Fuel for Thought: Hydrogen & Carbon Capture Opportunities
June 17, 2021 | 10:30 am – 11 am EST
The hydrogen and carbon capture markets have recently garnered widespread attention as emerging opportunities in the United States and around the world. Hydrogen is an energy dense fuel that has a lower emission profile than other contemporary fuels. Carbon capture and utilization is being used as a way to enhance oil recovery and projects are also under way to store CO2 underground versus traditional disposal options.
While these markets have tremendous environmental and economic opportunities, there is not a lot of readily available information. We are pleased to bring 2 of the leading authorities on these subjects to our next program. Bob Schrecengost and Lynn Brickett work for the US Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy. Join us as these experts explain the hydrogen economy and the carbon capture and storage value chain.
There is no cost for this event.
Carbon Capture Program Manager @Office of Fossil Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy
Lynn Brickett is the Carbon Capture Program Manager in the Office of Fossil Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy. Her career has focused on environmental issues associated with fossil-fired power plants including: by-products, water, nitrogen oxides, mercury and carbon dioxide. Ms. Brickett was previously at NETL, working as the Carbon Capture Technology Manager, Director of the Capture Division, Project Manager, and a researcher studying the environmental impacts of coal by-products. Prior to NETL, she worked for the U.S. Bureau of Mines conducting research on bio-leaching of copper ores, bio-oxidation of gold ores, and remediation of acid mine drainage. Ms. Brickett received her B.S. degree in Environmental Science and her M.S. degree in Environmental Science and Management.
