CCUS Commercial Deployment: What Will It Take To Make It Happen?

About this event:

The Greater Houston region has emerged as a global focus area for accelerating carbon capture, utilization and storage research and technology. However, questions emerge in terms of the required infrastructure and regulatory policy needed to realize climate goals.

To that end, the CCS Alliance and the Greater Houston Partnership’s Houston Energy Transition Initiative commissioned UH Energy and its Center for Carbon Management in Energy (CCME) to assess the necessary infrastructure that would be required for such broad commercial deployment of CCUS. Through this research and analysis comes an essential roadmap that our region – and others – can follow in order to achieve these ambitious goals. We urge members of industry and our community to join us Dec. 7 at the University of Houston for a half-day symposium where we will roll out the findings along with key insights from panelists and guest speakers that will aid this endeavor. Lunch will be served and a networking opportunity will follow the presentations.
