Big visions – and 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 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.
After four times in Essen, this leading conference moves to Cologne in 2016 to have enough space for growth: nova-Institute expects more than 250 participants from 30 countries and 20 exhibitors and offers professional match making tools for efficient networking between the experts from industry, policy and research.
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, CO2-based Chemicals & Polymers and CO2-based Fuels and feature a mixture of keynote, oral and poster presentations.
