Please see event summaries, pricing options and general information below. Programme details will be added as they become available.


The CO2Chem Summer School – Exploring CDU (2-4 September)

Carbon dioxide has been an important chemical feedstock for decades. There is growing interest in expanding this utilisation, including for chemicals, polymers, building materials and fuels.  Development and deployment of these modern applications is accelerating around the world.

Unlocking the new potential of carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) is a multi-disciplinary challenge and requires connectivity between discovery, scale-up and deployment. Future energy pathways dictate deployment strategies, while regulatory and fiscal regimes influence process viability. The CDU agenda links closely to those of climate change, energy security, circular economy, industrial renaissance, resource management and sustainable consumption.

The CO2Chem Summer School explores the Carbon Dioxide Utilisation agenda, including socio-economic and environmental underpinnings, central research challenges and latest drivers, progress and opportunities. The course suits post-graduates and early career researchers from across the engineering, physical and biological sciences – helping you to contextualise your current research, develop high impact lines of new enquiry, and engage and influence, or indeed forge careers, beyond academia.

 

CO2Chem Workshop (5 September)
The CO2Chem workshop is a new edition to our events calendar.  This standalone event, tailored for CDU professionals from across academia, industry and government, provides insight, training and discussion on key themes relating to Carbon Dioxide Utilisation. The workshop is a great opportunity for Continuing Professional Development. We will confirm the event title and themes shortly. The programme assumes a general knowledge and active interest in the field. For those with less experience, the preceding summer school would provide an excellent foundation and we encourage you to attend the two together.

 

Reception and Annual Dinner (5 September – evening)
The CO2Chem Reception and Annual Dinner is an opportunity to meet and network with other CO2Chem members. The early evening reception will include addresses from senior representatives of industry, academia and government.

 

CO2Chem 2019 (6 September)
CO2Chem 2019 is the third Annual Status Conference of the CO2Chem Network. This inter-disciplinary series offers a showcase of research from CO2Chem members based in the UK and beyond. Papers are by both invitation and also via submission of abstracts.

Abstract Submission:  Detail of conference themes and abstract submission process coming very soon.
