Close to 100 people attended CO2CRC’s Otway National Research Facility open day on Saturday 18 November 2017. In beautiful sunny conditions they learnt about the role the facility is playing in building a low emissions future for Australia and the world through carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Visitors were given guided tours of the facility where they heard about the newly begun $47million Stage 3 storage project.
The guests, which included the local community, students from Monash University and the University of Melbourne and CO2CRC research partners, enjoyed barista-made coffee and a gourmet barbeque lunch. The kids didn’t miss out with a giant slide, colouring in, ice creams and a fun demonstration of how carbon storage works using Tim Tams and milk.
The day was a great opportunity for CO2CRC to not only demonstrate the world-class research taking place at the site, but to thank the local community for their support.
