After the success of our 2012 “Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Chemistry and Polymers” nova will start a second edition of this conference in 2013. On 7th-9th October we will present our conference on carbon dioxide as a feedstock for chemicals and polymers with some of the world’s leading experts in carbon dioxide utilization. Conference participants will gain an invaluable overview of the ways that have already been paved for a sustainable carbon dioxide economy, and will learn about the solutions that international leading companies, universities and research centres have envisaged for the short and medium term. We expect at least 300 international participants from industry and academia. The conference language will be English.
