ICCDU 2018 Abstracts are now open

The 16th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU XVI) will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from the 27th to 30th August 2018. The ICCDU XVI will be organized under the seal of the Brazilian Catalysis Society (SBCat)

The main focus of the conference is “Sustainability through CO2 Utilization” and will encompasses six topics: Thermal and Catalytic Conversion of CO2 into Fuels and Chemicals; CO2 Conversion by Electrochemical, Photochemical, Plasma-Induced and other non-Conventional Energy Sources; CO2 Conversion by Biotechnological Routes; CO2 Capture Processes; CO2 as Working Agent; Policies, Regulations, Life Cycle Analysis, Economic, Environmental and Social Aspects of Sustainable CO2 Utilization.

Abstract submission is now open at http://iccdu2018.com/ . We hope to see you there.

2nd Conference on Carbon Dioxide as a Feedstock for Chemistry and Polymers, Essen, 7-9 Oct 2013

With Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) a new family of technologies is emerging which will change the whole field of raw material supply massively: with help of renewable energy sources, CO2 is becoming a raw material for the chemical industry, and also especially the polymer and plastics industry. Be prepared!

At the biggest conference in Europe “2nd Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Chemistry and Polymers” in Essen (Germany, 7 – 9 October 2013, www.co2-chemistry.eu) the primary focus of the third day will be on CO2-based polymers:

Christoph Gürtler from Bayer MaterialScience (Germany) will present the latest news on the investment in CO2-based polyurethanes. Niklas von der Assen (RWHT Aachen, Germany) will show the first time LCA results on these materials. Speakers from Cardia Bioplastics (Australia), CSIRO (Australia), BASF (Germany), ICREA (Spain), Universities Wageningen (The Netherlands) and Sydney (Australia) will present the latest development on Polypropylencarbonate (PPC) and the combination PPC, biopolymers and fibres, Na-Acrylate for superabsorbers and also polymers from Algae Sugars and Hydrocarbons.

Stefan Bringezu (Wuppertal, Germany) will talk on carbon recycling for renewable material supply.

After lunch the topic will be “CO2 for Building Blocks”. LanzaTech (New Zealand), Oakbio (USA), University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (Belgium) will discuss CO2 as the ultimate substrate for a sustainable biotech industry and as a source for chemical building blocks.

The 3rd day will end with a discussion with the speakers of the day.

Please take a look to the full programme: www.co2-chemistry.eu/programme

Don’t miss this unique event to learn about CO2 based polymers from the leading scientists and companies and an invaluable occasion of new possible business to business collaborations!

Call for papers for the 12th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization

ICCDU
Now is the time to contribute one or more papers to the 12th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU).

ICCDU, which began in 1991 in Nagoya, Japan, has since been held in countries throughout Asia, Europe, and North America. The biennial conference provides a multi-disciplinary forum on recent innovations in fundamental and applied aspects of CO2 utilization.

The 2013 conference will focus on sustainable development through CO2 utilization and recycling for chemicals, materials and fuels. The goal of the conference is to emphasize recent trends in CO2 research and bring together the academic and industrial communities for the exchange of ideas, concepts, and innovations.

For more information, please visit out website, www.energy.psu.edu/ICCDU or download the Call for Papers. We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 meeting.

23-27 June 2013, the ICCDU XII will be held at the Westin Hotel in Alexandria, VA, a suburb of Washington D.C. The hotel is located near historic Old Town and walking distance from the King Street-Old Town Metro Station. Conference attendees will be able to take advantage of the proximity to many tourist attractions, museums, restaurants, airports, and government buildings.

Bayer CO2 utilisation video

Bayer has launched a pilot plant in Leverkusen which uses carbon dioxide for the production of plastics with the help of a new catalyst. This is the process that was described at the CO2Chem meeting on Bulk Chemicals in Manchester in January 2011.

Carbon Capture Research Event 14.07.11

CO2Chem and the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Community are holding a free joint event on Carbon Capture Research on Thursday 14th July 2011 at the East Midlands Conference Centre, University of Nottingham. Bookings are now open at http://carboncapture.eventbrite.com/. Please note the date change from the previous call for abstracts.

Our aim is to share recent research findings and future plans, facilitate networking amongst the academic community and industry and to help identify potential areas for future funding calls.

We are still accepting abstracts (300 word max.) from the academic community  for presentation as talks (15-20 min) on recent research in the area of carbon capture. Whilst industry stakeholders are welcome to attend the workshop, we are only accepting abstracts from the academic community. A number of abstracts will be selected based upon quality and general interest to the audience whilst balancing the topics. If your abstract is not selected you will be invited to give a 2 minute flash presentation on your work. Please send abstracts to me, by 30th May.

CC Research Network Event – Call for Abstracts

The CO2Chem network and UK Carbon Capture and Storage Community (UKCCSC) will be jointly hosting a workshop on Carbon Capture Research. The event will be held at the University of Nottingham on 6 July 2011. Our aim is to share recent research findings and future plans, facilitate networking amongst the academic community and industry and to help identify potential areas for future funding calls.

We are asking members of the academic community to submit abstracts (300 word max.) for presentation as talks (15-20 min) or posters on recent research in the area of carbon capture. Whilst industry stakeholders are welcome to attend the workshop, we are only accepting abstracts from the academic community. Due to numbers we may have to limit the number of abstracts accepted based upon quality and general interest to the audience whilst balancing the topics. If your abstract is not selected you will be invited to give a 2 minute flash presentation on your work.

Abstracts should be submitted to both networks at Katy Armstrong  at katy.armstrong@sheffield.ac.uk and Robin Cathcart at ukccsc@ed.ac.uk by 30 April.  We will let you know if your abstract has been accepted for presentation by 15 May.
