Chem4Energy Annual Conference

29 March 2023 17:00 - 2 April 2023 11:00, Potchefstroom, South Africa

The Chem4Energy annual conference has grown out of two collaborative UK-Africa consortium programmes and 2023 will see the third in this series of meetings, which focus in particular on:
*Highlighting the synergy between experiment and computation
*Offering opportunities for early career researchers to disseminate their work in oral and poster presentations - often their first conference talk!
*Allowing plenty of opportunity for discussion of the research

The Chem4Energy conferences aim to bring together local academic and industrial researchers and developers from Southern Africa with colleagues from Europe, the USA and further afield, to discuss the latest developments in clean energy materials and processes, build new collaborations, and influence and support future directions in the field of sustainable energy research.  

Although contributions in all areas within the Chem4Energy remit are welcome, particular themes of the 2023 meeting include:
*Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis for clean energy; 
*CO2 capture and utilisation;
*Nanoparticles and surface processes; 
*Materials for solar energy devices;
*High-performance computing in energy research.

The 2023 Chem4Energy conference will be hosted by the Focus Area for Chemical Resource Beneficiation at North-West University, South Africa. 
The conference will be hosted at the NWU Sports Village in Potchefstroom. With great food, comfortable accommodation, friendly service and access to the Fanie Du Toit grounds on the banks of the Mooirivier, the NWU Sport Village is a one stop conference facility at walking distance from the NWU Potchefstroom Campus.
