We now have 29 technical sessions ands expect to offer at least 170 technical presentations.  The deadline for receipt of abstracts has been extended indefinitely; if we have a slot on the program we will fill it.  Click here for the Call for Papers Clearwater Conference 2024 Call for Papers

Highlights of the Clearwater Clean Energy Conference:

  • Topics are highly relevant and advanced;
  • Science and Technology driven;
  • Aimed at Clean Energy Supply;
  • Attendance can be actual or virtual;
  • Prime location;
  • Reasonably priced;
  • Participants are highly qualified and from many countries with 40% of the papers coming from China, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Japan, Greece, Germany, Poland, Thailand and India.

The Keynote Presentations, Short Courses Workshop and Technical Sessions cover all the critical technological issues of the day as we explore various aspects of carbon dioxide; this includes an all day Workshop on Monday, June 17th.  To accommodate international speakers, we are offering in person and virtual presentations.  And this is also available to our attendees who also might not be able to attend in person.

The Clearwater Clean Energy Conference offers participants approximately 200 technical presentations in four days. While all presentations will be offered virtually, we realize that some of you may want to be with us in Clearwater.  In that case we will review the numbers and decide what is feasible.

Leading the way for us are our four committee cochairs:

  • Lawrence E. Bool, Linde
  • Ronald Breault, National Energy Technology Laboratory, U.S. Department of Energy
  • Ashwani Gupta, University of Maryland
  • Dr. Edmundo Vasques, Clean Energy Technologies
  • They work to bring to you a comprehensive program covering what is happening now and what we see in the future.

Your suggestions, comments and ideas are always welcome, and I look forward to hearing from many of you.
