IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme

67 JG imageSeptember has so far been a great month for IEAGHG. On the 1st of the month we were pleased to announce the launch of the IJGGC Special Issue commemorating 10 years since the IPCC SRCCS was launched.

On the 8th and 9th we held our third Post Combustion Capture Conference in Regina Canada with our co-hosts SaskPower. We had 185 registrants for the 2 day event with 65 technical papers presented and 30 posters. We also had three excellent plenary speakers; John Litynski from the USDOE, Terfumi Kawasaki from JCOAL and a update on TCM from Roy Vardeim the new managing Director of that facility.

On the 10th we attended the 2015 SaskPower seminar, where I was honoured to give the plenary lecture. To follow that our joint report with SaskPower was released at the meeting and the hjosirljosirts presented to the 200 attendees.

The 11th was a quiet day we took part in the Saskatchewan Grand CCS tour going to Boundary Dam 3 CCS Demonstration plant, where we were also given a virtual guided of the Shand PCC test facility. All that was followed by a visit to the Aquistore CO2 injection project.

In addition staff from IEAGHG attended the ISO meeting in Oslo, Norway thus assisting in developing international standards.
From here on it will get a bit quieter but not a bad way to kick off a month.
