Network event – Using CO2 as a sustainable feedstock for the fine chemicals industry

21st Sept 2011, 10am -5pm

Newcastle University

This is the third in a series of one day meetings organised by the EPSRC grand challenge network CO2Chem and is being organised by the University Research Centre in Catalysis and Intensified Processing at Newcastle University as one of the events to mark the launch of the Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability.

Following a launch meeting in September 2010 in London, previous CO2Chem meetings have focussed on ‘CO2 to Bulk Chemicals’ and ‘Carbon Capture Research. This meeting will focus on the applications of CO2 in the production of smaller scale but higher value chemicals associated with the fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors.

Carbon Capture Research – Joint UKCCSC and CO2Chem Meeting

A joint meeting of the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Community and the CO2Chem Network to hear about current UK research in the area of carbon capture.

 

The day will include presentations from members of both networks on their current research  and information on future funding opportunities

 

There is an optional networking dinner at 7pm – Cost – free for academics, £30 for industry

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.

Website Updates

The CO2Chem website now includes a full networking function, with different groups relating to specific areas of CO2Chem utilisation. Each registered member has a profile listing their interests in CO2 utilisation and can be sent messages from within the website. Registered members will be able to post updates in each group and discussion can take place. Some groups will be private whilst others will be open to public viewing.

To use the new networking function you will need to create a user name and password and then responded to an email.

More changes will be taking place over the next few weeks so keep checking back.

Ionic Liquids and carbon capture

Those at the CO2Chem network launch event will have heard Peter Styring of the University of Sheffield talking about ionic liquids and their use in carbon capture. Peter has just had a paper published on his work which can be found in Energy and Enviromental Science

CO2Chem Network Event 13.01.11

CO2 to Bulk Chemicals

Thursday 13th January 2011

Chill Factore, Manchester

A day to discuss the latest developments in utilising CO2 to create bulk chemicals.

The day is divided into plenary sessions and discussion workshops, with a plenary lecture by Prof. Dr Walter Leitner,Institute of Technical and Macromolekular Chemistry at RWTH Aachen University, Germany.

Each participant is invited to give a 2 minute flash presentation on their current work in this area and display a poster.

The aim of the day is to stimulate ideas and develop collaborative grant proposals.
