17-10-18 First 15 speakers confirmed: 6th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers

15 - 16 March 2018, Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany


++ Fuels, Proteins, Chemicals and Polymers as well as CO2 for Aviation ++ Meet the leading international experts at one of the leading events on Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in the world! ++ Preliminary programme online ++ More than 200 leading international experts in CO2 utilization and 20 exhibitors are expected to attend the conference ++ 

Big visions – and also real potential! The usage of carbon dioxide, among experts referred to as Carbon Capture & Utilization (CCU), is gaining momentum. First commercial production of CO2-based polymers has been launched, several additional technologies have progressed so far to allow production on an industrial scale in the near future – with advanced biotechnology and chemical catalysis. At the same time are renewable energy from solar, wind and hydro becoming cheaper each year and the latest plants at favourable locations are already at the same price level as fossil energy sources and even below. A perfect situation for combining cheap and abundant renewables with carbon utilization to store energy, to produce renewable fuels and chemicals. Renewable energy and CCU will reshape the energy system of the future and the chemical industry, too.

Leading players will showcase enhanced and new applications using CO2 as feedstock. The main topics are:
Political Framework, Sustainability, Renewable Energy and Hydrogen production, Artificial Photosynthesis and CO2-based Fuels, Proteins, Chemicals and Polymers as well as CO2 for Aviation. The first 15 speakers already confirmed their participation.
