CCS: Regaining Momentum


Syndey: 20 February 2012 - 21 February 2012

Organiser: IEA

Background

The workshop was developed as an annex event to the 61st meeting of the IEA Committee on Energy Research and Technology. It was organised by the IEA and hosted by the Australian Government’s Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism. The workshop brought together a mix of IEA Member governments and CCS specialists from industry, academia and research institutes. Its objectives were to provide a platform for exchange of information and to identify areas for further work by the IEA. The programme addressed the current status of CCS technologies, potential synergies and co-benefits of CCS with biomass and enhanced oil recovery, current knowledge and issues for global CO2 storage potential and lessons learnt from various projects around the world.
