THE CERM PROJECT
Developing a National CCS Programme in Trinidad and Tobago- an International Knowledge-Sharing Symposium
We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for “Developing a National CCS Program in Trinidad and Tobago-an International Knowledge Sharing Symposium”.
The Symposium will be held 29th-30th October, 2019 at the UTT Energy Campus, Pt. Lisas, Trinidad and Tobago.
Trinidad and Tobago has the potential to develop Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) as a part of their national carbon emission reduction and climate change mitigation strategy. The University of Trinidad and Tobago and the University of the West Indies, partners in The CERM Project, are organising an international knowledge-sharing symposium on CCS for State, Academic and Private Stakeholders interested in carbon emissions reduction.
The symposium is being held in collaboration with IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) and The University of Texas at Austin. The goals of the symposium are to outline the foundation that is already in place for CCS in Trinidad and Tobago and to discuss a way forward for further development with technical support from international partners. It will also explore United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) funding sources for national program development.
You should receive an email with the registration form by Friday 27th, September. If not, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you there!
