15th October 2008

This half-day conference convened academics from Imperial College, researchers from large industrials and startups, financiers, and experts from the policy and regulatory fields, to explore the role of private capital in commercialising new approaches to Carbon Capture & Sequestration (CCS). Three primary questions guided the proceedings:

  1. What are the key technical (innovation) challenges as we move towards large-scale commercialization of CCS?
  2. How can private capital best be mobilized to accelerate the commercialization of CCS and related technologies?
  3. What, if any, is the role of venture capital (VC) in commercializing new CCS technologies and businesses?
