NEW YORK, NY –

The 2013 Carbon Management Technology Conference (CMTC), which will tackle the critical issue of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and how society can respond to climate change, will be held from October 21-23 in Alexandria, Va.

The conference will be chaired by Dave Rogers, General Manager, Energy Modeling, Corporate Strategic Planning at Chevron Corporation and will revolve around the key issues of technologies, strategies, policies, management systems and the metrics of carbon management.

This is the second conference sponsored by the Founder Societies’ Technologies for Carbon Management, which was founded in 2008 by engineering professionals throughout the United States who believe they have a responsibility to find solutions to the problem of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.

The conference will take place at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town.

The three days will feature presentations by keynote speakers, technical papers, poster presentations, panel discussions, and workshops. The conference will build upon topics from the 2012 CMTC and will reflect everything from in-the-field engineering experience to state-of-the-art research.

“Climate change and how societies across the globe are responding to its impact is one of the most important issues of our day,” said Rogers. “This conference will help those involved on the front lines better understand what can be done and identify ways to mitigate its effects.”

The event will provide a multi-disciplinary focus on critical engineering issues for mitigation of and adaption to climate change. It will bring together experts from a range of disciplines in carbon management technologies.

Topics to Include:

  • Carbon capture, utilization and storage
  • Carbon management pathways from electricity generation to end-use
  • Potentially game-changing technology and evaluation
  • Engineering challenges and solutions for adaptation to climate change

Engineers of all relevant disciplines, researchers, scientists, executives, agency personnel (international, federal, state and local), operations and maintenance engineers/managers, economists, academics, regulatory and legal professionals, suppliers of products and services, and project, technology and health, safety and the environment  (HSE) managers all are invited to attend.

Organizers are looking for abstracts on relevant topics to be presented at the conference.

About the Founder Societies’ Technologies for Carbon Management Project

With the belief that engineering professionals have a responsibility to respond to the global challenge of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, five major engineering societies, AIChE (the American Institute of Chemical Engineers), ASME (the American Society of Mechanical Engineers), AIME (made up of the Association for Iron and Steel Technology;, Society of Petroleum Engineers;, The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society; and the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration), IEEE (the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers), and ASCE (and the American Society for Civil Engineers), have joined forces, under the auspices of the United Engineering Foundation, to organize an initiative to address the challenges of developing and implementing technologies for carbon management.

About AIChE: AIChE is a professional society of more than 40,000 chemical engineers in 92 countries. Its members work in corporations, universities and government using their knowledge of chemical processes to develop safe and useful products for the benefit of society. Through its varied programs, AIChE continues to be a focal point for information exchange on the frontier of chemical engineering research in such areas as nanotechnology, sustainability, hydrogen fuels, biological and environmental engineering, and chemical plant safety and security.
