The Royal Thai Embassy in Copenhagen in collaboration with Thailand Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage Alliance (Thailand CCUS Alliance: TCCA), led by the Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Research Group Chiang Mai University (Chiang Mai CCS) invited 2 experts from Denmark namely Professor Nicolas von Solms from the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and Mr. Søren Reinhold Poulsen, Head of Producing Asset and CCS of the Greensand Project, to be speakers in the International CCUS Symposium held in Bangkok on 6 June, 2024 with participation of the Director-General of the Department of European Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as executives of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, who gave opening remarks. There were about 100 attendants in the symposium including CCS experts, and researchers from various countries, as well as the private sector such as Siam Cement Group (SCG) and PTT Exploration and Production (PTTEP).
This inaugural symposium, organized by the TCCA, served as a platform for exchanging knowledge and enhancing collaboration between the government, public, and academic sectors to develop and implement CCUS technology within Thailand. This cutting-edge technology aims at reducing carbon dioxide emissions, creating opportunities to effectively advance Thailand's strategic goals of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2065.
 
Later on 7 June 2024, the Chiang Mai CCS invited the speakers to give another special lecture and workshop at the Faculty of Engineering, Chiang Mai University about CCS technology and innovation. The speakers were welcomed by Associate Professor Dr. Cheowchan Leelasukseree, Head of the Department of Mining and Petroleum Engineering, Associate Professor Dr. Natthanan Promsuk, Associate Professor Dr. Suparit Tangparitkul, researchers and students.
 
The project was successful conducted as the starting point of cooperation between Thailand's TCCA network and Denmark's Greensand project as well as the DTU in the development of CCUS knowledges for industry clusters related to CCUS technology in Thailand.
