RECS 2019 is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and will be held on July 20-27, in Wyoming. It 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, nurture career networks, and facilitate research collaborations.
The intensive one-week 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 program combines lectures from leading CCUS experts with interactive CCUS field and site visits, along with communications training and CCUS deployment exercises. A preliminary program may be found here. The RECS keynote speaker will be Dr. Roger Aines, Lawrence Livermore National Lab’s Chief Scientist of Energy Programs and head of the lab’s Carbon Initiative. Dr. Aines will also run an interactive workshop based on his new book, Championing Science: Communicating Your Ideas to Decision Makers.
Applications are due by June 10th. Applicants should be U.S.-based early career professionals, Ph.D. or graduate students with backgrounds in geology, chemistry, hydrology, physics, natural sciences, engineering, CCUS systems and related fields. Enrollment is competitive and limited to 20 participants who are required to attend the full session. In your application, please include: CV, statement of interest (why you want to attend RECS and what you want to gain from the experience), and the name of your reference. Your reference may email a letter of recommendation or schedule a call with the RECS director before June 10th.
