CO2-based Fuels and Chemicals Conference 2024

17-18 April 2024, Maternushaus, Cologne (Germany), hybrid event

++ 230 participants from 27 countries registered ++ Program ++

The winners: Innovation Award “Best CO2 Utilisation 2024″

The CO2-based Fuels and Chemicals Conference is one of internationally established and has developed into a unique meeting and networking place for the entire Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) and Power-to-X industry and its customers. The upcoming 12th edition of this conference again will continue with this success and will showcase again the newest and most important developments in the fast growing field of CO2 capture and utilisation.

With a current capacity of over 1.3 million tonnes for CO2-based products and steadily growing demand, smart Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) technologies are helping to establish CO2 as a renewable carbon feedstock. Innovative technologies and materials are crucial to meet the increasing demand for fossil-free carbon, e.g. derived from CO2 or biomass, especially in the chemical and fuel sector.

New and leading players demonstrate novel and improved applications based on the use of CO2 as feedstock. Main topics of the conference include innovation, strategy & policy in CCU, carbon capture technologies, green hydrogen production, Power-to-X for fuels (transportation and aviation), CO2-based chemicals, materials and polymers, mineralisation and advanced technologies, research for CCU, and artificial photosynthesis.

Address from Minister Mona Neubaur

The chemical industry is playing a major role in the transition to the climate-neutral industrial region we want to become. The 12th CO2-based Fuel and Chemicals Conference is a big part of the move to intertwine climate action, innovation and resource security, also with a view to utilising CCU as part of a sustainable carbon economy.
