9th Conference on CO2-based Fuels and Chemicals in March

More than 200 leading international experts in Carbon Capture and Carbon Utilisation (Power-to-X) together with 20 exhibitors are expected to attend the 9th Conference on CO2 -based Fuels and Chemicals from March 23 to 24, 2021, in Cologne, Germany (www.co2-chemistry.eu). 
 
The main topics of the conference are strategy and policy in CCU, renewable energy and green hydrogen production, carbon capture technologies, CO2-based fuels for transport and aviation, CO2 -based building blocks, bulk and fine chemicals as well as advanced CCU technologies, a release said.
 
Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) is one essential pillar for the supply of renewable carbon besides biomass utilisation and recycling. The transition to the direct use of CO2 as one alternative carbon source is needed as a key element to substitute fossil sources, to fight climate change and to shift towards sustainable and climate-friendly production and consumption. 
 
For providing the full benefits of CCU technologies the use of renewable energy is indispensable. Especially the supply of green hydrogen is crucial for the production of CO2 -based fuels for transportation and aviation as well as for bulk and fine chemicals.
 
Therefore, the first day of the conference will focus on green hydrogen production and CO2-based transport and aviation fuels and includes the “2nd European Summit on CO2-based Aviation Fuels” in cooperation with IASA. Central topics of the second day will be carbon capture, CO2 -based building blocks, bulk and fine chemicals.
 
CCU technologies are essential to meet the future demand for carbon from renewable sources.
 
As a hybrid conference it combines a “live” in-person event with a “virtual” online component, www.co2-chemistry.eu.
 
Companies and institutes are welcome to present their latest products, technologies or developments – abstracts can be uploaded at www.co2-chemistry.eu/call-for-abstracts and posters at www.co2-chemistry.eu/call-for-posters. -- Tradearabia News Service
