4th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers

29 - 30 September 2015, Haus der Technik (HDT), Essen, Germany

CCU are on top of the European research agenda / Highly dynamic drive and close to implementation!

++ First speakers confirmed! ++ free booth - only a 2-days conference entrance ticket is needed! ++ 

In the last years the explosion of interest in CO2 has led to a new awareness at industrial, societal, and scientific levels with the result that CO2 is no longer a mere waste product, but rather a low cost and abundant raw material! Carbon dioxide as chemical feedstock is a big challenge and chance for the sustainable future of chemical industry.

For the 4th year in a row, the nova-Institute will organize the conference „Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers" on 29 – 30 September 2015 in the “Haus der Technik” in Essen, Germany.

Over the last few years, the rise of this topic has 
developed from several research projects
 and industrial applications to become more and more dynamic, especially in 
the fields of solar fuels (power-to-fuel,
 power-to-gas) – but also in CO2-based chemicals and polymers. Several players are very active and will showcase some enhanced and also new applications using carbon dioxide as feedstock. The conference will be the biggest event on Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in 2015.

Our goal is to connect more than 200 participants from the leading industrial and academic players in CO2 utilization that are expected to attend the conference and to share their recent success stories, as well as new ideas and products in implementation. We hope also you will be part of this opportunity to get in touch with this innovative and active network.

Our participants

Attending this conference will be invaluable for businessmen and academics who wish to get a full picture of how this new and exciting scenario is unfolding, as well as providing an opportunity to meet the right business or academic partners for future alliances.

Call for posters and papers

Even though the programme is almost complete, there are still some slots open, mostly for utilization of carbon dioxide in the area of chemistry and polymers as well as for some innovative aspects of artificial photosynthesis. Additionally we would like to present your latest research on these topics in our posters session. So if you would like to add your research and processes to our conference programme, please contact us: achim.raschka@nova-institut.de or barbara.dommermuth@nova-institut.de


The conference is being organized by nova-Institut GmbH. The institute was founded as a private and independent institute in 1994. It is located in the Chemiepark Knapsack in Huerth, which lies at the heart of the chemical industry around Cologne (Germany).
 For over 15 years now, the nova-Institute has been globally active in feedstock supply, techno-economic evaluation, market research, dissemination, project management and policy for a sustainable bio-based economy.
