Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Fossil Energy: Searching for the Next Better

Hydrogen and carbon are the building blocks of our hydrocarbon planet. Kicking the fossil carbon habit means developing technologies for a ‘new carbon economy’.”

ARLINGTON, VA, USA, May 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leaders in Energy is a dynamic ecosystem of industry thought leaders and citizens who are actively creating a more sustainable world.

What: Join us for our event on May 29th which will examine how we can reduce our carbon footprint from fossil energy. The United States is a major producer of petroleum including large quantities of natural gas. While this trend is good from an economic standpoint, concerns over climate change point to the need for emissions reductions from all possible sources.

Hydrogen and carbon are the building blocks of our hydrocarbon planet. Kicking the fossil carbon habit means developing technologies for a ‘new carbon economy’. Products of this new carbon economy can cover the full array of the things we use every day.

How can we accelerate this transition and what will this “next better” look like? This Program will discuss the technologies that can help reduce CO2 emissions from fossil energy including renewable hydrogen, carbon capture, and synthetic products. Specifically, the technology discussion will focus on advancements that: 1) Reduce greenhouse gas emissions; 2) Capture and sequester, store, or utilize carbon dioxide; and 3) Produce useful products from waste streams.

When & Where: Wednesday, May 29th, 5:30 – 8:30 pm at Industrious Ballston located at 4201 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22203. The event includes the program of speakers as well as networking before and after the program.

Speakers:

• LEE BECK, Global CCS Institute’s Senior Advisor for Advocacy and Communications based in the Institute’s Washington, DC office. The Institute is the world’s leading authority on carbon capture and storage (CCS) – an international climate change organization whose mission is to accelerate the deployment of CCS as an imperative technology in tackling climate change and providing energy security.

• GREG KATZ serves on the Board of Blue Planet which uses its patented Liquid Condensed Phase (LCP™) Technology to convert CO2 into high-value CarbonMix™ building and highway materials.

Who Should Attend: This event is for those in industry, academia, government, non-profits, investors, and others who are interested in learning about how these innovations can make an impact in reducing carbon emissions. It will also appeal to those interested in alternative fuels, renewable electricity, and the innovations that can move us to a new carbon economy.

Early bird discounts through May 22nd. Job seeker and student discounts also available. Ticket includes program, pizza, and beverages. See more information about the event at: https://leadersinenergy.org/reducing-the-carbon-footprint-of-fossil-energy-searching-for-the-next-better/
