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.
