Webinar: Planning Decarbonisation with Carbon Emission Pinch Analysis (CEPA)

Webinar: Planning Decarbonisation with Carbon Emission Pinch Analysis (CEPA)
  • Date From 21st January 2022
  • Date To 21st January 2022
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 08:00 GMT. Duration: 1 hour.

Overview

Carbon emission pinch analysis (CEPA) is a useful decision support and visualization tool for decarbonisation initiatives. It may be used for planning renewables, carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), as well as the carbon dioxide removal using negative emissions technologies in order to achieve carbon neutrality by mid-century.

The Glasgow Agreement of COP26 has been criticized for its soft stance on fossil energy. It is expected that greenhouse gas emissions will continue to grow for several more decades. Meeting the targets of the Paris Agreement will require more ambitious emissions cuts. The use of renewables, adoption of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), as well as the need for carbon dioxide removal using negative emissions technologies (NETs) will have to be well planned in order to achieve carbon neutrality by mid-century. Carbon emission pinch analysis (CEPA) is a useful decision support and visualization tool for decarbonisation initiatives. CEPA was featured as the cover story of The Chemical Engineer magazine in Nov 2019. In this webinar, the developers of CEPA will show how its variants may be used for energy planning to achieve carbon neutrality.

This webinar is aimed at all IChemE members who are interested in decarbonisation.
