Sheffield, Monday 21st August 2017

In June, the IFRF’s General Secretary, Professor Mohamed Pourkashanian, attended the 8th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM8) meeting as part of a delegation from the Carbon Capture International Test Center Network (ITCN).

Ahead of CEM8, the energy ministers of Canada, China, Norway and the USA, and the heads of delegations from Australia and the European Commission – along with leaders from industry and key organizations – discussed the deployment of CCUS at an event organised by the International Energy Agency (IEA).  The meeting proved to be very interesting, with strong support from all the Minsters confirming that CCUS is a critical part of the clean energy mix for the future.
