BEIJING RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF COAL CHEMISTRY
The International Centre for Sustainable Carbon has two categories of participants:
Contracting parties can be governments or entities nominated by them. They can also be international organisations in which governments participate.
Current contracting parties are: Australia, Italy, Japan and South Africa.
Our current sponsors: Beijing Research Institute of Coal Chemistry (BRICC)
Information about each of our members can be found in the membership directory.
Our membership has a range of depth and character which means there is a great networking potential within the International Centre for Sustainable Carbon. While most, but not all, of the contracting parties belong to the OECD, the sponsor organisations are primarily from non-OECD countries, and includes include utilities, coal companies, equipment and services suppliers and research organisations.
The members of the International Centre for Sustainable Carbon contribute annually to a common fund to finance the activities of the programme. At the twice yearly Executive Committee meetings the members determine the administrative and financial policies and select the studies programme. The Executive Committee comprises representatives from each member, each with a single vote at the meetings. Currently, Gianni Serra of Italy is Acting Chair of the Executive Committee. The ExCo meeting is a great opportunity for international networking, to hear about clean coal developments first-hand from range of experts, and to decide the work programme of the Centre.
