2013 Carbon Management Technology Conference (CMTC 2013)
The 2013 Carbon Management Technology Conference (CMTC 2013) will draw professionals from all engineering disciplines to share their expertise and provide their perspectives on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to changing climate. The conference will focus on engineering perspectives regarding key issues, including technologies, strategies, policies, management systems and metrics. Experts and practitioners will share their findings and experience with the readiness, effectiveness, and implementation of options involved in meeting the challenges posed by greenhouse gas emissions. Engineering expertise, experience, and perspectives are critical to developing a viable path to meeting these challenges.
CMTC welcomes engineers of all relevant disciplines, researchers and scientists, executives, agency personnel (international, federal, state and local), operations and maintenance engineers/managers, economists, academics, regulatory and legal professionals, suppliers of products and services, and project, technology and HSE managers to this successor to the inaugural 2012 CMTC.
CMTC will feature presentations by keynote speakers, technical papers, poster presentations, and panel discussions. Dave Rogers, General Manager of Climate Change at Chevron, is chairing CMTC 2013. Jim Howard, Director-Electric System Compliance & Security with Lakeland Electric and the 2012 President of IEEE-USA, is co-chair.
The conference will also feature three co-located workshops:
• The RCN-SEES K-12 Outreach on CCUS Workshop, sponsored by the NSF Research Coordination Network on Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage will take place on Sunday Oct. 20th from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and is chaired by Tony Butterfield, University of Utah. This workshop will feature the Chalk from Carbon Dioxide module, which is designed to generate student interest in science, math, and engineering by building a connection between science and engineering careers and helping society. The workshop is targeted toward teachers searching for experimental methods to demonstrate carbon capture, but is also suitable for students who have the required scientific understanding. There is no fee to attend; please register here.
• The CCS/CCUS Overview: What It Is and What Are Its Implications? Workshop, sponsored by the Global CCS Institute in collaboration with CMTC 2013 will be held on Sunday Oct. 20th from 1:00-4:15 PM and will be followed by a networking reception. The chair is Kevin O'Brien, the Global CCS Institute's Principal Manager for Carbon Capture. This free workshop is geared to individuals who are involved in carbon dioxide management but who may not be an expert in all aspects. Register here to attend.
• Carbon Management's Effect on Water Stress Workshop chaired by Danny Reible, Texas Tech University, the workshop will take place on Thursday Oct. 24th and seeks to explore the negative relationships between carbon and water management. There are positive aspects in the relationship as well and the workshop hopes to highlight these but to specifically focus on situations and approaches when carbon and water management have competing goals. Topics to be discussed in the workshop program include the increased water demands of carbon sequestration and the production of renewable fuels as well as the increased water demands of hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas. Register here to attend. Please note that registration for this workshop is free for attendees of CMTC 2013.
What is Unique about CMTC:
- Organized by eight key Engineering Societies to tackle both mitigation and adaptation
- Reflects everything from in-the-field engineering experience to state-of-the-art research
- Designed to meet the needs of engineers and corporate decision makers
- Integrates interdisciplinary approaches to capture all essential perspectives
- Builds upon multi-disciplined experience and global lessons learned
Key features of CMTC:
- Draws professionals from all engineering societies,
- Brings together experts from a multitude of disciplines in carbon management technologies,
- Participation by elected officers and executive directors of engineering societies,
- A multi-disciplinary focus on critical engineering issues for mitigation of and adaptation to climate change, and
- Participation of international leaders from the public and private sectors.
The Carbon Management Technology Conference is sponsored by eight organizations:
