Keynote Speaker V

Prof. Dennis Leung
The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Title: Development and current status of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) Technologies
Abstract: Global warming and climate change concerns have triggered global efforts to reduce the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is considered a crucial strategy for meeting CO2 emission reduction targets. In this talk, various aspects of CCUS are reviewed and discussed including the state of the art technologies for CO2 capture, separation, transport, usage, storage, and life cycle analysis. The selection of specific CO2 capture technology heavily depends on the type of CO2 generating plant and fuel used. Among those CO2 separation processes, absorption is the most mature and commonly adopted due to its higher efficiency and lower cost. Pipeline is considered to be the most viable solution for large volume of CO2 transport. Among those geological formations for CO2 storage, enhanced oil recovery is mature and has been practiced for many years but its economic viability for anthropogenic sources needs to be demonstrated. There are growing interests in CO2 storage in saline aquifers due to their enormous potential storage capacity and several projects are in the pipeline for demonstration of its viability. There are multiple hurdles to CCUS deployment including the absence of a clear business case for CCUS investment and the absence of robust economic incentives to support the additional high capital and operating costs of the whole CCUS process. Lastly, the challenges and prospects of various carbon mediation measures, and their current status will be discussed.

Biography: Dennis Y.C. Leung received his BEng (1982) and PhD (1988) from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hong Kong. He had worked with the Hongkong Electric Co., Ltd. for five years heading the air pollution section of the company before joining the University of Hong Kong in 1993. Professor Leung is now a full professor and associate head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering specializing in environmental pollution control and renewable & clean energy development. He has published more than 420 articles in this area including 260+ peer reviewed top SCI journal papers. His current h-index is 60 and total citations are more than 16000. He is one of the top 1% highly cited scientists in the world in energy field since 2010 (Essential Science Indicators) and named as a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics in 2017 and 2018. Prof. Leung has delivered more than 60 keynote and invited speeches in many conferences as well as public lectures.
