Info: The Future of Chemicals & Fuels: CO2 and Renewables – 8th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers


The use of CO2 for chemicals and fuels as being the broadest and the most interesting area of CO2 utilisation has not only shown technology diversification but with it an expansion of product portfolios.

Long established techniques as Fischer-Tropsch processes for CO2 conversion are now supported by electrochemistry for CO2 reduction to e.g. methanol. Besides, these fuels can also be used as platform chemicals for the chemical industry. Regarding the future demand for alternative protein sources biotechnological CO2 conversion to single cell proteins is a promising solution. Get insights into these technologies and products, learn about the latest developments and discuss with the leading experts in this field:  Session on Chemicals & Fuels
