Event Description

Join the CGA and FPA for a panel examining new approaches to managing carbon, from turning CO2 into commercial products to strategies to capture, store and utilize carbon.  New applications for captured carbon dioxide include fuel production, concrete enrichment, and power generation. Technology and investment decisions matter, and understanding how to create a circular carbon economy while working to reduce CO2 from the atmosphere will be explored.  The panel brings together a small group of experts from business, government, and academia to discuss carbon as a manageable resource, the value and future of carbon based energy sources, and the risks and opportunities associated with it.
