Overview

Launched in 2017, the New Carbon Economy Consortium (NCEC) is a growing alliance of 16 universities, national labs, and NGOs working in partnership with industry leaders to build a carbon-conscious world convened by Arizona State University’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory (ASU GFL) in partnership with Carbon180. Through a robust network, the NCEC continues to build the intellectual basis for engineered, biological and social solutions, and – most importantly – their implications for society. 

The NCEC 2024 Annual Meeting will be held April 29 - May 1 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada where participants can share their latest research and updates, engage in discussions in CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage) and work with new carbon economy companies to troubleshoot and consult on current industry challenges.
