Overview of Global Carbon Capture Use/Storage Projects,

and Prospects for Furthering International Cooperation

Shannon Angielski, Executive Director, Coal Utilization Research Council 
Douglas Carter, Independent Contractor & former Director, Office of Planning & Environmental Analysis, Office of Fossil Energy, DOE

Thursday, May 19, 2016 ~ 2-3 pm Eastern

In the aftermath of the195 nations meeting at the Conference of the Paris last December, how does the global status of Carbon Capture Use/Storage (CCUS) technology development support new carbon policies that may be put in place around the world – or does it? With worldwide coal demand already increasing to almost 8 billion tons in 2014 and the expectation of further growth, is there a coalescing of commitment to achieve broad deployment of CCUS worldwide as a cost-effective decarbonization strategy? What are the prospects and what will stimulate timely, effective international development?

Join us as Shannon Angielski and Doug Carter discuss the new global CCUS study completed by the Coal Utilization Research Council in concert with Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Development Organization (NEDO). They will address: 

Lessons learned from successful and unsuccessful CCUS projects around the world 
Government support and financial incentives
Perspectives from the private sector
Options for multinational collaboration and next steps

The Coal Utilization Research Council (CURC) promotes research, development, demonstration and widespread deployment of technologies that will support continued and long-term use of coal. CURC educates and advocates for coal-related technology development and use that will continue cost-effective and environmentally acceptable means by which America’s most abundant fossil fuel can be used to provide low cost energy and coal-derived products for the United State economy as well as worldwide.


The American Coal Council’s Coal Q&A Program provides a forum to address critical issues affecting the U.S. coal industry ~ including coal producers, consumers and transporters.  Each program begins with a topic briefing by a leading industry analyst or representative, followed by a Q&A session.
