Discussion featuring experts, industry and community members
The World Resources Institute (WRI) will launch a new report, Guidelines for Community Engagement in Carbon Dioxide Capture, Transport and Storage Projects, and host a panel discussion on how to engage people concerned about Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects in their backyards.
Jonathan Lash, president of WRI, will provide opening remarks. He will be followed by a panel of experts on CCS, community leaders from the FutureGen projects, and a representative from American Electric Power (AEP).
