Catalysis: from understanding to applications (Summer School)

The 1st Summer School “Catalysis: from understanding to applications” integrating heterogeneous, homogeneous and enzymatic catalysis, will be held in Albi (South West France) during June 18-21, 2019.

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 a sustainable chemistry.

This event particularity suits PhD students, Post-docs, Master students, and may also be of interest to academic and industrial engineers and researchers.

Event Website           Programme            Registration is open until April 30, 2019

CONNECTING SCIENCE & SOCIETY – Summer School Opportunity

CONNECTING SCIENCE & SOCIETY – COMMUNICATING RESEARCH ON SUSTAINABILITY AND GLOBAL CHANGE

The Potsdam Summer School 2019 is calling for applications now!

The event itself, taking place from August 20 through August 29, 2019 in Potsdam, Germany, will explore the importance of science communication in order to find effective ways of communicating highly relevant topics in the field of sustainability and global change.  The aim is to bring together talented early-career scientists and young professionals operating in the private sector, governmental agencies and non-governmental organisations from many different parts of the world to discuss frontier (research) questions on future sustainable development.

The Potsdam Summer School provides a unique opportunity for all participants to foster international cooperation and an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas. 

The programme will comprise lectures, various discussion formats, and interactive group work activities. The call for applications will start on February 01. The deadline for submitting applications will be on April 30.

CDU Postdoc at Swansea, UK

The Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is advertising a PDRA post based at Swansea to undertake studies in carbon dioxide utilisation. The work forms part of a project on Reduced Industrial Carbon Emissions (RICE) and will focus on electrolyser design and development for CO2 conversion to high value-added products.

Application deadline is 01-01-2019

 

 

 

 

 

Carbon Dioxide Utilisation – Online Resources

What are the best  information and engagement resources relating to Carbon Dioxide Utilisation?

We’d like to add sign-posts from our website. We’d be very interested to hear your suggestions.

This could be material aimed at schools, university, industry, government and/or for general public. It could cover general principles or more specific examples.

In the meantime here’s a video from CCm Technologies, a CO2Chem network member.

 

 

CO2 Reuse Summit 2019

CO2Chem is again media partner for the CO2 Reuse Summit, taking place on  8-9 May 2019 in Berlin. The event brings together major stakeholders from the industry to highlight latest developments related to carbon utilization.

The programme will address challenges and opportunities when it comes to technology, economics and policy. The organisers invite you to join your peers for 2 days of interactive presentations, case studies and networking sessions and to get involved in building a decarbonized society.

CO2 Utilisation Conference & Innovation Prize

Conference

The  nova-Institute is organizing the 7thConference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Fuels, Chemistry and Polymers. The conference is aimed at providing international major players from the field of sustainable fuels, chemicals and polymers from CO2 with an opportunity to present and discuss their latest developments and strategies. The participants include interested experts from industry, associations, policy and civil society who wish to get a full picture of how this new and exciting scenario is unfolding. The conference provides an opportunity to meet the right partners for future alliances.

Innovation Award

For the first time this year, there will be an associated Prize: “Innovation Award on the best CO2-based product or technology 2019”. Interested applicants will find all the information they need to take part in the competition here: http://co2-chemistry.eu/award-application/

 

Accelerating Breakthrough Innovation – Mission Innovation Reports

The Mission Innovation Carbon Capture Challenge aspires to provide a platform for advancing broad international collaboration in CCUS research and development that could significantly reduce CO2 emissions from power plants and energy-intensive industries.

The report is the collective outcome of the Mission Innovation CCUS Experts workshop, in which an international team worked collaboratively to identify research gaps and opportunities in CCUS.

It identifies research directions that will achieve revolutionary, not just incremental, advances. It is anticipated that researchers will draw on the findings to launch collaborative research efforts that accelerate the pace of CCUS innovation.

New funding for CCUS – ACT 2nd Call

The second ACT Call was published on 4 June 2018. ACT is an international initiative to establish CO2 capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) as a tool to combat global warming. The call is a great opportunity for anyone who has a unique idea for developing CCUS technology.

ACT means Accelerating CCUS Technologies, and the ambition of the 13 partners is to fund research and innovation projects that can lead to safe and cost effective technology.

The first ACT Call for project proposals was published in 2016 and resulted in eight new projects that were started autumn 2017.

The second ACT Call was published 4 June 2018. The budget for the call is up to € 30 M and the due date for applications is 12 September 2018. The call focuses on the priority research directions identified by the Mission Innovation (MI) CCUS Challenge Workshop that was held in Houston in September 2017. The full recently published MI report can be found here.

Katy Armstrong from CO2Chem was one of the invited experts at the MI workshop. She said

“It is fantastic to see this call announced to coincide with the release of the Mission Innovation CCUS report. The call will enable funds to be directed towards the priority research directions that were identified in Houston and therefore accelerating CCUS research.”
