For the fifth time, nova-Institute is organizing one of the leading events on Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in the world: “5th Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers“, 6 – 7 December 2016, Maternushaus, Cologne, Germany.  After four times in Essen, the conference moves to Cologne to have enough space for growth: nova-Institute expects more than 200 participants from 30 countries and 20 exhibitors and offers professional match making tools for efficient networking between the experts from industry, policy and research.

Big visions – but also big potential. The usage of carbon dioxide, among experts referred to as “Carbon Capture & Utilization”, is gaining momentum. These days several technologies are so sophisticated to allow production on an industrial scale in the immediate future. The use of CO2 with renewable energy has also very high potential. Some CCU technologies are already far developed and upscaling to industrial scale is lining up; other promising technologies are still in the laboratory or pilot scale.

The conference will tackle key issues of the industry:

  • Which are the most promising technologies for CO2 capture, hydrogen production and the production of fuels, chemicals and polymers?
  • And what is the right way of implementation, are research programs enough or are specific market incentives necessary?

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 feature a mix of keynote, oral and poster presentations.

More than 200 participants from 30 countries expected

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.
