CO2 Capture and New Technologies & Innovation and Strategy: 6th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock

6th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers

15 - 16 March 2018, Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany

++ Meet the international experts at one of the leading events on Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in the world! ++ Final programme online ++ 115 particpants registered - list of participants online ++ 200 leading international experts in CO2 utilization expected ++

Two valuable comments on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers:

Dr. R. J. Detz, Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) (NL)
“In our study we have calculated the current and future production costs of seven selected “solar fuel” manufacturing routes. Our techno-economic analysis gives insight in whether, how, and when these renewable fuels might become competitive alternatives for fossil fuels.”
Dr. Stefanie Kesting, CO2 Value Europe (EU) / Uniper Technologies GmbH (DE)
"CO2 Value Europe was created end of 2017 to connect all stakeholders along the CO2 value chains and across sectors, and to support the development of CO2 transformation technologies into viable and scalable business models. The Association aims to change the perception of CO2 to a valuable feedstock."

Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) is based on pure innovation. Representatives from leading funding bodies, one research institute and association will present and discuss different strategies for research and market introduction in the session "Innovation and Strategy“. Technologies for the capture of CO2 are crucial for the success of CCU. The sessions "CO2 Capture and New Technologies“ will present the recent status and outlook of these topics.
