CO2 Reuse Summit

Location: Brussels, Belgium

The world is constantly looking for pathways to sustainable future. One of the biggest issues are increasing CO2 emissions, which are causing the global warming. Scientists from around the globe developed several technologies enabling us to turn carbon dioxide into usefull products like fuels, building materials, chemicals or polymers. However CO2 utilization projects still require further research, industry collaboration, funding or policy changes in order to become feasible and well established on the market.
CO2 Reuse Summit aims to explore solutions for carbon dioxide utilization. Science made us realise, we can treat CO2 as a feedstock, not waste. It became useful and valuable for various industries. The topics covered create a pathway to a sustainable future with lower carbon emissions. 

A limited number of participants will also have the chance to visit the LEILAC pilot plant in Lixhe on 26 May - there is no charge, but places are limited.
