Workshops

Clean Utilization of Coal

International development and deployment of technologies to safely capture and store carbon dioxide from power plants will be key to meeting climate goals.  During the workshop on Clean Utilization of Coal, investigators from the McDonnell Academy partner institutions and Washington University will join special guests to discuss advanced technologies and recent findings relating to carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).  Sessions will provide a summary of the coal research programs supported by the Consortium for Clean Coal Utilization.

All sessions occur on the Danforth Campus in Whitaker Hall Auditorium unless otherwise indicated. Schedule and details are subject to changePlease check back often for updates.
