Scope Our present dependence on fossil fuels means that, as our demand for energy inevitably increases, so do emissions of greenhouse gases, notably carbon dioxide (CO2). To avoid the obvious consequences on climate change, the concentration of such greenhouse gases in the atmosphere must be stabilized. But, as populations grow and economies develop, future demands almost ensure that energy will be one of the defining issues of this century. This unique set of (coupled) challenges also means that science and engineering have a unique opportunity – and a burgeoning challenge – to apply their understanding to provide sustainable energy solutions. Integrated carbon capture, and subsequent sequestration is generally advanced as the most promising option to tackle greenhouse gases in the short to medium term, and efficient conversion of CO2 into sustainable, synthetic hydrocarbon or carbonaceous fuels is regarded as a mid- to long-term strategy. This symposium provides an international forum to discuss the latest advances in scientific understanding and engineering development of current CO2 capture, conversion and sequestration technologies.
Papers are sought in all aspects of materials, process, design, modeling pertinent to CO2 capture, conversion and sequestration technologies, including, but not limited to, 1) selective CO2 capture based on the principles of physical and chemical absorption/ adsorption using liquid solvents, solid sorbents and membranes; 2) new materials and structure/property relationships; 3) electrochemical capture of CO2; 4) chemical conversion of CO2 into hydrocarbons; 5) electrochemical conversion of CO2 into hydrocarbons; 6) CO2 sequestration; 7) computational modeling and modeling-experiment connection. A symposium proceeding is planned to publish the content of accepted presentations.
