Climate change is a global emergency that requires immediate actions. Reducing CO2 emissions is one of the most direct solutions. CO2 utilization has emerged as a promising tool to mitigate climate change and reduce the dependence on fossil fuels. If your organization is committed to valorise CO2 and want to be up to date on the technologies to transform it, this event will introduce you to new developments in terms of CO2 uses and will highlight the potential of chemistry to tackle the industrial challenges related with the transition towards a decarbonized economy by means of CO2 valorization. Innovative uses of CO2 for the industry will bring together experts in the field of renewable energy, development of new chemical products, fuel or/and polymers and will explore new research challenges for CO2 utilization.
