John Beever is Chair of CO2 Value Australia, a Canberra-based think tank which represents researchers, developers and users of Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) technologies in Australia. John led the creation of CO2 Value Australia in 2019 to promote development and deployment of sustainable industrial solutions which transform captured CO2 into valuable products and to connect Australian industry with international CCU developments including through CO2 Value Australia’s partnership with CCU thought leader CO2 Value Europe.

Formerly a journalist and speech writer he became an Australian Government senior executive involved in industry regulation and policy. His last government appointment was as Chief Executive Officer of a national regulatory authority.

After leaving government service John Beever helped create and run a consultancy firm which helped Australian researchers and technology developers access government R&D support and grants.

Greg Leamon

Geoscientist & Consultant

Greg is a geoscientist and engineer. He has worked as a seismic geophysicist and manager for petroleum exploration companies, in university research and has been an advisor to various international organisations and governments.

Greg started work on carbon dioxide capture, transportation and geological storage in 2003, as a research engineer at the University of NSW, where he developed integrated techno-economic models and screened CCS projects across Australia for the CO2CRC. In 2007, he moved to Canberra to work for Geoscience Australia where he started several national GHG monitoring projects and provided technical advice to the Australian Government on development of Australia’s offshore regulatory regime for geological storage of greenhouse gases. Greg represented Australia in negotiations at UNFCCC COP meetings in Durban, South Africa (2011), and Doha, Qatar (2012), where CCS technologies were finally approved as an emission reduction technology under the Kyoto Protocol. He was then appointed to the UNFCCC’s CCS Working Group to provide ongoing advice on CCS methodologies and was a member of the European Union’s SiteChar Advisory Panel on Regulation (of CCS projects). Greg also had the good fortune of mentoring a number of senior scientists from China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) when they were drafting their national environmental regulations for CCS projects.

Greg is now semi-retired, but as a member of Standards Australia’s mirror committee on CCS, Greg continues to collaborate with CCS experts from around the world to develop international standards for CCS, specialising in quantification and verification, risk assessment and geological storage.

Greg is currently project leader for a new Standards Australia project: Technical Specification 5373 Carbon dioxide capture, transportation and geological storage (CCS) – quantification and verification of emission reductions.
