Please join the Center for Carbon Management in Energy (CCME) on June 12th for the first event in the Symposium Series 2019 on the “Monetization of Carbon: 45Q – Technology, Policy, and Legal”. The event will feature speakers from the marketplace that have insights from projects and experiences, providing opportunity for engagement during the presentations and networking activities throughout the day.

Symposium Overview

Carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) has become an ever-increasing area of impact in carbon management across all sectors of the energy market. Oil and Gas upstream, mid-stream and downstream: the petrochemical sector, as well as the electric power sector. The CO2 emissions that can be captured from these processes, can be utilized by making CO2 suitable for use in enhanced oil recovery and/or in the injection into geologic formations for safe, permanent storage.

Through the technical separation of CO2 from these processes, the delivery to geologic formations, the measurement and verification of the CO2 in the formation, and the legal and business responsibilities necessary for 45Q tax treatment creates a new business model in the marketplace that is positioned to make significant impact in carbon management and to the carbon footprint of the energy industry.

We will address the specific scientific and engineering challenges as well as legal business and policy requirements through our recognized set of external speakers that have been engaged with 45Q projects and development across the US. These presentations will enable the attendee to gain a thorough grasp of the entire set of challenges, discuss specific projects, and gain insight into the changing landscape and perspectives of thee experts that will address the attendees.
