Training Event - Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS)
Fossil fuels still supply the bulk (85%) of the global energy demand. Low-carbon alternatives are needed, but carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) can play an important role on the way there. Seven professionals from the Netherlands and Belgium aim to present a broad overview of technologies with different levels of technological maturity.
This event is open to everyone including
- Students who can benefit from a broad introduction to the subject.
- Industrials who wish to find out if there are valid CCUS solutions for their sector/company.
- RD&D professionals who may have a good knowledge on some CCUS technologies, but lack almost any knowledge on others.
- Political and (non-)governmental people who wish to arm themselves with (more) background knowledge before making their mark on society.
The event is primarily technical in nature. While the contents are not advanced, they can be best understood with a basic knowledge of science or engineering.
Lunch and coffee are offered at no cost to the participants.
