Workshop Carbon, Capture, Storage and Use and Bioenergy - Joint Event of Brazilian and Dutch Universities


February 25-26, 2019
Auditório do IEE/USP – Av. Prof. Luciano Gualberto, 1.289 – Cidade Universitária, São Paulo
The main objective of the Workshop Brazil – Netherlands is to discuss the experiences from
Brazilian and Dutch universities on CCS, CCUS and BECCSUS, analyzing the need for such
technologies to reduce carbon emissions and the existing challenges for the corresponding
Despite the importance of the subject and the need to implement such technologies to mitigate
climate change, perspectives are more and more challenging according to the last IPCC report
( presented at COP24, held in Katowice, Poland. Its urgency is well
recognized and there is a strong need for additional measures to reduce GHG emissions
In this context, it is fundamental the adequate knowledge for additional measures to reduce
GHG emissions, such as CCS, CCUS, BECCS, BECCUS. These processes are starting to be
discussed in Brazil and RCGI/FAPESP/SHELL is deeply involved in this research, through
several of the projects under development and under preparation.
On another hand, The Netherlands has a huge experience on these subjects and the Dutch
researchers invited for the Workshop Brazil – Netherlands surely will contribute to increase the
Brazilian knowledge. Researchers from different areas related to CCS, CCUS and BECCS.
The event is a collaboration between the Research Center for Gas Innovation (RCGI) and the
Institute of Energy and Environment of the University of São Paulo, in partnership with the
Dutch Universities - Delft, Utrecht, Twente and Groningen and Trinomics, a consulting
company in the Netherlands with significant experience in the sector. The event has the
financial contribution of the Consulate of the Netherlands at São Paulo as well as the
financial support of FAPESP – Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São
The workshop will be in English, with no translation available. The workshop is addressed to
researchers, professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as to specialists and
civil society in general.
