The perception of carbon dioxide as a waste product is being challenged by a new wave of industrial applications. CO₂ utilization is now set to play an important role in the development of alternative fuels, ways to tackle climate change and the synthesis of high value chemicals.

Spread over two days in San Diego (AKA America's Finest City), ACI’s Carbon Dioxide Utilization Congress will examine a wide range of CO₂ applications, featuring reports on the latest technologies along with fresh perspectives on established processes such as enhanced oil recovery. There will also be a focus on the implications of CO₂ utilization for the environment and the energy sector as a whole, with speakers coming from international corporations, renowned universities and regulatory bodies.


*Overcoming Barriers to Wider Adoption of CO₂Utilization Applications*
*CO₂ as an Asset: Potential Benefits & Challenges for Society*
*CO₂ Utilization Technologies to Scale CO₂ Emissions Without Subsidies*
*Capture and Reuse of CO₂ & NOx from Stationary Engine Flue Gas for Algae Production*
*Deployment of Enzymatic Technology for Low-Cost CO₂ Mitigation*
*Carbon-Negative Fuels from Algae Biomass, Wastewater & CO₂*
*Sustainable Production of Green Feed for Transportation Fuels from CO₂ & Hydrogen*
*Achieving Efficient Separation and Utilization of CO₂ in the Production of Fine Chemicals*
*Development of a High Efficiency Supercritical CO₂ Hot Gas Turbo-Expander & Low Cost Heat Exchangers*

If you are interested in exploring positive solutions to some of the key environmental and energy-related challenges facing the world today, then this event is the one for you!
