GMPV Campfires co-hosted with ERE Division: Sustainability Talks! Wednesday 16th June @ 11am CEST

Together with the Energy, Resources and the Environment (ERE) Division we organized a new special edition of Campfires focused on sustainability. The upcoming talks will be held on Wednesday 16th June @ 11am CEST over Zoom and will be divided into three main topics: 1) Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS); 2) Sustainable Mining; 3) Urban aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES).

Our speakers are:

  1. Kieran Gilmore (PhD Student @ Cambridge University) – Carbon Capture and Storage: In the pipeline or still a pipedream?
  2. Carolina Nogueira Mafra (PhD student @ University of Western Australia) – The contribution of automated mineralogy to the prediction of acid mine drainage of sulfidic tailings.
  3. Christian Wenzlaff (PhD student @ Technical University of Berlin and GFZ – German Research Centre for Geosciences) –  High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage in a geologically complex carbonate reservoir below Berlin: Reservoir characterisation and storage performance evaluation.


Talk attendance is by registration only and you can register here 

Looking forward to seeing lots of you there!

Thanks to Morgan Tranter – ECS representative of ERE Division – for co-organizing the talks!


We’re looking for new speakers! No matter what career stage you are at, we want to hear about your science. You can sign up to give a live GMPV ECS talk in one of our future events using this google form:

You can also give us FEEDBACK on any of our talks here
