DATA CENTRE / GHGT10 Amsterdam September 2010
GHGT10 Amsterdam September 2010


The In Salah team presented 18 technical papers and posters at GHGT10 in Amsterdam, more than any other CCS project group. GHGT10 is one of the main international conferences on greenhouse gas mitigation technologies. The conference has become a focal point for international research on CO₂ capture and storage.
