16th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT-16)

In acknowledging the importance of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) to reduce CO2 emissions and meet the Paris Agreement’s objectives, France submitted and were successfully selected to host the 16th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT-16).

As this conference will be the first time ever held in France, it will truly showcase France’s (and more broadly Europe’s) expertise in CCUS and support the future CCUS developments across Europe, especially regarding applications in the industry sector.

The Conference host Club CO2, with a French consortium composed of: ADEME, BRGM, IFP Energies nouvelles and TotalEnergies, is committed to support the organisation of GHGT-16 in Lyon, the 2nd largest metropolitan area (after Paris) in France and the 1st European capital of smart tourism (voted in 2019).

The planning is now in place to hold an in person event (subject to Covid 19 restrictions) in Lyon at the extensive Lyon Convention Center (Cité Internationale). The location offers affordable and accessible travel and accommodation to all delegates now eager to connect in a safe face to face conference environment, and enjoy the heritage and gastronomy of this fabulous city.

The Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT) conference series was formed in 1997 following the merger of the earlier series of ICCDR and the Greenhouse Gas: Mitigation options conference.

The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) is the guardian of the conference series. The GHGT conferences are held every two years in IEAGHG’s member countries. The conference series rotates between North America, Europe and Asia.

The GHGT conference series is established as the principal international conference on greenhouse gas mitigation technologies, focussing on Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage.

Each conference will be a forum for technical discussions related to the field of greenhouse gas control technology.
