Background to the conference

    The Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT) conference series was formed in 1997 following the merger of the earlier series of ICCDR and the Greenhouse Gas: Mitigation options conference.

    The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) is the guardian of the conference series. The GHGT conferences are held every two years in IEAGHG's member countries. The conference series rotates between North America, Europe and Asia.

    The GHGT conference series has established itself as the principal international conference on greenhouse gas mitigation technologies especially on CCS (CO2 Capture and Storage).

    Each conference will be a forum for technical discussions related to the field of greenhouse gas control technology.  This field can be defined, broadly, as technologies that allow us to continue using our large fossil energy reserves while reducing their associated greenhouse gas emissions.

    GHGT-14 Otway Site Visit

    Visit to CO2CRC’s Otway National Research Facility 

    Following the conference CO2CRC will host visits to their Otway National Research Facility.  Delegates can choose to attend on either Friday 26 October or Saturday 27 October.  This $100m facility is located in south-west Victoria and is the world’s largest carbon capture and storage demonstration project. 

    A complimentary bus will depart Melbourne for the Otway facility at 7am, returning to Melbourne by 6pm.  Meals will be provided. 

    Places for both days are now full.

    Elsevier are no longer able to provide GHGT Conferences with a cost effective and timely publishing platform, so in a change from the past few conferences, full papers will be published online by SSRN (Social Science Research Network). SSRN is devoted to the rapid Worldwide dissemination of research and is composed of a number of specialised research networks. The proceedings will be fully citable and also distributed via their E-Journal. Alternatively, authors will be able to opt for their full papers to be considered for inclusion in a Virtual Special Issue (VSI) of the International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control. The Technical Program Committee hope to include a selection of papers submitted to the Conference into the VSI.
