2009 US-China Coal Conversion and Carbon Management Workshop
Please note the following invitation from WVU and DOE to those who are interested in exploring coal and CCS collaborative possibilities with China.
We cordially invite you to attend the 2009 US-China Coal Conversion and Carbon Management Workshop, December 2-4, 2009 in Morgantown, West Virginia, USA. The event is hosted by the US-China Energy Center and the National Research Center for Coal and Energy of West Virginia University and supported by the U.S. Department of Energy. The 2009 US-China Coal Conversion and Carbon Management Workshop is an activity under Annex II-A to the protocol on cooperation in the field of fossil energy technology development and utilization between the Department of Energy of the United States of America and the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China.
Among those invited are participants from the China NDRC and NEA organizations, Shenhua Group, Shanxi Province, and other Chinese industry, university, and government officials along with officials from the U.S. Department of Energy, CONSOL Energy, Peabody Coal, and other U.S. energy companies, universities, and government agencies.
This workshop carries on the tradition of sharing information and developing relationships between our two nations. For example, the 3rd US-China Clean Energy Workshop, which was coordinated by our WVU centers and co-sponsored by the U.S. DOE, emphasized advanced concepts in coal-based energy such as environmental improvements in municipal and industrial heating and in coal-to-liquids technologies (see presentations at: http://www.nrcce.wvu.edu/conferences/2004/China/). The 4th workshop was hosted by Shenhua and co-sponsored by China NDRC in Beijing June 15-16, 2006 and focused on coal gasification and liquefaction technology. The events offer ample opportunity for US and Chinese participants to talk with one another about common concerns and opportunities.
Details about the 2009 US-China Coal Conversion and Carbon Management Workshop will be posted as they become available on our website: http://www.NRCCE.wvu.edu/CleanEnergy
