Chemicals & Materials: 7th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers
Topics: Carbon Capture, Hydrogen, Fuels for Cars and Aviation, Chemicals and Polymers as well as Mineralisation
More than 70 participants are already registered - more than 200 leading international experts in CO2 utilization and 20 exhibitors are expected to attend the “7th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers”, 20-21 March 2019, in Cologne, Germany. Main topics of the conference are the new political framework, renewable energy and hydrogen production, artificial photosynthesis, carbon capture technologies, CO2-based fuels, chemicals and polymers as well as mineralisation.
Often, Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) is mostly considered as an option for alternative fuel production. But this view disregards the vast potential of carbon dioxide as a renewable carbon feedstock for the chemical industry. The organic chemistry cannot decarbonise, simply for the reason that it is defined by the chemical use of carbon - given this constraint, a renewable alternative to fossil feedstocks is needed. Many companies and projects are rising to this challenge and are developing or already producing chemicals and polymers based on CO2. By doing so, they demonstrate the capability of the chemical industry to prepare for a sustainable future.
