+++ Carbon4PUR and CO2Exide invite you to discuss a potential circular value chain concept for polyurethanes +++ Focussing on CO2 as a raw material for sustainable chemistry +++ Dialogue between civil society, science, politics and industry +++ Covestro board member announced as guest +++


Dear Follower,

the days when CO2 was just a waste product are long gone. State-of-the-art CCU technology is paving the way to a sustainable, oil-free future. Our aim is to reuse carbon from CO and CO2 as a raw material for sustainable epoxides and polyurethanes. New approaches are dealing with the challenges and opportunities of turning our linear throw-away society into a circular economy.

These are the core elements of the projects CO2Exide, Carbon4PUR and PUReSmart, which have already achieved significant results.

The joint symposium "Sustainable Plastics - Joining CCU, Circular Economy and Power-to-X for better Polymers" offers the opportunity for detailes insights into these research projects.

Subsequent round table discussions will focus on the necessary regulations, social acceptance and green electricity as preconditions and enablers for carbon-neutral chemistry.

The symposium will end with a panel discussion with Sucheta Govil (CCO Covestro), Walter Leitner (Professor RWTH Aachen), Eric de Coninck (LIS Project Manager ArcelorMittal) and Maximilian Fleischer (Chief Key Expert Siemens Energy).

We warmly invite you to participate in this multifaceted symposium and the wide-ranging discussions.

  • Date: Monday, April 27th 2020, 10.00 a.m. - 4.30 p.m.
  • Location: SuperC conference room of the RWTH Aachen University, Templergraben 57, 52062 Aachen (Germany)
