Title: CHEMRAWN XVII - Greenhouse
Gases: Mitigation and Utilization
G. Jessop and Erwin
Governments struggle with the greenhouse gas (GHG) problem trying
to balance this long-term imperative with shorter term needs of
the economy and of the emerging nations. Industries seek ways to
reduce their emissions but are constrained by the lack of practical
technology and of clear government direction. The scientific community
is making GHG problem a major area of study.
This conference will bring all three of
these groups together, to seek a broad mutual understanding of the
current situation and clarity for future directions.
CHEMRAWN (Chemical Research Applied to World Needs) and the International
Conferences on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU) will hold a combined
conference in Kingston on science and policy related to mitigation
and utilization of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
The meeting is being held 6 months before the Kyoto-protocol commitment
period begins. Signatory governments are committed to meeting their
targets within the 2008-2012 time period. How will this be achieved?
Scientists, engineers and industrial or governmental policymakers
are invited to participate in this conference. The conference will
cover the following topics:
