9th Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit

Date: 18th October 2017 - 19th October 2017 Location: Reykjavík - Iceland

Following the success of its previous editions, ACI’s 9th Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit will explore the ongoing developments of turning waste CO2 into profitable, commercially viable opportunities. With insights from key industry players from pilot stage to full scale entities, the conference will address both the technical and commercial aspects of CO2 Utilisation in Europe and across the globe.

This edition of the summit will highlight the different projects in place or expected to happen in the CO2 utilisation, across the various segment (fuels, chemicals, renewables, building…).

The two days event will propose an in-depth look into these various projects, as well as challenges & opportunities but also policy & regulation, framing the industry. The participants will also have the chance to discuss how to keep the industry thriving as a whole and the potential role of CO2 utilisation in the future.


Exclusive Site Visit:

During the afternoon of Tuesday 17th October, prior to the conference, a limited number of attendees will receive the unique opportunity to visit CRI’s George Olah Renewable Methanol Plant in Svartsengi.

Spaces for the site visit are of no extra charge and are reserved on a first come, first served basis. Please confirm your interest upon registration. See below for further details.

World Cement

World Cement

Now in its 84th year, World Cement continues to be the world’s leading business and technical magazine for the cement industry.

In addition to technical articles that consider the manufacture of cement, from winning the raw materials to distribution of the final product out of the cement plant, the magazine includes regional reports that provide the latest information on the performance of the cement industry throughout the world.

In line with the changing focus of the industry, we will feature a number of articles throughout 2014 on increasing energy efficiency and reducing emissions. We are also running a series of keynote articles on topics of particular interest to the industry such as CCS and skills shortages, among other things. This is in addition to monthly technical features, covering the entire scope of cement production from quarrying to dispatch, and regional reports on countries/regions including Turkey, Iran, Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, India, Pakistan, the Middle East and North Africa, and China.

World Cement’s website, www.worldcement.com, has become established as a premier source of information for the industry. News and comment are freely available to all and subscribers are able to download each monthly issue up to 2 weeks before receipt of the hard copy. For more information visit www.worldcement.com.


The Spanish CO2 Technology Platform (PTECO2) is an initiative developed by Spain’s private sector, research centres and universities. It is partly funded by the Ministry of Finance and Competitiveness (MINECO) and contains representatives of that ministry and also of the Ministries of Industry, Energy and Tourism (MINETUR) and Agriculture, Food and the Environment (MAGRAMA).

PTECO2’s chief goal is to create a favourable environment for investment in R&D and innovation, foster the creation of an innovative business fabric and increase technological capacity in processes for efficiency improvement and carbon capture, utilization and storage, CCUS, and to support the rolling out of these technologies in industry.

  • Awards and competitions
  • organisations which are interested in the exchange of scientists, students, etc.



The Carbon & Climate Law Review strikes a balance between the interests of practitioners, especially those engaged in the rapidly evolving carbon market, and a more doctrinal focus, alternating legal policy recommendations with timely articles on legal aspects of carbon trading and other dimensions of greenhouse gas regulation. Topics include emission trading, clean development mechanism, climate change, climate regulatory & policy framework, carbon dioxide capture & storage (CCS), greenhouse gases, reducing emissions from deforestation & degradation (REDD).
