    February 17 at noon: Adam Sieminski, President of King Abdullah Petroleum Studies & Research Center, former administrator of US EIA, and former NCAC-USAEE President speaks on The Role of Circular Carbon Economy

    Former NCAC-USAEE President, Adam Sieminski

    This event is free to NCAC-USAEE members

    The circular carbon economy (CCE) is an integrated and inclusive approach to transitioning toward more comprehensive, resilient, sustainable, and climate-friendly energy systems. The corollary in the circular carbon economy is that people do not want bio-energy and carbon utilization; they want a safe climate and an improved quality of life. As such, the circular carbon economy welcomes all carbon mitigation options that can help achieve climate goals.

    The circular carbon economy builds on the principles of circular economy and applies them to managing carbon emissions: to reduce the carbon that must be managed in the first place, to reuse carbon as an input to create feedstocks and fuels, to recycle carbon through the natural carbon cycle with bioenergy, and, unique to circular carbon economy, to remove excess carbon and store it.

    Registration will close on the prior day, February 16, when registrants also receive the Zoom link. Members may access the recording and PowerPoint afterward by logging into www.ncac-usaee.org.
