A huge number of scientists, researchers, professionals (around 1000) coming from Universities, Institutions and Company from all over the world, made presentations focusing on the technologies and the developments in the field of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS). 
During the conference, an exhibitor space has been reserved for the Chair Gaz Naturel – Petrosvibri (EPFL), in which were presented the research activities done at the Chair, focusing on the advanced multiphysical testing and modelling of CO2 storage.
