17th Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit 2021

Following the success of its previous editions, ACI’s 17th Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit will take place in Brussels on the 27th & 28th October 2021.

17th Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit 2021

During this new European edition of the event, the conference will explore the on-going & future CO2 utilisation projects, the importance of creating partnership through industrial clusters, best practices of LCAs, as well as the policy & regulations that can help strengthen the industry and the latest technology developments.

The two day event will also focus on the diverse uses of CO2 – chemicals, e-fuels, mineralisation and other market potential, through case studies. The conference participants will be able to take advantage of the different panel discussions and Q&A to gain a deeper understanding of the projects presented and interact both with the speakers and their fellow attendees.

Join us in Brussels this October for a highly interactive & informative conference, whilst enjoying the networking opportunities with your peers.

Have a look at the detailed agenda to get further details on this year’s topics & speakers.
