Innovation Award “Best CO2 Utilisation 2019“!



The “Top 6” candidates are nominated for the first innovation award “Best CO2 Utilisation 2019”

Biotechnological CO2 conversion. High value-added chemicals. Concrete. CO2-based fertilizer production. CO2 utilisation for cosmetic waxes. Even an independent system for homeowners to produce fuel from CO2. Everything and more is possible right now!

Six new technologies and products from five different countries have been selected out of 20 applications and are now nominated for the innovation award of the “7th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers”, 20-21 March 2019 in Cologne, Germany. The Innovation Award is sponsored by Covestro and organised by nova-Institute.

The call for the first innovation award “Best CO2 Utilisation 2019” has attracted a tremendous number of outstanding innovations in the field of Carbon Capture & Utilisation (CCU) highlighting how active companies are in the implementation of CCU. The abundance and quality of the applications have surprised and inspired the advisory board and made the selection of the nominees a hard piece of work. This sparked the decision to not only introduce the “Top 6” candidates in detail, but also briefly present the other 14 outstanding applications that regretfully were not selected as finalists.

After a short presentation of all nominees, the three winners will be elected by the participants of the “7th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers”. The award ceremony takes place in the evening of the 20th of March.

Take part in this unique event and elect the innovation winner!
