Research Experience in Carbon Sequestration (RECS) 2017

RECS is the premier carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) education and training experience in the U.S. that is helping to prepare a world-class workforce, enhance U.S. competitiveness, nurture career networks and facilitate research opportunities and technology breakthroughs. The intensive 10-day, interactive program combines classroom instruction with group exercises, CCUS site visits and hands-on field activities that cover the range of science, technology, policy, and business topics associated with CCUS deployment. The RECS network represents the nation’s best-in-class in the CCUS field.

Project Coal to Electricity – Teaching Environmental Issues

If your teaching assignment includes natural resources this program is for you. Come visit the Appalachian Plateau in far southwest Virginia for a first hand look at local geology, coal mining, reclamation, coal utilization, and some local history.

This program augments and supports 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th grade, and Earth Science Standards of Learning relating to non-renewable resources – rock, coal, and natural gas. There is also ample opportunity to discuss issues relating to two of Virginia’s natural resources – forests and water.

Coal – America’s most abundant fuel is used to produce more than 40% of our electricity. The program provides participants with hands-on activities. They explore the Powell River Project Research and Education Center and see how mined land has been restored for a variety of post-mining land use options. They visit underground mines (longwall and continuous mining operations), a surface mine, a coal preparation plant, a coal laboratory, and a coal-fired power plant. They tour a state- of-the-art coal gasification facility and a mining manufacturing plant.

Applications for the July 2017 will be available soon!

Course Name: Is your facility carbon capture ready? Understanding the basics of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS)

Course Dates: Webinar On Demand

Course Description: The objective of this Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) webinar is to transfer knowledge that will enable engineering professionals to implement and deploy CCUS projects. Specific areas to be addressed are project development, operations, and monitoring. The webinar will provide an overview of the entire value chain of CCS from capture and separation, through CO2 compression and transportation, to injection well design, utilization of CO2 for enhanced oil/gas recovery, operation, and monitoring, verification, and accounting (MVA) techniques.
