removal (ICCDR) and the Greenhouse Gas Mitigation options conference. IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEA GHG) are the guardians of the GHGT conferences which are held every two years. The conference series rotates between, North America, Europe and Asia.
