Meeting participants will discuss carbon management topics, including carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and front-end engineering design (FEED) studies for both power and industrial sectors, during the first of six project review meetings to be held in August.
The virtual session “Integrated CCUS Projects and FEED Studies,” will take place Monday, Aug. 2, and Tuesday, Aug. 3, and feature many of the Lab’s collaborative efforts with external partners around the nation that are helping to achieve the Biden Administration’s net-zero carbon emission goals in the power sector by 2035 and the broader economy by 2050.
The two-day event will feature introductory remarks and plenary presentations from Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management Jennifer Wilcox and NETL Director Brian Anderson. A wide array of stakeholders will also participate in panel discussions and presentations on a variety of topics, including progress updates on carbon capture and storage FEED studies, carbon storage regional partnerships, and updates on policy, financing and infrastructure development for widespread and rapid deployment of CCUS.

“Bringing together all of these stakeholders for one virtual meeting will promote crosscutting partnerships to accelerate commercial demonstration of CCUS technologies for both industrial and power sectors,” said Dan Hancu, NETL technology manager for Carbon Capture. “We’ve had a lot of successes collaborating with these partners, and we are excited to share their work.”
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
