With more than 20 years’ experience in the field of CCUS, IFPEN is co-organizing this 16th edition of the IEAGHG (International Energy Agency Greenhouse Gas R&D Program) conference on greenhouse gas control technologies, alongside the Club CO2, ADEME, BRGM and TotalEnergies. It will be held in Lyon from 23 to 27 October 2022. A first for France, at a time when decarbonization objectives call for an acceleration in CO2 emission reductions. 

The must-attend event in the international CCUS research calendar

France was chosen by the International Energy Agency’s Greenhouse Gas R&D Program - the IEAGHG - to host the 16th international conference on greenhouse gas control technologies (GHGT-16). 

This event represents the key focal point of international research on CO2 capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). Held every two years, it brings together more than 1,000 participants to discuss the technologies designed to help meet the objectives set out in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.

GHGT-16 in figures:
815 abstracts received from 39 countries, including 79 from France (2nd biggest contributor behind the USA with 141 abstracts)
355 oral presentations
360 posters
14 sponsors, 23 exhibitors

As part of a consortium formed with the Club CO2, ADEME, BRGM and TotalEnergies and with considerable expertise developed throughout the entire chain, IFPEN is co-organizing this edition, the focus this year being the industrial applications of CCUS technologies. Leading the way is Florence Delprat-Jannaud, CO2 coordinator and manager of the ”CO2: capture, storage, utilization & negative emissions” program at IFPEN and chair of the Club CO2. 

Around twenty speakers, a stand and laboratory tours IFPEN on the front line

Highlights on the agenda: plenary speeches by eminent global climate change and policy experts: expert debates, beginning on Monday 24 October with the roundtable entitled “Regulation and policies for successful deployment of CCS” chaired and moderated by Florence Delprat-Jannaud, with the participation of Pierre-Franck Chevet, chairman of IFPEN and chairman of Ancre. 

The challenges of CCUS technologies will be presented at two poster sessions and 71 technical sessions. Fourteen experts from IFPEN will speak on one of the seven themes of a program that covers the entire value chain: CO2 capture and storage, transport infrastructures, industrial applications. As well as the purely technical aspects, the conference will also tackle CCUS policies and regulations, societal acceptability and negative emissions.

Finally, in addition to its conference stand, IFPEN will be organizing a tour of its laboratories at its site in Lyon for participants wishing to gain a more in-depth understanding of the technical challenges facing the sector. They will be able to discover the experimental facilities and CO2 capture pilot testing units (chemical looping combustion - CLC -unit, industrial micro-pilot for the DMX process, etc.).
