Rob Littel, from Shell, will speak about how the company sees the future of energy, worldwide

Next July 6, the FAPESP-Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI), which is headquartered in the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo, will receive Rob Littel, General Manager Gas Separation at Shell, for the lecture Powering Progress Together: an industry perspective on energy, innovation and collaboration. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

Alexandre Breda, Executive Committee Representative from Shell, announces that Little’s presentation will deal with how Shell sees the future of energy, worldwide. “The subject is basically this: what are the challenges we will be facing and how can technology help us overcome them?” is his summary. According to Breda, Littel will present examples of technologies for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) that are being developed by the company, abroad, and he will be open to questions and discussion. “We want to know how the academe sees the future for energy in the world,” says Breda.

As the person responsible for gas separation technologies and CCS of the multinational company, Littel has already stated, at an event in which he participated in Brazil in the middle of last year, that CCS is merely one of the technologies available for making it possible to use fossil fuels without increasing emissions.

“We are look at all the possible technologies [for helping us with the emissions issue] as options. We line them up with energy and are committed to developing them as quickly as possible while, at the same time, being very open to other disruptive technologies. If there is a better technology, we will be on it! We will be happy to change course,” he said at that time.
