The Clean Energy Ministerial is a high-level global forum to promote policies and programs that advance clean energy technology, to share lessons learned and best practices, and to encourage the transition to a global clean energy economy. Initiatives are based on areas of common interest among participating governments and other stakeholders.
A top line up including speakers from the Centre for Low Carbon Futures, Department of Energy and Climate Change, Doosan Babcock, Fluor and Sulzer Pumps as well as a Senior Government representative, will offer an insight into the forthcoming opportunities for manufacturers in this potentially lucrative area.
"Today the Government is reasserting its mission to lead the world on CCS...We are determined to ensure the UK continues to be at the forefront of CCS development" Chris Huhne, November 2010
The global low carbon economy wave has attracted attention from almost all walks of life. Particularly after the UNFCCC Copenhagen Conference 2009 (COP-15), those involved are not just limited to the people involved in policy on economic levels, but include almost every community from politics to technology and the general public. Currently, “low carbon” has become one of the most common phrases in daily life.

Due to the overwhelming success of the three previous Oxyfuel Combustion Network workshops held in Germany, USA and Japan, we have responded to the growing interest in oxyfuel technologies for power plant with CO2 capture by developing the workshops into a full Conference.
Post-combustion capture typically uses a solvent to chemically absorb the CO2 from the flue gases after the combustion process. Reactive absorbents are currently the preferred choice due to the low partial pressure of CO2 (between 3-15 kPa) in the flue gas with nitrogen to be considered as the main component. Nevertheless, other techniques, such as membranes and adsorption are not as mature as the chemical absorption processes and require further research and development.
This year, in conjunction with the FP7 Coordination Action 'CGS Europe', the aim is to give stakeholders an overview of research and progress in CO2 geological storage on a true European scale, including a country-by-country status covering:
