The MatGas Seminar Series on CO2 and related issues were inaugurated last December and their objective is to acquire and divulgate a solid knowledge of the state of the art in the field of CO2 capture, utilization and energy issues associated to environmentally benign energy technology. Several international experts on CO2 capture, sequestration, utilization and energy connected issues (including hydrogen) with different and complementary perspectives: from fundamental knowledge to well developed technologies, will be invited to participate at this series. The complementary approach will enlighten the issues and challenges on this relevant topic. A list of invited speakers who already  participated includes: Prof. Alain Demourgues, from ICMCB-CNRS-University of Bordeaux 1 (France),  Dr. J. Angel Menéndez, from INCAR-CSIC (Spain), Prof. Ken Seddon, from Belfast (UK), Prof. Mercedes Maroto-Valer from University of Nottingham (UK) and Dr. Santiago Sabugal, president of  the Spanish CO2 Platform.

These seminars are held on monthly basis at the MatGas building (Campus Universitat Autonoma de  Barcelona), if you want to receive information, please contact Ms. Montse Salas  (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
