CO2 smart Use Congres - CO2 as a valuable feedstock

We want to position CO2 as the raw material of the future, helping the transition from a CO2-emitting to a CO2-absorbing industry. The Netherlands offers the perfect platform for these efforts. With two world class harbours, the largest (petro)chemical cluster in the world and an overall well developed economic ecosystem this will be the place to work on new value chains around the much discussed substance. To bring us a step closer to realising this ambition we partnered up with Gemeente Rotterdam, TKI Energie en Industrie and TKI Nieuwgas to organise a congress. This congress will feature speakers from i.a. Shell, Avantium, Linde and many more.

The programme

The programme is divided into three parts, beginning with CCU from lab to pilot where relevant scientists share the newest advancements. The second theme is CCU from pilot to demo, bringing you inspiring stories from successful, international start-ups like Climeworks and SkyNRG. A short round of challenges stumbled upon by entrepreneurs will form an informative yet energetic intermezzo. After that the third theme CCU, it’s commercial! will feature mature propositions that are ripe for investment. The day will be concluded with an energizing call for action from the horticulture sector.
