Carbon Capture and Sequestration and Environmental Justice
[Wed, Nov 8, 9:00 – 10:30 am Session]

Abstract:  A critical part of any Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) project is identifying and addressing Environmental Justice concerns.  Class VI well permit applications require an Environmental Justice Review, yet there is little guidance on structure and content. While data and data sources are plentiful, a systematic approach to synthesizing and presenting those data has yet to be established. Consistently, questions arise including:  Which demographic information is applicable to the project? How do we present and compare data? How will the project affect current environmental concerns for the project area? How do we identify stakeholders and, once identified, how do we perform effective outreach? This presentation will provide both an overview of the EJ review process and examples of targeted, effective community outreach implemented in pending Class VI permit applications. Using these proven techniques can help achieve your permitting and construction goals while supporting your community.

We hope to see you there!  Early Bird registration ends October 18.  Click for more conference details.
