Location: Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Interactive Platform for International Debate on CCS Developments & Innovations

ACI’s 5th Carbon Capture & Storage Summit will take place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, arguably the European centre for CCS. In fact, a limited number of conference attendees will receive the unique opportunity to attend a site visit to the CATO pilot during the afternoon of Tuesday 14th May 2013.

Bringing together 60-80 of the industry’s leading experts and executives from across the entire value chain (power production & energy intensive industry, capture technology, chemical process, transportation, storage, utilisation & EOR) for two days of interactive discussion, excellent networking opportunities and the very latest updates from CCS projects around the globe, ACI’s 5th Carbon Capture & Storage will present you with the knowledge, experience & contacts you need to drive your business forward.

Exclusive Site Visit

ACI, together with E.ON & TNO, is delighted to bring the unique opportunity to visit the CATO-2 Catcher Pilot at E.ON's MPP1/2 & newly constructed MPP3, a 1,100MW coal-fired power plant equipped for CO2 capture in the Port of Rotterdam during the afternoon of Tuesday 14th May 2013 to a limited number of conference attendees.
