Welcome to www.renewable-carbon.eu, the website showcasing nova-Institute’s many services around renewable carbon: the bio- and CO2-based economy as well as chemical recycling. nova-Institute is a science-based research and consultancy company. Organiser of leading expert conferences, workshops and webinars.
ReCaCo – International Directory for Renewable Materials
The leading business directory for the bio-based, CO2-based and recycled materials gives you the opportunity to look up suppliers, partners and service providers or present your own company and products to the right audience for you.
nova-Institute is a private and independent research institute, founded in 1994; nova offers research and consultancy with a focus on a smart transition of the chemical and material industry to renewable carbon.
What are future challenges, environmental benefits and successful strategies to substitute fossil carbon with biomass, direct CO2 utilisation and recycling? What are the most promising concepts and applications? We offer our unique understanding to support the transition of your business into a climate neutral future. Our subjects include feedstock, technologies and markets, economy and policy, sustainability, communication and strategy development.
What is renewable carbon?
Renewable Carbon entails all carbon sources that avoid or substitute the use of any additional fossil carbon from the geosphere. Renewable carbon can come from the biosphere, atmosphere or technosphere – but not from the geosphere. Renewable carbon circulates between biosphere, atmosphere or technosphere, creating a carbon circular economy.
How does it differ from the bioeconomy and circular economy? This page provides a definition and background on the renewable carbon strategy and why it is relevant to you.
Renewable Carbon Events
nova-Institute hosts workshops and conferences, big and small, for an expert audience. Some related to our research projects, some as stand-alone events. Most notable the Renewable Materials Conference (www.renewable-materials.eu), International Conference on Cellulose Fibres (www.cellulose-fibres.eu), Conference on CO2-based Fuels and Chemicals (www.co2-chemistry.eu) and the nova Sessions, a series of workshops on pressing political issues and market developments. On this website, you can find all upcoming events.
Renewable Carbon Publications
nova-Institute is not only part of many research projects putting out valuable information on bio-based and CO2-based chemicals, building blocks, polymers and materials as well as chemical recycling topics, we also publish additional reports and background papers on policy, markets & trends as well as technologies around the renewable circular economy.
Renewable Carbon Graphics
We firmly believe in making knowledge accessible: not only offer we free reports to spread the knowledge on renewable carbon-related topics but supplements the written word with attractive graphics free for non-commercial use to inform the research and industrial community as well as educate the public.
Renewable Carbon News
Relevant press releases, interviews and general news keep you informed about the latest innovations, inventions, investments and developments in bioeconomy, industrial biotechnology, bio-based chemistry and materials, CO2-based materials, Carbon Capture & Utilisation (CCU) and Power-to-X industries as well as chemical recycling.
