Why H2 & Carbon Capture
The continuing pressure on pipelines, climate change, and the recent elections reinforces that change is a constant in our industry.
The DOE continues work on their $1 billion + carbon capture sequestration program. South Korea is well on their way to have 6.2 million hydrogen vehicles on the road by 2040. Here in the US extensive use of hydrogen public transit vehicles is becoming the norm.
Why hydrogen? It's an energy-dense fuel that when burned produces only water and can be transported in existing natural gas channels.
Why carbon capture and storage? Instead of atmospheric emissions of burning hydrocarbons, capturing carbon dioxide and sequestering in underground formations eliminates climate change concerns.
The industry has all the core competencies to take advantage of these processes but there are many challenges as well as lessons learned from others around the world.
This conference explores these issues in the unique context of the Appalachian region and your opportunity be a part of the next big thing.
Meet the speakers for the Appalachian Hydrogen & Carbon Capture Conference. These professionals represent the best of the best when it comes to this exciting opportunity for the Appalachian Basin.
