About the forum
CCUS is one of the most viable and important approaches to reduce our global greenhouse emissions and reverse legacy emissions. Set in Doha, Qatar, the CCUS Forum will bring together global experts, government bodies and technology providers, all working to develop pathways for innovation, low carbon technologies and the growth of a global green economy. Carbon capture, utilization, and storage can support hard to-abate industries as they transition to low carbon energy models, which is integral to the future of the GCC – home to some of the most energy and carbon intensive industries in the world.
The CCUS Forum is taking place from May 29th – 31st in Doha, Qatar. The Forum will be hosted at Le Royal Meridien Doha Hotel, located at Building 153, Street No. 347, P.O. Box 4010, Lusail, Qatar.
