The programme is based on leading keynote speakers who will provide science, technology and policy perspectives. Oral communications, poster, panel and round-table sessions expand on the major themes:
Session 1 : CO2 : THE CONTEXT . Keywords :
Climate mitigation, CO2 taxes and quotas, CO2 prices.
KEYNOTE RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT PRESENTATIONS
Session 2 : Materials (inorganic carbonates, organic chemicals by carboxylation and polymers). Keywords : Mineral carbonation, metastable carbonates, acrylates, PPC, olefins.
Session 3 : Fuels. Keywords :
Methanol, DME, methane, algae bioreactor, enzymatic conversion, bioethanol.
Highlight innovations in chemical, biochemical science and engineering on connected fields such as energy production, and cost analyses that can contribute to the CO2 recycling challenge.
Session 4 : Energies sources. Keywords : Renewable energies, decarbonated and ‘waste energies’, electrochemistry
Session 5 : Business, Funding opportunities and cost analyses. LCA, techno-economic analyses, funding bodies.
