ExxonMobil’s Low Carbon Solutions Business

In this role, Erik is leading the company’s efforts to advocate for the appropriate government policies and regulations that will be needed to incentivize the wide-scale development and deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology around the world.

He will give the audience some insight on what carbon capture and storage actually is, how ExxonMobil’s new concept CCS will help to safely store CO2 in the Houston area. Why Houston? Mr. Oswald will explain just that, as well as how much CO2 this new concept could save. He will explain ExxonMobil’s role in helping to minimize emissions at a lower societal cost compared to other technologies.
