CO2 Forum actors : the triple helix composition

Science connected to CO2 recycling is confronted to this challenge: transform energetically
stable molecule into useful and safe products with energy from sustainable sources. This
requires chemical, bio-engineering, and process innovations.
The forum has therefore connected:

• Scientific academic community already directly involved in CO2 utilization, Pioneers in chemical and biochemical science and engineering and Specialists in sustainable energy sources.

• Corporate businesses showing the economic viability and business opportunity of Carbon Dioxide Utilization ( CDU)

• Policy orienteers bringing the overarching environmental context for CDU reach

Throughout the various editions of CO2 forum our speakers, chairs, organizing bodies ( and hundreds of participants!) have respected this triple helix composition:

• Business
• Academia
• Policy orienters
