Date 17th-20th September 2013
Following the success of PCCC1 in Abu Dhabi, 2011 and the inception of 12 International Post Combustion Capture Network series since 2000, the PCCC2 Conference was held in Bergen, 2013. This conference series has proved to be a very important gathering for post-combustion capture experts to share their knowledge, findings and expertise. PCCC2 continued the forum to discuss the various issues related to post-combustion capture technologies status and development. PCCC2 will provide an opportunity to encourage technology providers and developers to share their experiences and knowledge.In addition to the technical programme, a special session celebrating the first year of Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM). The UK press recently visited the Centre - a full article can be found on page 11 of our newsletter. At the end of the conference delegates also had the opportunity to visit TCM.
