Creating space for transformative conversations

Public Carbon Talk: Carbon Capture and Conversion

January 27, 2016

What are the challenges, opportunities, and research pathways for carbon capture and conversion?

Canada and BC are home to an emerging research field in carbon capture and conversion. Carbon Engineering’s new air capture technology currently being piloted at the company’s Squamish plant is one such project.

But what exactly is carbon capture and conversion—what does it offer us? What are the scientific and commercial challenges? What is current research telling us, and which projects have potential?  

Join carbontalks for a free public dialogue with CMC Research Institutes (formerly Carbon Management Canada) and learn about the new Carbon Capture & Conversion Institute situated right here in Vancouver.

When: Wednesday, January 27 from 12:30 - 1:30 PM
Where: SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC, Room 7000
