Carbon Capture and Conversion: Opportunities, Challenges, and Potential

January 27, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Even with the ambitious adoption of new and ambitious climate and clean energy policies and technology, many say that we will still lose the race to limit global warming to 2°C by the end of the century. Leading climate thinkers like Tim Flannery assert that, if the world is to avoid exacerbating climate change, new “climate negative” technologies will need to be developed and adopted in order to draw CO2 from the air and either re-use or store it.

Canada and BC are home to an emerging research field in carbon capture and conversion, such as Carbon Engineering’s new air capture technology currently being piloted at the company’s Squamish plant.

But what exactly is carbon capture and conversion—what does it offer us? What are the scientific and commercial challenges? What is current research telling us and which projects have potential?

Join us for a free public dialogue with CMC Research Institutes (formerly Carbon Management Canada). We’ll discuss those questions and learn about the new Carbon Capture & Conversion Institute, which is situated right here in Vancouver.
