ACT knowledge sharing at GHGT-14

The ACT projects are already delivering interesting results and you can now learn more about what they have achieved.

Many ACT projects will be present at the GHGT-14 conference in Melbourne 21-26 October 2018 and present their results.

You can find a summary of presentations and activities from the ACT projects below. Hopefully, the ACT presentations will be of interest for many because the knowledge sharing from ACT at GHGT-14 will be valuable in our common strive to get CCS deployed globally.
