  • How to get a Carbon Capture project off the ground.

    ISA Los Angeles Section - Virtual presentation on Carbon Capture - April 12, 2022 11:30AM-12:30PM (Pacific Time) 

    How to get a Carbon Capture project off the ground.

    Presented by
    Jon Isley P.E. Senior Director of Process Technology Fluor Canada
    &
    Simon Lucchini, Retired Fluor Engineer

    This is a friendly reminder for Tuesday's session.

     

    Please find meeting invite for the April section meeting attached, two industry leaders will discuss carbon dioxide capture and sequestration (CCS) and why it is a viable and proven method to meet the world's climate change commitments using existing technology while leveraging available resources and infrastructure.

    Carbon capture opportunities exist across various industries and applications, from traditional energy production and newer blue hydrogen generation to heavy industries such as steel and cement production. Commercial options for carbon capture technologies using amine-based solvents will be discussed, including specific examples developed for both pre-and post-combustion carbon capture solutions. The relative merits of carbon capture options will be compared, including an examination of business drivers and a discussion about the critical ingredients recommended to deliver a successful carbon capture project.

    Carbon dioxide capture and sequestration (CCS) is a viable and proven method to meet the world’s climate change commitments using existing technology, while continuing to leverage available resources and infrastructure. Carbon capture opportunities exist across a spectrum of industries and applications, from traditional energy production and newer blue hydrogen generation to heavy industries such as steel and cement production.
    Commercial options for carbon capture technologies using amine-based solvents will be discussed, including specific examples developed for both pre- and post-combustion carbon capture solutions.
    The relative merits of carbon capture options will be compared, including an examination of business drivers and a discussion about the key ingredients recommended to deliver a successful carbon capture project.
    Presenters
    Jon Isley P.Eng - Senior Director of Process Technology for Fluor Canada.
    He has over 27 years of process engineering design and leadership experience and offers technical expertise in process technologies such as hydroprocessing, hydrogen generation, gasification and syngas technologies including carbon capture. Jon's journey into carbon capture began as lead process engineer for Fluor on the Quest Carbon Capture Project, which successfully started-up in 2015 and has since sequestered over 5 million tons of CO2.
    Simon Lucchini has 40 years of experience in all phases of Safety Instrumented Systems design from Hazard Identification, Systems Specification, Design, Systems Verification and Audit, Operations and Maintenance for the Petro-Chemical process industry. He has worked in the Process industry in roles ranging from operations/maintenance to corporate engineering and project engineering. Simon, now retired, was most recently the Fluor Global Fellow in Safety Systems Design and the Chief Controls Specialist based at the Fluor Calgary Alberta Canada office. He has written papers on Safety Systems for various industry and academic venues. He has co-authored an ISA book on safety systems and written two chapters in Bela Liptak Instrument & Automation Engineer’s Handbook (5th Edition).
