Venue: Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre


At this year's Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT) conference series, which is held every two years, there was another very strong showing by researchers from our five partner institutes and fellow scientists on the European funded ERA-NET ACT projects. Around 40-50 papers and posters were presented across the conference themes. See listing below.

This year, we also had our international research associate, and event reporter, Gareth Johnson, on site filming special "CCS in 60 seconds" interviews with reseachers and star guests. Watch the interviews on the SCCS YouTube channel.
