Webinar 2: Carbon Capture and Storage for Waste to Energy: Evaluating climate impacts and technologies

12:00-14:00 (GMT)

This webinar presented a comparative techno-economic assessment of emerging and close to commercial CO2 capture technologies in the Waste to Energy Sector (amine solvents, membranes and oxy-fired circulating fluidised bed). It also presented a case study of a UK Waste-to-Energy plant, in terms of energy performance and Life Cycle Assessment. An assessment of the potential for creating negative emissions in the European Waste to Energy Sector was followed by recommendations for stakeholders and policymakers. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions after each talk.

Chair: Mathieu Lucquiaud, University of Sheffield
