Two Carbon Sequestration Talks Presented

Ed Mehnert presented the talk, Safeguarding Groundwater Quality at Geologic Carbon Sequestration Sites — An Illinois Basin Example, at the American Water Works Association Annual Convention and Exposition in San Diego on June 16. His presentation was part of a special session, "Water Research Foundation: Potential Groundwater Quality Impacts Resulting from Geological Carbon Sequestration," which was organized by Kenan Ozekin. The abstract of the talk was co-authored by Ivan Krapac, Bracken Wimmer, Abbas Iranmanesh, and Randy Locke. Approximately 20 people attended the session.


Yongqi Lu presented a paper related to a generic analysis of the adsorption processes for the post-combustion CO2 capture at the Air and Waste Management Association's 102nd Annual Conference & Exhibition in Detroit, Michigan, June 16-19. The paper assessed the technical feasibility and energy use performance of various adsorption process configurations.
