The International CCS Knowledge Centre was pleased to host 39 PhD and emerging career students from 20 countries for the 13th Annual IEAGHG CCS Summer School from July 7 – 12, 2019.
A total of 28 presenters delivered CCS content ranging from capture & storage, health and safety, to regulations, communications and policy (click here to see the schedule). It was a jam packed week consisting of 14 hour days that included presentations from CCS experts, networking, a field trip, and group work every night that culminated in grouped presentations on the last day.
13 mentors, CCS experts from all over the world, committed their entire week to teaching and guiding the students and the groups.
The highlight of the week was a full day field trip to SaskPower’s Boundary Dam 3 facility, the world’s first full-chain CCS facility connected to a coal-fired power plant.
The trip also included a visit to the Petroleum Technology Research Centre’s Aquistore project where carbon is stored deep underground and safely monitored, and the Carbon Capture Test Facility, a demonstration-scale test facility that enables long-term technology evaluation utilizing up to 120T/day of CO2 captured directly from the Shand Power Station, a coal- fired power generating facility operated by SaskPower near Estevan, Saskatchewan.
The event wrapped up with a Dinner and Awards Banquet at the Wascana Country Club on July 12th where the following awards were presented:
