VIRTUAL INSTRUCTOR LED TRAINING (VILT)

CARBON CAPTURE ECONOMICS AND BUSINESS MODELS

13 - 14 OCTOBER 2021 | 2 half-day training, 3 hours per session (total 6 hours)

About The Course

Currently some 40 megatonnes of Co2 are captured and stored annually with dozens of new projects representing some USD 30bn investments being announced since 2017. As more and more countries as well as corporations are adopting net zero carbon emission targets, the carbon capture utilization and storage sector is due to increase at least 100-fold if the IPCC scenario is to be met.

 

This course is introducing the current status of carbon capture utilization and storage technology options and examining their economics and potential pathways. The objective is to help delegates to understand how to map business opportunities and structure a business case around this technology.

 

Each module will be enriched by using additional materials in form of spreadsheets, articles, online tools and video clips to show real world case studies. Significant time will be dedicated to case studies and group work in order to enhance application of new knowledge and leverage experiences between delegates.

 

Participants will also receive access to a shared cloud folder with in-depth background reports, articles, bookmarks, templates and tools in electronic format.
