The role of carbon capture, utilization, and storage continues to grow as we recognize that our climate targets will be harder and harder to reach. Recent IPCC studies have demonstrated the critical importance of carbon capture for decarbonizing our economy rapidly. This is especially important today for industrial emissions, which have not received the attention that the electric sector has, and for which fewer decarbonization options are available. And the recent report on reaching 1.5ºC has highlighted that permanently removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere will perhaps play an even bigger role – potentially creating a new industry twice as large as today's oil industry. Thus, carbon capture and storage is need for the immediate transition to a zero carbon economy, and then will be needed to remediate the atmosphere at massive scales.
In this fourth installation of the CCUS Gordon Research Conference series, we will examine the new science needed to achieve these massive goals. Can we decarbonize safely, and with a variety of approaches appropriate for the variety of power and industrial challenges? Can we develop methods to clean up the atmosphere – so called negative emissions – in time to keep within reasonable temperature limits? We will discuss these questions and many more in an interdisciplinary framework at the 2021 Gordon Research Conference on CCUS, where participants junior and senior will be stimulated by the highly interactive atmosphere typical of the GRCs and inspired by the natural landscape surrounding the conference venue.

Carbon Capture Technology & Expo 2020 will unveil the very latest current and emerging technologies from some of the sector’s leading experts and energy leaders while providing a showcase for innovative models that can capture carbon’s potential by turning CO2 by-products into profitable applications for concrete, carbon fiber, polymers, food, fertilizers, liquid fuels, chemicals, graphene and more.

Energy is one of the most important problems that we are facing. The limited fossil fuel reserves and the air pollution caused by the consuming of fossil fuels force the governments, industries and academia to look for renewable energies and their conversion-storage devices. Some novel concepts based on the electrochemical reactions have been considered as promising solutions to help solve energy problem and improve the quality of our lives. The low efficiency, high cost and short lifetime have prevented the wide adoption of these energy conversion and storage technologies, such as fuel cells, electrolysers, advanced batteries, supercapacitors, etc. One of the main reasons for the low performance is due to our extremely limited understanding on the interfacial reactions, which are the hearts in these technologies. This new GRC on "Electrochemical Interfaces in Energy Conversion and Storage" will create a new forum for discussion at the frontiers of energy conversion and storage. It will focus on the new understanding of interfacial phenomena including both experimental and theoretical advances in both aqueous and non-aqueous solvents, and solid electrolytes at the atomic level.
