Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage Forum

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage Forum

Accelerating Net-Zero Emissions with CCUS

May 11-12, 2022 | Online :: Central Time

Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is a hot topic, as countries around the globe struggle to reduce CO₂ emissions and reduce production of greenhouse gas. Research conducted by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded that carbon capture is an essential technology in the fight to mitigate climate change. However, CCUS systems and facilities are historically underutilized and underdeveloped, with only about two dozen existing today. 

The Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage Forum will detail the increasing role that Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage (CCUS) will play in transition to a net-zero carbon economy. Experts will discuss the latest technology advances, research findings, and implementation of projects. Stakeholders will focus on strategies for making the economics of carbon capture acceptable and accessible. Register now to explore how we can rapidly accelerate the deployment and commercialization of carbon-removal technologies as a key solution on the pathway to net-zero carbon emissions.

Learning Outcomes

This virtual forum will provide attendees an opportunity to:

  • Examine how CCUS can contribute to net-zero emissions
  • Review details of the Section 45Q tax credit
  • Identify whether and how primacy will expedite the energy transition to a net-zero energy economy
  • Develop strategies for creating a circular carbon economy
  • Hear the latest details on three U.S. Carbon Capture projects
  • Discover the legal underpinnings that frame risk, uncertainty, and investment in CO2 utilization and storage infrastructure and projects
  • Develop an understanding of the economics of CCUS, including long-term liability and financial assurance

9:00 – 9:30 a.m. :: CCUS: Pathways to Decarbonization

The four main ways in which CCUS can contribute to the transition of the global energy system to net-zero emissions are tackling emissions from existing energy assets, providing a platform for low-carbon hydrogen production, a solution for sectors with hard-to-abate emissions, and removing carbon from the atmosphere. The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) is focused on maturing high impact carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies that enhance low-carbon energy and approaches to carbon management, in an effort to achieve a net-zero goal by mid-century. This discussion will map the pathway to decarbonization across a variety of sectors and highlight the most promising technologies NETL is pursuing.

Joseph Stoffa, Technology Manager, Carbon Conversion, National Energy Technology Laboratory(NETL)

9:30 – 10:00 a.m. :: Keynote Address: The Department of Energy’s Priorities in Carbon Management

Adam Wong, Director for Strategic Engagement, Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM)

John Litynski, P.E., Director for Carbon Transport & Storage, Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM)

10:40 – 11:00 a.m. :: Morning break

11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. :: The Role of the Section 45Q Tax Credit

The Internal Revenue Code’s carbon oxide sequestration credit, better known as 45Q, is an economic incentive that aims to promote major investments across the energy landscape. 45Q offers a tax credit for each metric ton of carbon captured and sequestered, depending on timing and type of project. The measure has drawn a lot of attention in recent months, both from those who see it as a tool to aid in the energy transition and the push for cleaner energy, as well as those who see the potential for the credit to help support low-carbon project economics. 

Dr. Richard Esposito, R&D Program Manager, Geosciences & Carbon Management, Southern Company

12:00 – 12:45 p.m. :: Lunch Break

12:45 – 1:30 p.m. :: Creating a Circular Carbon Economy

The urgency of the climate crisis has put us on the edge of a new industrial era where CO2 will be the feedstock and clean electricity the energy source to produce materials that are currently made from oil, harnessing the basis of the climate crisis as a possible climate solution.

Freya Burton, Chief Sustainability and People Officer, LanzaTech

1:30 – 1:45 pm :: Afternoon Break

1:45 – 3:45 pm :: Case Studies: Pilot Programs & Current Projects

Large Scale Capture Projects in Illinois

Dr. Kevin O’Brien, Director, Illinois Sustainable Technology Center

Houston Carbon Capture Hub

3:45 – 4:45 pm :: Carbon Capture and State Permitting Primacy: Regulatory Fast-Track to Net Zero

Momentum is rapidly building for carbon capture and a net-zero carbon future. States heavy in carbon resources are applying Primacy from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over permitting for CO2 storage injection wells. North Dakota and Wyoming have been granted primacy, Louisiana recently submitted its application with EPA, the Texas Legislature passed legislation to pave the way, and New Mexico has begun initial discussions with the EPA. This discussion will cover what is primacy, what are the economic incentives for a state to request it, and whether and how primacy will expediate the energy transition to a net-zero energy economy.

9:00 -10:00 a.m. :: International Regulatory and Policy Challenges Facing CCUS

With expanded interest in CCUS and the urgency of decarbonization, it is important to examine CCUS within the context of international environmental law.  This session will discuss the role of CCUS within the context of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and will look at how the Clean Development Mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol supported CCUS along with potential opportunities for CCUS under the Paris Agreement.

Seth Kerschner, Partner, White & Case

10:00 – 10:45 a.m. :: Carbon Markets for Direct Air Capture (DAC)

The first large-scale DAC plant is now being developed in the United States by 1PointFive, using Carbon Engineering’s technology. The plant will capture up to 1 Mt CO2 each year and is planned to become operational by the end of 2024.  This session will look at how DAC can help cap the cost of getting to net zero and how international carbon markets are developing to include DAC with geologic sequestration and low-carbon fuels from atmospheric CO2.

Lori Guetre, VP & Head of Business Development, Carbon Engineering Ltd.

10:45 – 11:00 a.m. :: Morning break

11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. :: Business/Economics of CCUS

After multiple decades of demonstrating the scaling CCUS technology multiple forces are now combining to make large scale investment in CCUS commercially viable. Yet as CCUS emerges as a new asset investment class there are significant questions about what business models will be viable and how companies can play in this space. This session will focus on how the business opportunity for CCUS is developing and what will shape the commercial landscape going forward.
