The global assault to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide — the most prevalent of the greenhouse gases — is driving a radical transformation of energy markets. Development of no– or low–carbon sources of power and the electrification of the transportation sector will reduce how much CO2 is produced and released into the atmosphere.
But it will take more than Teslas, solar power and wind generation to reach decarbonization goals. CO2 produced from industrial processes like steelmaking, petrochemical crackers, cement plants, and ethanol production must be captured
and permanently stored deep underground, either in suitable geological formations or in oil and gas reservoirs through
EOR – enhanced oil recovery. But will the economics work? What kind of tax incentives will be required. What can happen today, and what must wait for improved technologies?
Where are the investment opportunities?
That is what It’s a Gas – CO2 is all about. In this Virtual Studio Session, to be held August 10, 2021, we will bring together RBN senior analysts and industry leaders to cut through the buzz and get down to the straight–talk on CO2 capture technologies, economics, and infrastructure developments, putting it all in language and metrics familiar to anyone conversant in energy markets.
