The results of the 45 projects will be presented, including those of the newly created CO2 abatement program

On March 8 and 9, the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) will hold its fourth internal workshop in the amphitheater of the Mechanical and Naval Engineering building of the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo (Poli-USP), in São Paulo. The event, which takes place every six months, will bring together coordinators and researchers of the 45 RCGI projects, in order to present the results of the research done during these first 24 months of work. The RCGI research projects are divided into four programs: Engineering; Physicochemical; Energy and Economic Policies; and a CO2 Abatement Program, which was created in September 2017.

For this edition, the format of the workshop has been changed. Previously, the projects were divided according to their programs. Now, they will follow a randomly established order, divided into blocks that alternate projects of all of the programs during the two-day event. Each presentation will last 10-15 minutes, with an additional two minutes for questions.

The objective of the encounter is to present what has been taking place with each project, share results, hear suggestions, raise questions, and promote synergy between the different programs. The opening will be led by RCDGI’s Scientific Director, Julio Meneghini, on the morning of March 8, and by the Centre’s Director Publications and Knowledge, Gustavo Assi, who will welcome the participants. Following that, Alexandre Breda, Camila Brandão, and Pauline Boeira, representing Shell, which is one of the financing sources of the RCGI, will make presentations.
