GWPC UIC Conference Highlights Carbon Capture and Storage
The Ground Water Protection Council is offering a full day track dedicated to carbon capture and storage during its upcoming Underground Injection Control (UIC) Conference February 16 – 19, 2020 in San Antonio.
The annual conference is widely attended by state and federal government officials, industry representatives, academia, and NGOs from across the country.
We’re excited to offer this track focusing on carbon capture and storage,” said Mike Paque, GWPC executive director. “This topic is particularly important and timely as many more states are seeking primacy for the Class VI UIC program and there are growing incentives for and interest in implementing geologic storage.”
Attendees can expect to gain an enhanced understanding of the most current issues and processes surrounding the geosequestration of CO2.
This year’s conference is co-located with the National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) free National Risk Assessment Partnership (NRAP) workshop, which will present protocols for modeling CO2 subsurface flow and areal extent of CO2 plumes over time.
The conference also covers a wide array of issues and features in-depth workshops from all other classes of UIC. Hot topics include addressing PFAS challenges and regulation, produced water management and reuse, induced seismicity, and aquifer storage and recovery.
