6th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers   —   March 15-16, 2018   —   Cologne, Germany

Meet leading international experts at one of the leading events on Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in the world!  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. Join the revolution, visit the conference, meet the leading entrepreneurs of the new industry.

Leading players will showcase enhanced and new applications using CO2 as feedstock. The conference will have four main themes; Policy & Visions, Artificial Photosynthesis & H2 Generation, Chemicals & Polymers and CO2-based Fuels and features a mix of keynote, oral and poster presentations.

For the sixth time, nova-Institute is organizing one of the leading events on CCU in the world: “6th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers”, 15 – 16 March 2018, Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany.

Our participants

The conference is aimed at providing international major players from the field of sustainable fuels, chemicals and polymers from CO2 with an opportunity to present and discuss their latest developments and strategies.
The participants include interested experts from industry, associations, policy and civil society who wish to get a full picture of how this new and exciting scenario is unfolding. The conference provides an opportunity to meet the right partners for future alliances.
