17th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization - ICCDU 2019
The 17th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU XVII)

CO2 utilization is moving from research to industrial application. Join the most famous academic conference on carbon dioxide capture, utilization and strategy-related aspects and learn more about carbon dioxide utilization from the perspective of industry, science and policy! Present your work on CO2 utilization at ICCDU 2019 and discuss your results with an interdisciplinary network of experts.

Key topics

-CO2-capture & separation CO2-reforming
-CO2 to carbonates
-CO2 as Working Agent
-CO2 to chemicals
-CO2 conversion to polymers
-CO2 activation
-Biotechnological CO2 conversion
-Electro- and photo-catalysis
-Applications of plasma technologies for CO2 conversion
-Power to X
-Public acceptance
-Policy aspects

From science to industrial application

The goal of the conference is to highlight research projects on Carbon Dioxide Utilization in all levels of maturity. Carbon dioxide can be used for many synthesis routes in the chemical industry. The spectrum of research in the field ranges from fundamental to applied science. Products like fuels, polymers, or building materials from CO2 are no longer a dream. Furthermore, the CO2 utilization roll-out has begun first applications are about to enter the market. Meet the industry and get in touch with successful companies at the forefront of sustainable chemistry.

Economics and environmental impacts as well as policy aspects

CO2-emission reduction targets and the goal to substitute fossil carbon for the production are two challenges that can be addressed by CO2-utilization technologies. Therefore, CO2 utilization will play a major role in the efforts of the society towards a more sustainable world, fighting climate change and reducing the dependency on fossil resouces.Furthermore, economical and policy aspects become essential for stakeholders.

Learn more about CCU from the perspective of environmental scientists, economists and politicians.

The International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization has been organized since 1991 in different parts of the globe, since 2015 as an annual event.

Workshop: „ Is there a life after the End-of-Life? Chancen und Wege für den Kreislaufschluss bei Polymeren“
CLIB als Koordinator des vom MKW geförderten regionalen Innovationsnetzwerks „Modellregion für eine innovative und nachhaltige Stoffstromnutzung“ lädt gemeinsam mit den Kernpartnern Deutsche Gesellschaft für Abfallwirtschaft (DGAW) und EnergieAgentur.NRW interessierte Akteure aus Forschung, Industrie und Gesellschaft ein, um das Thema End-of-Life von Polymeren zu diskutieren. Dabei sollen verschiedene Optionen zum Recycling dieser Stoffströme sowie relevante Regularien betrachtet werden. Welche Möglichkeiten gibt es für mechanisches oder werkstoffliches Recycling? Können Monomer-Bausteine wiederverwendet werden, oder ist eine Pyrolyse und Zuführung in Cracker der effizienteste Weg?

Das Thema Mikroplastik wird ebenfalls ein Rolle spielen und der Frage nachgegangen inwieweit biobasierte Stoffe hier eine Lösung bieten können. Dabei werden Quellen von Mikroplastik und auch Wege zur Vermeidung aufgezeigt. Der enzymatische Abbau von Polymeren wird in diesem Zusammenhang ebenfalls thematisiert - aktuelle Forschung zeigt, dass Enzyme auch fossile Polymere wie PET abbauen können und damit ein deutlich breiteres Anwendungsspektrum aufweisen als bisher angenommen.
