With the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) just behind us the thought of de-carbonisation technology is fresh on everyone’s minds. This revolutionary new field is expected to be a major source of carbon reduction in the near future.

Join us this December as we hear from two major players in the carbon capture field, Michael Evans (CEO of Cambridge Carbon Capture) and Dr Chris Coleridge (CEO and Founder of Carbon-13), who will give their insights on the current climate surrounding carbon capture technologies.

 

In addition to the above speakers and networking opportunities this event will also include a brief AGM for CETC members. The event will be held at HCR Hewitsons‘ office at 50-60 Station Road, Cambridge. Spaces for this event are limited and so early acceptances are advised.
