Dear friends and colleagues,

It is a pleasure for me to invite you to participate at the "MatGas Seminar Series on CO2 and related issues" that we are organizing at MatGas. The objective of this seminar series is to acquire a solid knowledge of the state of the art in the field of CO2 capture, utilization and energy issues associated to environmentally benign energy technologies. We will invite internationally recognized experts on CO2 capture, sequestration, utilization and energy connected issues (including hydrogen) with different and complementary perspectives: from fundamental knowledge to well developed technologies, enlightening the issues and challenges on this relevant topic. The seminars will be held at the MatGas building (Campus Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona).
Professor Mercedes MAROTO-VALER, from CICCS - University of Nottingham (UK), is going to give the third seminar of this series, under the title: "Carbon management programmes at the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS)". The seminar will be held on April 24th, at 12:00.

You are cordially invited to participate in this seminar series.


Dr. Lourdes F. Vega

MATGAS Director
