17th Carbon Dioxide Utilization Summit

This ACI event in Brussels presents current and future initiatives and projects in the field of CO2 utilisation. Participants can learn about the possibilities of partnerships in industrial clusters, best-practice examples in the field of LCA and regulatory developments. The day before, a tour of ArcelorMittal's Steelanol plant in Ghent (Belgium) will take place.   

19. - 20. Nov 2020

Hydrogen Technology Conf & Expo und Carbon Capture Technology Conf & Expo

The conference Hydrogen Technology and Carbon Capture Technology will deal with two topics that are of great relevance for a future "low-carbon economy". One of the topics will be the hurdles in water and fuel cell technologies in the realisation of a sustainable energy transition. Representatives of different industrial sectors are invited to discuss the problems of production, storage and infrastructure of hydrogen technologies. At the same time, the Carbon Capture Technology Conference will provide information on the use and storage of emissions. The topics of a more sustainable use of raw materials and the possible integration of CO2 into the intended recycling economy will also be discussed.

7. - 9. Apr 2021

RSC Faraday Discussion on Carbon Dioxide Utilisation

In April 2021, the Royal Society of Chemistry hosts a Faraday Discussion on CO2 use. The Faraday Discussion format has been in existence for over 100 years and is aimed primarily at scientists and doctoral students. Further information about the event as well as an explanatory video on the history of the traditional Faraday Discussion can be found on the event's website.

18. - 22. JUL 2021

ICCDU 2021 - 18th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization


The ICCDU XVIII was to take place in South Korea from 19 to 23 July 2020. However, due to the Corona pandemic, the event has been postponed until 18 to 22 July 2021. Further information on the new event date, registration and programme can be found on the event website.

Final Conference EU H2020 Project "CarbonNext"

CO2-Utilisation, 17th July 2018, Brussels, Belgium

CarbonNext evaluates the potential use of CO2/CO as carbon-feedstock for the process industry in Europe. Learn more about the whole carbon value chain – from mapping of CO/CO2 all over Europe, identified processes and products where alternative carbon sources can be used – and get in touch with an interdisciplinary network of CCU stakeholders.

More information will be available soon.

AAAS Meeting 2019 - Carbon Dioxide Utilization (CCU): An Opportunity to Tackle Climate Change

CCU, 17th February, Washington, USA

Tackling the root cause of climate change requires a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, of which Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is the most prominent.

CCU converts waste CO2 into sustainable everyday products such as fuels, chemicals and materials. This is a prime example of a circular economy.

This session will provide a forum for exploring the opportunities and challenges of CCU.
