Prof. Di Zhou [CAS Key Laboratory of Ocean and Marginal Sea Geology, China]
Title: CO2 Capture, Use, and Storage (CCUS), Progress in the World and in China
Time: 10:15 - 11:00 AM, Thursday, July 7, 2016
Place: Auditorium Room 410, HPSTAR (Shanghai)
Host: Dr. Jinfu Shu & Dr. Bin Chen
CO2 Capture, Use, and Storage (CCUS) is a chain of techniques to capture CO2 from large point sources, transport it, and use or store it for the purpose of reducing atmospheric CO2 concentration. This is the only approach that may lead to a “clean” use of fossil-fueled energy, and has been recognized as an essential component in the portfolio of carbon emission mitigation measurements. This talk will brief the importance and progress of CCUS development in the world and in China, and what contribution may be made by the geoscience community.
Biography of the Speaker:
Dr. Di Zhou was granted bachelor in 1965 from the South China Industrial University, PhD in 1984 from the Kansas University. Since 1985 she worked in marine geology and mathematical geology in the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology. She served as the vice director of the Institute and chairman of the Scientific Steering Committee of the Institute, a council member of the International Association for Mathematical Geologists, the secretary of the International Committee of Quantitative Stratigraphy, and vice chairman of the Committee on Mathematics, Chinese Association for Geologists. Also she served as a member of the standing committee and a vice chairman of the Committee for Population, Resources, and Environment in the Guangdong Provincial Political Consultant Committee. In 2003-2005 she worked as one of the lead authors of Chapter 5, the IPCC Special Report “Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage”. In 2006 she organized the first CDM and CCS workshop in Guangdong Province. From 2009 to 2013 she led the first two research projects on CCS feasibility in Guangdong Province. Since 2014 she served as the vice chairwoman of the Consultant Committee of the UK-China (Guangdong) CCUS Center. In April 2015 she was granted the “Award of Distinction” from the USDOE for her achievement in CCUS.
