2nd Carbon Dioxide Conversion Catalysis Conference

23 July 2020 14:00 - 26 July 2020 11:00, Lisbon, Portugal



The second Carbon Dioxide Conversion Catalysis (CDCC-2) will gather academic and industrial experts focusing on the catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide into value-added products. The conference will feature several relevant topics dealing with either heterogeneous, homogeneous or hybrid forms of catalytic solutions for the production of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, polymers and energy vectors.

The topical areas of the conference include new and improved synthesis of CO2-based polymers, heterocyclic synthesis, photocatalytic & electrocatalytic conversions, energy storage using CO2, new recycling strategies, new catalyst developments, biobased synthesis based on CO2, mechanistic analysis of CO2 processes and industrially relevant CO2 conversions.

The scientific sessions are set up to maximize interactions between the participants, with ample room for discussions during and around the conference, and a poster session to highlight the latest development in the area of CO2 catalysis. The main objective of the conference is to become a key reference for networking, and exploration of new ideas and collaborations in CO2 valorisation.

Target Audience

This conference will appeal to academics, industrial scientists/chemists, policy makers (EU and national ones) and sustainability platforms.

The conference will also be of interest to anyone with a focus on using renewable feedstock to produce commodity chemicals, polymers and fine-chemical products from this carbon synthon.

Educational Need

CO2 conversion catalysis is a vibrant field of science, which continues to provide new and improved ways of converting this waste into value. Since the last CDCC in 2016, many new catalytic processes have been developed, giving a clear incentive for the CDCC-2 (2020), offering a rigorous update of the state-of-the-art catalysis developments in this area.

Learning Objectives

To provide a clear and updated description of the state-of-the-art in catalytic CO2 conversion technologies, and the potential it may have for future commercial activities
