   The magazine has reported on asphalt technology in the past and the testing that is underway on new additives such as those derived from recycled tyres and know that it a subject of interest to our readers.

After the conference, the magazine will make available presentations and papers as appropriate.

Why is this conference of particular interest?

Promoting infrastructure development is something that Contractors World magazines will do more and more. That is the reason why we cover futuristic concepts such as the Thames Estuary airport. The editor, Roger Lindley, believes that this option is inevitable. When the green light is given then, because of the location of the airport, emphasis will be very much on environmental considerations. Airport and related infrastructures are massive uses of concrete and asphalt and key speakers at the conference are talking about the use of asphalt in such applications.

finding novel solutions to reduce the cost of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).CCS Projects Financed Through Government

Costain has secured financial support from the Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC) through a £20million programme for finding novel solutions to reduce the cost of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

As part of the climate change agenda, the UK Government held a CCS Innovation competition looking for new ideas to further harness the potential of carbon capture technologies.

Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Edward Davey, recently said: “Carbon Capture and Storage is a huge opportunity for our world class research industry. Through the projects we have selected, pioneering companies and universities will be able to create new jobs and expand their markets.”

Costain has been selected to develop two innovative technologies which aim to reduce the cost of low-carbon electricity generation through reducing the cost associated with carbon capture, and will work in cooperation with renowned UK universities.

In collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, Costain will investigate a novel concept for the design and construction of cheaper absorber columns to be used for post-combustion carbon capture in coal and gas power plants.

An improved oxyfuel capture technology will also be developed together with the University of Edinburgh and the University of Leeds, which will study innovative carbon dioxide separation and compression technology.
