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.

Econic Technologies is a highly innovative, fast growing catalyst technology company working with the plastics industry. We develop and commercialise novel catalyst technologies that enable our customers to build waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into bespoke polyols, which can be used to create polyurethanes and other polymers with unique high performance characteristics. Our technologies offer distinct economic benefits that can be deployed cost-effectively alongside existing assets while contributing to the clean tech agenda; manufacturers can replace up to 40% of their petrochemical feedstocks with low-cost captured CO2. The new generation catalysts allow manufacturers to closely tune the amount of CO2 contained within the polyol, which means they can create a flexible array of high performance benefits for myriad applications according to demand.
Econic Technologies started operations in 2011 based on a foundation catalyst technology that was developed at Imperial College London, one of the top research universities in Europe. Initial investors, Imperial Innovations and Norner Verdandi, supported the development of this technology for commercial applications. Continuing confidence in the huge potential for these catalysts has resulted in further investments from Jetstream Capital, Touchstone innovations and Woodford Investment Management and the business has now expanded into new premises at Alderley Park, Cheshire, UK. The move enables further expansion and progress as customers and partners capitalise on the economic, product flexibility and environmental benefits of the technologies.
The world leader in gases, technologies and services for Industry and Health is present in 80 countries with approximately 65,000 employees and serves more than 3 million customers and patients. Air Liquide Engineering & Construction builds the Group’s production units (mainly air gas separation and hydrogen production units) and also supplies external customers with its portfolio of technologies. Its industrial gas, energy conversion and gas purification solutions enable customers to optimize the use of natural resources and covers the entire project life cycle: license engineering services, proprietary equipment, high-end engineering and design capabilities, as well as project management and execution services.
Electrochaea has developed a commercially viable and disruptive solution for utility-scale energy storage, grid balancing, and carbon reuse.
Our proprietary process converts low-cost and stranded electricity and carbon dioxide into pipeline-grade renewable gas for direct injection into the existing natural gas grid, a conversion process known as “power-to-gas”.
The core of our power-to-gas system is a selectively evolved microorganism – a methanogenic archaea – that excels through unprecedented catalytic ability and industrial robustness.
The technical advantages of this biocatalyst enable our patented BioCat methanation technology to operate at lower capital and operating costs and with greater flexibility than conventional thermochemical methanation processes.
Electrochaea GmbH is a dynamic early stage company with headquarters, engineering and development teams in Munich, Germany, and a commercial scale demonstration facility in our Danish subsidiary. Plants of more than one gigawatt of capacity are targeted by 2025. 20 empolyees work for Electrochaea. CEO is Mich Hein.

Institute for Micro Process Engineering (IMVT, http://www.imvt.kit.edu)
With more than 20 years of experience in the development and application of advanced microstructured devices such as heat exchangers, mixers, reactors, separators and multifunctional devices fulfilling, the Institute of Micro Process Engineering at KIT is one of the leading academic research institutions in the field of micro process engineering worldwide. An international team of more than 60 employees specialized in various disciplines focuses on the construction and fabrication of microstructured devices, on fundamental studies of transport processes and chemical reactions in microstructures, and on the use of prototypes in selected thermal and chemical processes. Apart from research projects financed from basic funds under the Helmholtz programs, projects funded by third parties are being executed in cooperation with industry and academic research institutions in Germany and abroad.
A major research focus at IMVT currently is placed on the conversion of carbon dioxide with hydrogen derived from electrolysis driven by renewable electricity into low-emission fuels and chemical energy carriers (power-to-molecules). Very compact, modular and highly efficient reactor technologies are being developed for converting synthesis gases into fuels and chemicals from lab-scale up to sizeable prototype units for testing in industrial environments. Process simplification and heat integration within the whole power-to-X conversion chain are being investigated mainly with a view of enabling decentralized applications, where compactness as well as a wide dynamic operation range are important.
Recently, the company INERATEC (http://www.ineratec.com) has been established as a spin-off of IMVT to commercialize the institute’s microstructured reactor technology in the field of gas-to-liquid and power-to-X conversion.
