IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme


19th-21st October 2021


The IEAGHG Post Combustion Capture Conference (PCCC) series has established itself as the world’s leading conference series addressing post combustion CO2 capture. Each conference is dedicated to sharing and publicising progress on all aspects of the technology, from innovative research to demonstration and beyond, from new and improved solvents to novel separation technologies, from technology cost to environmental impact. Given the recognition it has achieved, the conference series has become a magnet for the presentation of high calibre papers and posters and, as a consequence, for all those wishing simply for an update on the global status of post combustion capture. 

As guardian of the PCCC series, IEAGHG is now embarking on the organisation of the 6th Post-Combustion Capture Conference (PCCC-6). PCCC-6 will be hosted as a virtual conference by the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) from 19–21 October 2021.

Submit your abstracts »

PCCC-6 Abstracts template »


When submitting your work we recommend an abstract should be 1 to 2 pages in length including diagrams and references. Please ensure you use the PCCC-6 abstract template and remember to save as a PDF to upload in the abstract submission portal.

If you are intending to submit multiple abstracts with alternative presenters from your account then we would strongly suggest you ask the intended presenter to submit the abstract by creating his/her own account. As once submitted, all communications relating to the conference are directed only to the submitting author not any co-authors or alternative presenters. Abstracts must be submitted by the closing date of 30th April 2021.
