Why H2 & Carbon Capture

The continuing pressure on pipelines, climate change, and the recent elections reinforces that change is a constant in our industry.

ExxonMobil estimates hydrogen and carbon capture sequestration to be a $3 billion dollar market by 2040. 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 infrastructure.

Why carbon capture and sequestration? Post treatment of hydrocarbon combustion can capture carbon dioxide allowing for sequestration in underground formations, eliminating climate change concerns.

The industry has the core competencies and scale to lead way to a carbon free future. It will require innovative thinking – especially in how to monetize the massive investments. A challenge the industry has been able to address in the past.

This conference explores these issues in the unique context of the Appalachian region and your opportunity be a part of the next big thing. Learn from the leaders.
