Carbon Dioxide Utilisation: Faraday Discussion

7 - 9 April 2021, Online, United Kingdom


Phishing Warning
We are aware that some speakers and delegates have been approached by companies claiming to operate on behalf of the Royal Society of Chemistry to book their travel and accommodation for our conferences. Please note that whilst we do sometimes work with accommodation providers in order to facilitate hotel bookings, they would never approach you in the first instance. Details of accommodation providers that we are working with are in the ‘accommodation’ section of this webpage. If you are unsure about an e-mail / phone call you receive, please contact us and do not provide any credit card details or personal information.
Covid-19
We understand that there is continuing uncertainty regarding the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our scheduled events. We are keeping our programme under review and as appropriate we will actively explore alternatives, such as transitioning to a virtual conference, if required. We fully understand that it is difficult for delegates to make travel and conference plans at this time, however we encourage delegates to continue to submit their abstracts and to register in confidence that the conference will go ahead, and we are happy to refund registration fees at a later date if the conference plans change. We will contact all registered delegates as soon as possible with any changes to planned events, and the latest information on the conference schedule, registration details and any programme changes will be announced on these web pages. If you have any questions please contact us. We remain grateful for your support.
Introduction

The Royal Society of Chemistry are pleased to announce that this event will be moving online. This web page will be updated over the coming weeks with more details. If you have any questions please contact us at events@rsc.org


Welcome

Join us online in April 2021 for this addition to our Faraday Discussion series. For over 100 years and 300 meetings, Faraday Discussions have been the forefront of physical chemistry. Many of these Discussions have become landmark meetings in their field.
 
We invite you to join us to discuss the topic of carbon dioxide utilisation and make your contribution to this cutting-edge dialogue alongside leaders in this field.
 
This meeting is for established scientists, post-graduate students and industrial researchers interested in carbon dioxide utilisation. Given the rapid expansion of global research into carbon dioxide utilisation, the unique format of the Faraday Discussions will allow for in-depth discussions and opportunities to establish new collaborations.

Attendance

The Royal Society of Chemistry is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you would like to discuss accessibility, please contact us to discuss your requirements so that we can enable your attendance.

Format

Faraday Discussions remain amongst the only conferences to distribute the speakers’ research papers in advance, allowing the majority of each meeting to be devoted to discussion in which all delegates can participate.  Following each meeting a written record of the discussion is published alongside the papers in the Faraday Discussions journal.

Themes

Since the Faraday Discussion on carbon dioxide utilisation was held in 2015, there has been a rapid rise in research output together with commercialisation.

Our 2021 Discussion will focus on the following four themes:
 
Thermal catalytic conversion
In this session we will discuss using cascade processes to maximise efficiency and conversion, the development of systems that are reactive under low CO2 concentrations, whether we can produce robust and active catalysts for use in impure gas streams using Earth abundant and low-cost metals, and whether amine capture can be used to produce a product with real value.

Accelerated mineralisation
This session will discuss the use of gaseous and solid waste streams without pre-purification, chemical strategies to extract valuable and/or toxic metals from industrial waste before it is carbonated to give stable inorganics, the chemical and physical processes for waste carbonation versus virgin minerals, and methods and kinetics for coal carbonation.

Life Cycle and upscaling
In this session, we will discuss scaling systems to real application quantities, reactor design and separation processes. We will also consider the development of robust life cycle analyses on reactions and processes and setting boundaries for these.
 
Emerging technologies

This session will include, but is not limited to, the plasmolytic, photo- & electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide, and battery technologies. We will discuss the means of increasing efficiency while maintaining conversion.
 
Speakers
Abstract Submission

Oral Abstracts and Research Papers

A full research paper containing new unpublished results always accompanies oral presentations at Faraday Discussions. Submit an oral/paper abstract by 3 August 2020 if you wish to be considered for an oral presentation and associated published paper. The oral/paper abstract should outline current research in progress. Authors of the selected abstracts must then submit a full research paper with a significant amount of new, unpublished work by 16 November 2020.

The research papers are reviewed upon submission and are sent to all delegates 4 weeks before the meeting so they can be read in advance. At the meeting the presenting author is allowed five minutes to highlight the main points of their paper, and the rest of the time is for discussion. The discussion is recorded and will be published alongside the research paper in the Faraday Discussion Volume.  

Poster Abstracts 

Submit your poster abstract by 25 January 2021. Posters are displayed throughout the meeting and a poster session is held on the first evening. The Faraday Division Poster Prize will be awarded to the best poster presented by a student at the conference.

Additional Information

Authors will be notified of the outcome of the review process within about 6 weeks of the submission deadline. The abstracts should be no longer than one A4 page in portrait layout. Please ensure you provide the details of the presenting author and indicate whether you are submitting an abstract for oral or poster presentation.
