For the first time at an ICCDU flash presentations by students and early career researchers were included highlighting their contribution to the field of CO2 Utilisation.


    The following presentations were given within the CyclicCO2R framework:

    Richard Heyn of SINTEF: Mechanistic studies into the formation of propylene carbonate from propylene glycol and CO2
    Paul Reiss of University of York: Immobilisation of a Bimetallic Aluminium-Salen Complex onto a Structured Silica Support and its Influence on Cyclic Carbonate Synthesis
    Xiao Wu of University of York: Synthesis of Cyclic Carbonates Catalysed by Chromium and Aluminium(Salphen) Complexes
    Willy Offermans of RWTH Aachen University: On the Mechanism of the Cycloaddition of Carbon Dioxide and Epoxides

    Flash presentations and posters were presented by:

    Daniela Trambitas of Feyecon: Production of Cyclic Carbonates via Reaction of CO2 and Renewable Feedstocks
    Karolin Schenk of RWTH Aachen University:  Direct Synthesis of Glycerol Carbonate from Glycerol and Carbon Dioxide by Brønstedt Base Catalysis

    Carbon Dioxide Utilisation – Faraday Discussion

    Sheffield, U.K.

    September 7 – 9, 2015


    The Faraday Division have been organising high impact Faraday Discussions in rapidly developing areas of physical chemistry and its interfaces with other scientific disciplines for over 100 years.

    Faraday Discussions have a special format where research papers written by the speakers are distributed to all participants before the meeting, and most of the meeting is devoted to discussing the papers. Everyone contributes to the discussion – including presenting their own relevant research. The research papers and a record of the discussion are published in the journal Faraday Discussions.

    ICCDU 2015

    International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization


    July 5 – 9, 2015


    In 2015, the conference will focus on carbon dioxide conversion and utilization for the production of chemicals, fuels and materials for sustainable development. The goal of the conference is to

    facilitate the advances in carbon dioxide research and bring together the academic, government and industrial communities for the exchange of ideas, concepts, and innovations.

    30th Edition of ChemSpec Europe (Exhibition)

    Cologne, Germany

    June 24 – 25, 2015


    Over the past 30 years, Chemspec Europe has undergone significant development and gained popularity within the industry due to its evolution from a simple trade show to a networking event. This transformation has been shaped by input from exhibitors and visitors to Chemspec Europe. Having taken on board feedback from members across the whole industry, Chemspec Europe has developed key partnerships with the European Fine Chemicals Group (EFCG),
    Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Scientific Update and REACHReady to ensure the delivery of top-class content in free-to attend seminars and workshops.


    The ensuing result has seen Chemspec Europe developing into a multi-faceted networking event dedicated to the fine, custom and speciality chemicals industry, which will open its doors in 2015 in Cologne, Germany, celebrating the 30th edition of the show.

    ICGC 2015: XIII International Conference on Green Chemistry

    San Francisco, CA, U.S.A.

    June 7 – 8, 2015


    The ICGC 2015: XIII International Conference on Green Chemistry aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of Green Chemistry. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Green Chemistry.

    3rd International Symposium on Green Chemistry

    La Rochelle, France

    May 3 – 7, 2015


    For this third edition, we aim at widening the scope of the symposium to other fields of green chemistry. In particular, ISGC-2015 will cover nine general topics related to 1. biomass conversion, 2. clean hydrogen production, 3. alternative solvents, 4. waste, 5. polymers and materials, 6. atom-economy synthesis, 7. eco-technology, 8. predictive methods and 9. environmental and ethical assessments. Each topic will be introduced by a plenary lecture delivered by an eminent scientist of the field. Apart from the lectures, ISGC-2015 will be organized around different parallel sessions (including invited keynotes and oral communications), posters, a round table and an exhibition area.


    On the continuation of ISGC-2, a key objective of this third edition is to provide an environment that facilitates widespread interdisciplinary communication. To this end, ISGC-2015 should offer to public and private scientists an ideal platform for sharing fundamental knowledge with industrial research and development.

    3rd Conference on Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Chemistry and Polymers

    Essen, Germany

    December 2 – 3, 2014


    For the 3rd year in a row, the nova-Institute will organize the conference “CO2 as chemical feedstock – a challenge for sustainable chemistry” on 2 – 3 December 2014 in the “Haus der Technik” in Essen, Germany. Over the last few years, the rise of this topic has 
developed from several research projects 
and industrial applications to become more and more dynamic, especially in 
the fields of solar fuels (power-to-fuel, 
power-to-gas) – but also in CO2-based chemicals and polymers. Several players are very active and will showcase some enhanced and also new applications using carbon dioxide as feedstock. The conference will be the largest event on Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in 2014.
