San Diego

The perception of CO2 as a waste product is being challenged by the emergence of new industrial applications. CO2 utilization is now set to play an important role in the development of alternative fuels, ways to tackle climate change and the synthesis of high value chemicals.

Spread over two days in San Diego (AKA America’s Finest City), ACI’s Carbon Dioxide Utilization Congress will examine a wide range of CO2 applications, featuring reports on the latest technologies along with fresh perspectives on established processes such as enhanced oil recovery. There will also be a focus on the implications of CO2 utilization for the environment and the energy sector as a whole, with speakers coming from international corporations, renowned universities and regulatory bodies.

 Key Topics
