More About the Workshop:
This year’s workshop activities will focus on reducing emissions in the industry. As the US and global community works toward developing technologies and methods to mitigate the release of carbon dioxide, it is important to understand the processes and technologies in place to do so. Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) is one advanced method for mitigating the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from fossil-fueled power stations.
These activities will help teachers and their students understand why CCUS is part of the solution and how it will impact energy supply, demand, and cost. In the workshop you will hear from industry speakers about reducing emissions and visit the OTC exhibition so you can see first hand the technologies behind the industry’s push to net zero emissions.
