LAUNCH CCUS progress shared at PCCC-6
Scientists from the LAUNCH CCUS project will be presenting their progress on research into CO2 capture solvent management at this year’s Post-Combustion Capture Conference (PCCC-6) next month.
The IEAGHG’s PCCC conference series, which takes place online this year from 19–21 October, brings together the world’s leading experts on post combustion CO2 capture for the purpose of sharing and promoting current developments, including technological innovation and demonstration.
Oral presentations by partners from NTNU, RWE, SINTEF, TNO and University of Texas at Austin will explore current understanding of the degradation of amines used for post-combustion CO2 capture, methods for managing solvent degradation, and emissions countermeasures.
The three-day event will be hosted in collaboration with UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC). The full conference agenda can be found here.
