The quest for cleaner energy is not just about looking for renewable forms of energy but finding new, cost-effective ways to minimize the carbon footprint as we extract conventional and unconventional hydrocarbons. Register for this webinar to hear UCalgary scholars Joule Bergerson and Marc Strous share their research on methods and technologies for reducing carbon emission to help ease the transition.
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Joule Bergerson is an associate professor in UCalgary's Schulich School of Engineering, a Canada Research Chair in Energy Technology Assessment, and a member of the faculty’s Centre for Environmental Engineering Research and Education. Her goal is to provide methods and tools that will allow a better understanding of life-cycle assessment and systems modeling for new technologies, ensuring energy production is maximized while keeping the climate and costs in mind.
Marc Strous is a professor in the Department of Geoscience in UCalgary's Faculty of Science, and a Campus Alberta Innovation Program (CAIP) Chair in Reservoir Biogeoscience. Marc strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy production. He is leading the CO2 capture and conversion theme, one of several areas of research being funded at the university through a $75-million grant from the federal Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF).
