With climate change still being a very real issue, change needs to come fast. One of the changes that can be made, is to ensure the avoidance of CO2 emissions, which can and is now being done using Carbon Dioxide Capture, Storage and Utilization technologies.
ACI’s 16th Carbon Dioxide Utilization Summit will follow on from our successful 13th edition which took place in Calgary focusing on the re-use of greenhouse gas CO2 and converting this into profitable sustainable and commercial materials. It will be taking place in Canada on the 16th & 17th of September 2020.
The two day event will bring together senior experts from various CO2 emitting industries discussing sustainable, technological and commercial aspects of CO2 Utilization in Canada and across the globe. With technology comparisons focusing on economic, environmental, and social indicators, our panel of speakers will highlight knowledgeable insights into commercial application and development of technology and products.
Last year the focus was on the path to commercialization of CO2 capture, utilization and storage technologies. This year there will still be focuses on this, as it is important for start-ups to know. However, there will also be more case studies on already commercialized and successful utilization technologies and the uses for them.
