Special Symposium

Cleantech 2014 features a special symposium on carbon capture, carbon storage and related technologies. This event, in common with many symposia at this meeting, will include sessions focused on new technology solutions, business and implementation of carbon capture and storage (sharing of best practices, demonstration projects and case studies), and will also include sessions highlighting innovative materials, ideas, and process developments which may lead to future breakthroughs. Keynote sessions will highlight needs, opportunities and early success stories in this critical field.

Your submissions are invited in the following topic areas:

Topics & Application Areas

  • Innovative materials for carbon capture & storage
  • Demonstration projects & case studies
  • Technologies for carbon capture, scrubbing
  • Carbon sequestration – geological, ocean
  • Carbon dioxide recycling
  • Best practice for CCS
  • Other
