Following the success of its previous editions, our 9th Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit will explore the ongoing developments of turning waste CO2 into profitable, commercially viable opportunities. With insights from key industry players from pilot stage to full scale entities, the conference will address both the technical and commercial aspects of CO2 Utilisation in Europe and across the globe.

This edition of the summit will highlight the different projects in place or expected to happen in the CO2 utilisation, across the various segment (fuels, chemicals, renewables, building...).

The two days event will propose an in-depth look into these various projects, as well as challenges & opportunities but also policy & regulation, framing the industry. The participants will also have the chance to discuss how to keep the industry thriving as a whole and the potential role of CO2 utilisation in the future.

Key Topics

  • Getting the Industry together to Accelerate Market Deployment of CO2 Utilisation
  • CO2 Utilisation's Role in a Sustainable Future
  • Policy & Regulation
  • Life Cycle Assessment of CO2 Utilisation Projects
  • CO2 Bio Conversion to Renewables
  • Electrochemical Reduction of CO2
  • CO2 to Fuels
  • CO2 to Chemicals & Materials
  • Applications for CO2 Mineralisation
