WCEE’s Lunch & Learn Series and the U.S. Energy Association present
Does Carbon Capture and Storage Help Meet CO2 Reduction Goals?
Perspectives from the Illinois Basin – Decatur Project
Dr. Sallie Greenberg will discuss how carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) can provide the scale necessary to limit increase in global temperature by 2°C and help the US meet its Paris target of reducing GHG by 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2025.Dr. Greenberg will bring insights into The Illinois Basin – Decatur Project (IBDP) – a million tonne deep saline CO2 geologic storage demonstration project led by the Midwest Geologic Sequestration Consortium, and funded by the US Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory. The project is unique because it is one of the only full-scale bioenergy CCS (BECCS) demonstration projects to-date.
Dr. Greenberg will highlight the results and challenges of upscaling carbon capture and storage projects, touching on issues, such as permitting, public engagement, policy implications for CCUS, and the vital role this technology holds in meeting emission reduction targets.
This is a Lunch & Learn (i.e. brown-bag) event; beverages and dessert will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
