2023 Partners and Exhibitors

Never before has there been such commitment from the private sector and government to reduce carbon emissions in the US. In order to achieve this the deployment of large-scale decarbonization projects will be key.

This September in Pittsburgh, join 30+ speakers and 200+ attendees from project developers, industrials, investors and government representatives to identify and tackle the core challenges in advancing CCUS and Hydrogen projects for decarbonization.

We will explore different business models, partnerships and financing structures for large scale projects and assess the benefits and challenges of developing industrial hub and cluster projects at scale.

Whether you plan to build, finance or collaborate with major decarbonization hub projects, Decarb Invest is the only place to meet the decision-makers and influencers from all the key stakeholders.

Take an active role in round table discussions, working groups and 1-2-1 meetings. This is a unique and effective way for you to expand your network.

Get to see decarbonization projects first-hand on a site visit with your peers. Previous visits include steel plant, hydrogen hub, port infrastructure, R&D Labs and CO2 utilization tech manufacturing facilities.

Site Visit for 2023

Shell Polymers Monaca (SPM) | 9.00-11.30am

Join us for a site tour to Shell Polymers Monaca, located just outside of Pittsburgh. This state-of-the-art facility, completed in 2022, is capable of producing 3.5 billion pounds of linear low and high density polyethylene annually.

On this tour, you will hear how the plant has been designed to be 100% energy self-sufficient, generating all its own electricity with enough excess power to power up to 50,000 local homes a day. You will also learn how the site leverages technology and local resources, such as the Ohio river, to run a safe, efficient, and clean operation.

If you’re looking for inspiration on how modern world-scale facilities are built and operated, this is an opportunity not to be missed. You’ll also benefit from the opportunity to network in an informal way with fellow attendees – a great kick off to your time at Decarb Infrastructure Invest.
