A first conference focusing on carbon capture and use
Climate change is of increasing concern to the planet, and carbon dioxide emissions have been identified as one of the main causes — there is no denying it, we need to act now to reduce our emissions. The Gaspésie Clean Technologies Hub, which is working in conjunction with Ciment McInnis to establish an industrial symbiosis, is proud to present this conference focused on carbon and its uses.
This symposium will focus on efforts made to date by the McInnis cement plant to reduce its GHG emissions, while also highlighting international and local businesses striving to capture and use CO2. This conference is aiming to become the reference point for the field of carbon in Quebec.
Presentations in French (except exceptions mentioned in the official program), check the schedule on the Hopin platform.
The conferences in French will be simultaneously translated into English, an explanatory email will be sent to the participants.
