Register today for the 2023 CCUS TEA/LCA Workshop!

We are excited to announce that the Global CO2 Initiative will host the 2023 TEA/LCA Workshop on Harmonizing CCUS Assessments on May 16-18 this year! This fifth workshop in the series is planned and conducted by the International CCUS Assessment Harmonization Group with members from the USA (GCI at U-M, NETL, NREL, ANL), Canada (NRC), Germany (RIFS, formerly known as IASS), Switzerland (ETH Zürich), and Japan (NIAIST). We are looking forward to one-and-a-half days of intense dialog and work that will advance transparent and uniform assessments of CCUS technologies and products.

This year’s workshop will focus on the inclusion of social factors in life cycle assessments and techno-economic assessments, as well as next steps towards guidance through international standardization of assessment guidelines.

The workshop will be conducted in-person at the Rackham Graduate School at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. We can offer free attendance but have limited space available, so consider registering early. Online participation will be available.

Register for in person attendance here.

We will host a poster session for student and postdoc presenters to specifically invite them to engage with the assessment community.

Who should attend?

  • Researchers, students, practitioners, developers and users of LCA and TEA for CCUS and users of assessment outputs.

Please note that the workshop does not provide introductory training for LCA and TEA for CCUS.

A detailed program with speakers and discussion session topics will be available later in March.
