03/27/2012 Archived Entry: "Carbon Capture 101 Workshop Scheduled for September 2012"

The Carbon Capture 101 Workshop is scheduled for September 25 and 26, 2012 in Lexington, Kentucky.

As the global demand for affordable energy continues to increase, electric power producers face a challenging demand to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions. In order to lower CO2 emissions in a cost-effective manner, implementation of various CCS technologies in coal-fired power plants will be a likely scenario in the next 20 years.

Accordingly, this workshop will offer a series of informative technical presentations that will provide an overview of carbon capture technologies and recent research progress. The intended audience will be made up primarily of power industry engineers and scientists along with other key stakeholders wishing to become more informed in carbon management issues and recent technical advances. The workshop objectives are to:

- Present an overview of the near-term carbon capture technologies;
- Identify technical barriers and knowledge gaps in carbon capture systems; and
- Demonstrate a logical method for evaluating solvent/sorbent selection and their impact on plant efficiency.
