UT Austin to Host 2014 GHGT-12 Conference

UT Austin has been selected to host the 12th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Technologies (GHGT-12) October 5-9 2014 at the Austin Convention Center.

Since its inception in 1997, the GHGT series has developed into the leading international conference on greenhouse gas technologies addressing climate change mitigation options. The conference is held every two years on an informal rotation between major cities in Europe, Asia, and North America and attracts more than 1,500 attendees. Leaders from the scientific, industrial, and policy communities exchange new knowledge, information and ideas on reducing greenhouse gases.

Gary Rochelle, the Carol & Henry Groppe Professor in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering, is an expert on carbon capture from coal-fired power plants and co-chair of the GHGT Steering Committee.

“The GHGT conference is the premier international platform for cutting-edge research and the latest developments in carbon capture and storage, a leading technology that will reduce greenhouse gases and curb global warming,” said Rochelle. “Austin’s selection as host city for 2014 showcases UT Austin as a global leader in greenhouse gas technologies.”

The conference program will comprise both oral and poster presentations with organized panel discussions and issue forums to discuss scientific and political aspects around CCS topics. The conference will also provide ample time and space for the delegates to meet and network. There will be a welcome reception, two poster sessions showcasing research developments, and a conference dinner.
