The Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Network


Second International Symposium on Electrochemical Synthesis of Fuels

October 26, 2013 – November 1, 2013 all-day
Hilton San Francisco
San Francisco

The aim of this symposium is to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest developments on electrolysis and related topics. The emphasis of this symposium is on recent advances relevant to the conversion and utilization of carbon dioxide and/or water for synthesis of fuels and other chemicals. The application of the same cells as fuel cells is of special interest, because reversible cells can be coupled with renewable power production in order to remove the temporal variation in the energy supply from solar and wind energy.

Papers are solicited on the following topics:
1. Materials for solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs) and solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), including electrolytes, electrodes, seals, and interconnects as well as proton conductor electrolysis cell (PCEC) and fuel cell (PCFC). Also contributions about cells with immobilized liquid electrolytes at elevated temperatures are solicited.
2. Electrochemical performance and stability of SOECs/SOFCs, PCEC/PCFC and other relevant cells.
3. Electrocatalytic phenomena in oxygen electrodes and fuel electrodes.
4. Photoelectrochemical approaches for conversion of carbon dioxide and/or water
5. Electrochemical and chemical technologies for carbon dioxide separation.
6. Novel materials or concepts for carbon dioxide conversion and capture.
