Ascent Project
ASCENT consortium hosted the second EU –Australia workshop on advanced carbon capture technologies.
The consortium of the ASCENT (Advanced Solids Cycles with Efficient Novel Technologies) project has hosted the second EU –Australia workshop in the SwissTech Convention Centre of the École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne (EPFL) back to back to the GHGT 13 on the 14th November 2016. The goal of this event was to facilitate the diffusion and transfer of latest results in the field of CCS within the Europe and to share the project results obtained with the twinned Australian partners. The event was divided into three sessions: the first one was opened with an introduction of the ASCENT project followed by the presentation of some of the current EU FP7 projects on the CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) technologies: GREEN-CC, INTERACT, HIPERCAP. The goal of this first part was to share the knowledge and communicate the latest results gained in the field of advanced and novel CCS technologies studied in these projects. The central session was focused on the current situation of the CCS technologies in the Australia with a focus on the joined results obtained on the economic optimization of the three ASCENT technologies with The University of Sydney. During this second session a broad introduction of the Australian coordinated H2020 LEILAC project was given as well. Finally, the third session of the event highlighted the latest outputs in the field of materials development, LCA activities and safety risk analysis obtained within the ASCENT project. The workshop ended with a roundtable for fruitful discussion in order to explore and define potential future EU-Australian activities in the field of low carbon technologies. The last part of the discussion was focused on the preparation of the ground for ‘sustainable’ cooperation between EU and Australia for long cooperation in the field of CCS technologies. The ASCENT consortium wish to thank Professor Dianne Wiley from The University of Sydney who has given a wider outlook of the CCS technologies in Australia, Prof. Dr.- Eng. Wilhelm Albert Meulenberg from Research Centre of Jülich and Prof. Dr.- Eng. Axel Gottschalk from Supren GmbH who have shared the latest results obtained respectively in GREEN-CC and INTERACT projects. Further thanks to Dr. Paul Cobden from ECN and Dr Richard Blom from SINTEF who have given, respectively, a broad summary of the LEILAC and HIPERCAP projects.
