NASEO Study Tour and Workshop on Carbon Capture, Sequestration, Utilization and Emerging Clean Coal Technologies

June 13-14, 2018
Houston-Galveston Area Council
Houston, TX

NASEO, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy, is pleased to host an educational workshop on Carbon Capture, Sequestration, Utilization and Clean Coal Technologies for state energy officials on June 13-14, 2018 in Houston, Texas. This two-day workshop will educate and inform state energy officials about the latest clean coal and carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS) technologies, as well as emerging technologies that would allow for the domestic production of rare earth elements.  The workshop includes a study tour of one of the worlds most advanced and successful CCUS sites – the Petra Nova facility.  Together the technologies and projects that will be discussed can enhance the reliability, generation diversity, and affordability of the power system while addressing environmental and economic concerns. Workshop participants will also learn about policies and programs at the state and federal levels which support these technologies; explore opportunities in the United States for extraction of rare earth elements from coal and coal by-products which are vital to the development and manufacturing of modern technologies (e.g., electric vehicles, smartphones, solar batteries, fiber optics, etc.); and tour state-of-the-art demonstration projects utilizing advanced clean coal and CCUS technologies.
