7th International Conference on GHG Control Technologies (GHGT-7)
5-9 Sept 2004 Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre, Canada

The conference is organized by the University of Regina and Natural Resources Canada in cooperation with the IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme. The conference aims to build on the success of our previous conferences, GHGT-6 held in Japan 2002 (Greenhouse Issues number 63) and GHGT-5 held in Australia in 2000 (Greenhouse Issues number 50).

The venue for the conference is the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre (VCEC), which has a spectacular waterfront setting with a backdrop of mountains, ocean and parks. It is just minutes away from the downtown area, Gastown and Coal Harbour.

Call for Papers

The Abstract Submission Deadline has elapsed.

No further submissions will be accepted.

The call for papers is being coordinated by the organisers, with the editors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on CO2 Capture and Storage. The Organisers intend to have the papers available in time for consideration in this report which will be published in 2005.

The main technical themes for the conference are:

  • Capture and transmission of CO2
    This theme will focus on new developments in the areas of CO2 capture and transmission. Topics to be considered include: new technical developments leading to reductions in the costs of capture and technical aspects of CO2 transport systems
  • Storage of CO2
    This theme will include new developments in the areas of CO2 geological, mineral and ocean storage. Topics to be considered could include: presentation of new results from research and monitoring projects, new demonstration opportunities, source/storage opportunity matching activities as well as discussion on regulatory and safety issues.
  • Comparison of greenhouse gas reduction options
    This important theme will aim to compare the options available to reduce all greenhouse gases across all sectors. Topics to be considered could include: energy modelling studies, economic assessments of technologies, multi gas assessments and strategies, non-CO2 gases and renewable energy options.
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from Industry
    This theme will aim to present examples of greenhouse gas reduction actions undertaken or planned by industry. Individual topics that could be considered include: industry case studies, energy efficiency improvements and new technology developments. Case studies would be encouraged from developing countries that discuss issues such as technology transfer, examples of CDM or JI actions and discussion of issues concerned.
  • Zero emission technologies and decarbonised energy carriers from carbon based fuels
    This topic would focus on new developments in the field of zero emission technology and the production and use of energy carriers from the decarbonisation of fuels. Topics to be covered could include: technology developments, technology comparisons, techno-economic assessments, system studies and future demonstration opportunities.

In addition to the main technical themes, papers are also invited that focus on both international and national and industry led policy initiatives, covering all greenhouse gases. Papers on other CO2 sequestration and utilisation, options will also be considered.
