Third International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Removal (ICCDR-3)

Cambridge, Massachusetts/USA, September 9 - 11, 1996

First Announcement and Call for Papers

The First International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Removal (ICCDR-1) was held in March 1992, in Amsterdam and represented the first major gathering of researchers in the field of CO2 capture, disposal, and utilization. Two years later, in October 1994, ICCDR-2 was held in Kyoto. Once again, the leading researchers in the field presented their latest findings. ICCDR-3, hosted in the United States, will continue the tradition of excellence established in The Netherlands and Japan. In addition to the latest research finding , the conference will examine where the future may take us. Invited speakers will discuss related topics in the field of climate change.

The conference is being organized by the MIT Energy Laboratory, in cooperation with the Organizing and Program Committees and will be held on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Main sponsors are the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

You are invited to submit papers on research, development, demonstration, analysis, or economics related to the following topics:

CO2 Capture

Separation and recovery techniques including absorption, adsorption, membrane separation, and cryogenic fractionation.

Integration of CO2 recovery into power plant designs, including replacing air burning with oxygen burning and integrated coal gasification combined cycle power plants.

Capture from non-power plant sources in the industrial, transportation, or building sectors.

CO2 Disposal

Disposal of the CO2 into the ocean, depleted oil and gas wells, underground aquifers, etc.

Transporting the CO2 from the source to the disposal site.

CO2 Utilization and Recycling

Opportunities for economic utilization of captured COEuropean Information Society Conference 2002 .

Large-scale utilization of CO2, usingeither chemical or biological processing.

Cofiring of biomass in power plants.

Implementation Issues

Current or proposed research, development, and/or demonstration projects.

Economic, environmental, and/or legalconsiderations.

Policy Issues

Relationship of CO2 control technologies to other mitigation options.

Life-cycle and/or externality analyses.

Mitigation impact of CO2 capture, disposal, and utilization technologies.

Abstracts are due March 1, 1996, and must be mailed to the ICCDR-3 Secretariat. The conference language will be English. (Source: Conference Announcement)
