Update from IEAGHG
The IEAGHG ExCo had its spring meeting on 17-18 May in Bali in Indonesia with Institute Technology Bandung (ITB) as host.
The meeting was both physical and virtual, with only partial Norwegian participation virtual.
Updates from IEAGHG’s work
IEAGHG is an observer to the IPCC’s Synthesis Report (SYR) of the 6th Assessment Report (AR6), which was published on 20 March 2023. IEAGHG has contributed several review inputs.
IEAGHG’s summer school was last held at ITB, Bandun, Indonesia in November 2022. Every year, a prize is given to the best students. This year it was a Norwegian student who received an award, Katherine Jimenez from NORCE in addition to Debanjan Chandra from Delft in the Netherlands.
Summary after GHGT-16
A summary of GHGT-16, which was held in Lyon in October 2022, has been prepared. At the GHGT conferences, it is a tradition that a “Greenman award” is issued to people who have contributed significantly within CCS. At the GHG-16 conference in 2022, Trude Sundset, former director of Gassnova, received the “Greenman award”.
An important part of the IEAGHG meeting is the review of reports that have been published since the last time, those that are underway and the adoption of new reports.
