Low Carbon Futures with CSIRO and Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre

2pm - Wednesday 24 August 2022

The 2022 IPPC Working Group 3 report states that the need for large-scale deployment of carbon dioxide removal methods is now “unavoidable” if the world is to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. Likewise, the IEA calls for an expansion of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects — where carbon dioxide emissions are captured at the source, and then pumped and stored deep in the ground. Further, while renewable energy and electrification are expected to do the bulk of emissions reduction heavy lifting, emissions reduction in hard-to-abate industry sectors continues to be a challenge.

CSIRO’s WA-based energy team is at the forefront of researching methods for direct air capture carbon capture, carbon use technology, storage and monitoring. We invite you to go behind the scenes and meet the scientists working to discover how these technologies can contribute to a low carbon future, including in industry sectors.

CSIRO is also working with world-class supercomputing facility, the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre, on low carbon energy opportunities for high power demand metropolitan sites. Hear from the Pawsey team about their sustainability program, including geothermal cooling and hydrogen feasibility studies.

Guests are welcome to stay for light refreshments following the tour.
