The Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Network

Events Calendar

Events and meetings organised by or partnering with CO2Chem on carbon dioxide utilisation.

Catalysis: from understanding to applications
Jun 18 – Jun 21 all-day

The 1st Summer School “Catalysis: from understanding to applications” integrating heterogeneous, homogeneous and enzymatic catalysis, will be held in Albi (South West France). The School presents modern approaches to understand the mechanism of homogeneous, heterogeneous and enzymatic catalytic reactions, with a focus on the activation of small molecules. A foundation for those seeking to develop new catalytic systems for sustainable chemistry. The event particularly suits PhD students, Post-docs and Master students. It may also be of interest to academic and industrial engineers and researchers. Registration is open until April 30, 2019

ICCDU 2019 @ Aachen, Germany
Jun 23 – Jun 27 all-day

The 17th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU XVII)

Join the conference in Aachen, Germany, from 23rd to 27th June 2019 and learn more about carbon dioxide utilization from the perspective of industry, science and policy!

The International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization organized since 1991 in different parts of the globe. Since 2015, the event occurs annually. ICCDU is the most famous academic conference on carbon dioxide capture, utilization and strategy related aspects.

The goal of the conference is to highlight research projects on Carbon Dioxide Utilization in all levels of maturity!

The spectrum of research done in the field ranges from fundamental to applied science. Present your work on CO2 utilization at ICCDU 2019 and discuss your results with an interdisciplinary network of experts. Furthermore, the CO2 utilization roll-out has begun – first applications are and about to enter the market. Meet the industry and get in touch with the forefront of successful companies.

The following key topics of the conference are open for abstract submission:

  • CO2-capture & separation
  • CO2-reforming
  • CO2 to carbonates
  • CO2 as Working Agent
  • CO2 to chemicals
  • CO2 conversion to polymers
  • CO2 activation
  • Biotechnological CO2 conversion
  • Electro- and photo-catalysis  
  • Applications of plasma technologies for CO2 conversion
  • Power to X
  • Public acceptance
  • Policy aspects

The abstract submission will be from 1st November 2018 – 31st January 2019.

As in previous years, CO2Chem will have travel bursaries available for those giving presentations at the ICCDU 2019 from UK universities. Details of the travel bursary scheme will be announced in early 2019. All bursaries are subject to an accepted abstract at the conference.

Sustainability Metrics – Tracking, Measuring and Reporting Responsible Innovation
Sep 11 all-day

Measure and monitor your supply chain’s performance with appropriate and easy-to-use sustainability metrics.

Existing industrial sustainability metrics primarily focus on the chemical process, although the need to consider the performance of a “bigger picture” is prevalent and growing. This workshop is dedicated to demonstrating current trends and practices in applying qualitative and quantitative sustainability evaluation practices, through use of LCA and other industrial bestprocedures.

Wednesday 11th September 2019, 9.30am—4pm Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence, Department of Chemistry, University of York

The event forms part of the STAR-ProBio project.


4th EuCheMS Conference on Green and Sustainable Chemistry @ Tarragona, Spain
Sep 22 – Sep 25 all-day

This conference continues the successful meetings held in Budapest (2013), Lisbon (2015) and York (2017) and offers opportunities to discuss the latest developments in green & sustainable chemistry, creation of new partnerships and amplifying existing networks between academia and industry.

The leading topics of this conference will focus on green/bio-polymers, photochemistry & catalysis, electrochemistry & catalysis, carbon dioxide valorization and biomass conversions. These topics continue to challenge the chemical community as a whole but also offer new opportunities for chemistry to alleviate the negative effects of conventional chemical production transitioning toward more sustainable technologies.

During the EUGSC-4, there will be a joint session co-organized by the Division of Chemistry and the Environment (DCE) that will focus on water treatment.
