The European Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit

Date: 25th October 2023 - 26th October 2023 Location: Hamburg - Germany

With ever increasing focus on sustainability and decarbonisation, many industries are looking for ways to use CO2 to both remove harmful emissions and find value from this perceived “waste” material. This event will focus on new CO2 utilisation developments and technologies in the oil and gas, chemicals, energy, mineralisation and E-Fuels industries, as well as other-end markets. The conference will also highlight international legislation; updates and requirements of the industry, as well as an overview of the market since the 2015 Paris agreement.

Following the success of its previous editions, ACI’s The European Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit will take place in Hamburg on the 25th & 26th October 2023.

This summit will attract attendees from Energy companies investing in R&D, Oil, gas and chemical companies with Alternative energy departments, Governments looking for investable R&D in the energy sector, Biofuel companies, Power to gas/liquids fuels, Industrial Chemical sector, Start-up technology companies, Chemical product manufacturers, Fuel & Biofuel technology companies, Venture capital firms, Clean energy technology companies, Oil and gas services companies, Gases and engineering companies, Petrochemical consulting companies and more.

The mission of CO2 Value Europe is to promote the development and market deployment of sustainable industrial solutions that convert CO2 into valuable products, in order to contribute to the net reduction of global CO2 emissions and to the diversification of the feedstock base away from fossil oil and gas. Our vision is a future where CCU has become an integral part of a low carbon economy.

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, Industry and Competitiveness (MEIC) and contains representatives of that ministry and also of the Ministries of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda (MINETAD) and Agriculture and Fishing, and Food and the Environment (MAPAMA).

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.

Since 2012, PTECO2 has a specific working group focus in “CO2 uses” whose members are trying to boost the uses and transformation of CO2 in Spain.

The Institute for International Co-operation (INICOP) is a non-profit organisation.

About Fortum Recycling & Waste 

Fortum Recycling & Waste is rethinking recycling and leading the way toward a material revolution. Fortum believes that next to traditional material streams, also carbon belongs in circulation. This means that emissions are turned into new raw materials​. To do this at scale, we need to rethink CO2 in recycling. Fortum’s solution: Carbon2x.

Carbon2x is a concept to capture the CO2 emissions from waste incineration and utilize the emissions as raw materials to produce new high-quality materials, like CO2-based plastics. With the Carbon2x concept, the climate impact of waste incineration would significantly reduce and contribute to improving the recycling rate of plastic packaging compared to the current level by 2030.

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
