IMP Keynote Seminar: Combat Climate Change -- from zero emission to negative emission (Prof Hailong Li)


Classroom 2, Sanderson Building


Thursday, November 3, 2022 - 13:00 to 14:00


Climate change driven by human activities has become the biggest challenge facing our world today. To mitigate the climate change, CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is going to play a key role to achieve the goal set by the Paris agreement. However, the deployment of CCS has been far too slow. Meanwhile, cutting CO2 emissions to zero may not be good enough, as CO2 is already in the atmosphere, the temperature has already been increased. Moreover, there are still some unavoidable emissions. Therefore, the need of negative emissions has been raised, which can remove CO2 directly from air. Bioenergy with CO2 capture and storage (BECCS) is one of the most important negative emission technologies. It has been identified by the Swedish Energy Agency as a must technology to achieve climate neutrality within the timeframe set by the new act. This talk will give an overview about how BECCS can be implemented and the challenges to be overcome.

Keynote Speaker:

Dr. Hailong Li is a professor at Future Energy Center, Mälardalen University, Sweden. His research interest mainly lies in the development of innovative low carbon emission energy technologies. He has a long track record on CO2 capture and storage (CCS), with focuses on the influence of CO2 properties and impurities on the performance of CCS processes. Prof Li has published more than 100 scientific articles in peer reviewed journals and international conferences, with an H-Index of 55 (Google scholar).  He is currently serving as associated editor of Applied Energy (IF: 11.446, 2022) and the senior editor of e-Prime – Advances in Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Energy.
