Battelle Shines on Global Stage at the 16th Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies Conference in France

A contingent of employees representing all career stages from Battelle’s energy group recently participated in the 16th Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies Conference (GHGT16) in Lyon, France.

Hosted by the International Energy Association Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG), an international technology collaboration program, the biennial GHGT16 convened researchers from across the world to discuss greenhouse gas mitigation, mainly through carbon capture, utilization, and storage.

Battelle was well-represented throughout the four-day event, with seven employees chairing technical sessions and making both oral and poster presentations. “We give updates on our research and efforts regularly, but conferences like GHGT16 give us the opportunity to share the progress we are making toward the mission of the regional initiatives by the Department of Energy to advance CCUS deployment with people working in capture and storage from across the world,” said Battelle Technical Director of Carbon Management Neeraj Gupta. “It is important as we are all working collectively toward a goal of global decarbonization.” 

In total, the Battelle team made five oral presentations. Technical Director, Geo-energy Modeling & Analytics Srikanta Mishra made three oral presentations throughout the conference touching on topics including the Department of Energy’s Science-informed Machine Learning for Accelerating Real-Time (SMART) Initiative, CO2 detection, and machine learning applications in geologic CO2 storage systems. Reservoir Engineer Priya Ravi Ganesh and Environmental Engineer Deepti Krishnan Nair tag-teamed a presentation for the United States Energy Association (USEA) exploring CCUS-coupled co-gasification of plastics as a potential negative emissions recycling technology for synthesis gas and hydrogen production in the U.S. Finally, Subsurface Geoscientist Aubrey Collie discussed chemically-enabled CO2-enhanced oil recovery in multi-porosity, hydrothermally altered carbonates in the southern Michigan Basin.

Altogether, the Battelle team had nine poster presentations during GHGT16. Gupta, Subsurface Geoscientist Stuart Skopec, Marketing and Communications Specialist Joy Frank-Collins, Ravi Ganesh, Krishnan Nair, and Collie each presented posters related to work done for the DOE-funded Midwest Regional Carbon Initiative (MRCI). Additionally, Senior Research Scientist Sanjay Mawalkar, Ravi Ganesh and Skopec presented posters covering a broad range of topics including predictive analysis of pressure and temperature in carbonate reservoirs and machine learning based near-real-time leakage detection for caprock integrity monitoring in CCS operations. 

Ravi Ganesh, Collie, and Skopec also chaired the Depleted Reservoirs & Injectivity, Multiphysics Monitoring II, and Other Storage sessions, respectively.
