Host: Dr. Nada Anid, Dean, School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, NYIT

Given the abundant supply of coal in China and the challenges of substantially scaling up renewable power, fossil fuels are likely to remain a significant source of electricity in this country for decades to come. To limit CO2 emissions from large point sources such as power plants, one promising option is Carbon Capture and Storage: capturing, compressing and transporting CO2 and injecting it into carefully chosen and monitored underground geological formations. This session will bring together experts from different sectors to discuss the status of technologies and efforts to safely and reliably capture and sequester CO2 underground on a scale large.
