The Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium (MGSC), one of the seven US Department of Energy Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships, is hosting a knowledge sharing event focused on regional and international carbon capture utilization and storage projects. Please join us for a comprehensive look at several regional projects, including the Illinois Basin – Decatur Project, Illinois Industrial Sources CCS, and CarbonSAFE - Illinois program. We will also have a session focusing on insights into current national and international project and policy perspectives.

Participants will have ample opportunity for discussion and networking. The program includes an optional short course looking at the Mt. Simon core collected, a full day of research presentations and posters covering all aspects of projects housed in the MGSC region. There is a planned site visit to the Decatur sequestration projects on Thursday morning. Technical registration is $150; Student registration is $35.

The University of Illinois and MGSC will also be host to the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum Technical Meeting on April 25–26. For more information visit: https://www.cslforum.org/cslf/Events/Champaign2019
