Organising Projects

Summary

With over seventry registered attendees, the event was an invaluable networking opportunity for Horizon2020 CCS related calls.

The Forum consisted of thirty-two oral presentations grouped according to six themes:

  • Transport and Safety
  • Capture
  • Process Optimisation and Techno-economic Considerations
  • Thermophysical Properties
  • Storage
  • Combustion

Presentations were made from representatives of seven different European countries, in addition to Qatar, the United States of America, Japan and Israel.

Copies of oral presentations can be downloaded
