On December 1, 2022, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) will celebrate its second annual Carbon Management Day to recognize the essential role carbon management has in meeting the nation’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.

We chose to celebrate Carbon Management Day for the first-time last year on December 1 (12.01) because 12.01 is the atomic mass of carbon. And we are excited to be celebrating Carbon Management again this year by hosting a webinar on December 1, 2022 at 12:01 p.m. EST.

Why should you attend? We have 12.01 reasons!

  1. Celebrate Carbon Management Day by hearing from experts in the industry who are leading the charge forward in advancing carbon management solutions and infrastructure.
  2. Learn about the progress that the carbon management industry has made to date and the work that still needs to be done.
  3. Understand why both carbon removal and decarbonization are needed to meet the nation’s climate goals.
  4. Discover the portfolio of FECM initiatives and solutions that are helping to decarbonize the U.S. economy and accelerate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
  5. Meet FECM’s Assistant Secretary Brad Crabtree who will discuss how recent U.S. legislation is helping to deliver real-world carbon management solutions that meet the nation’s climate obligations while prioritizing energy justice.
  6. Hear first-hand from FECM’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary Dr. Jennifer Wilcox who wrote the first textbook on carbon capture! She will take a deeper dive into our accomplishments since the last Carbon Management Day webinar.
  7. Listen to a fireside chat featuring two FECM-project awardees who will discuss why carbon management is critical to their companies.
  8. Find out all the ways to get involved in the carbon management industry through our stakeholder engagement efforts.
  9. Ask questions (and get answers) about our carbon management research, development, demonstration, and deployment efforts during our live question and answer session.
  10. Join this fully virtual event from the comforts of your home, office, or even on your way to lunch—the webinar is just a click away.
  11. Be a part of the climate discussion; there is no greater time to get involved in the clean energy revolution.
  12. Help us make history by celebrating our second annual Carbon Management Day.

12.01 It’s free and open to the public (remember, registration is required!)

We hope you make plans to join us for this fun and engaging event.
