More than 250 leading international experts in CCU and Power-to-X are expected to attend the hybrid event on 17–18 April 2024, in Cologne, Germany.

Abstract and poster submission is open.

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.

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 will take place on 17-18 April 2024, Cologne, Germany as a hybrid event. Like in previous years, this event will again showcase the latest and most important developments in the fast-growing field of Carbon Capture and Utilisation with plenty opportunities to network.
