Beschreibung des Events
Learn how the chemical industry can achieve carbon neutrality with speakers from VCI, CLIB, ETH Zurich and Carbon Minds.

Zu diesem Event

We will first discuss new technologies for the integration of renewable carbon feedstock and renewable energy into chemical production chains. Speakers will cover topics such as Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU), recycling, bio-based production and electrification.

Beyond new technologies, we will introduce a new modelling approach and database for company-specific carbon footprinting. We will discuss the role of this data system for sustainable supply chain management.

Presentations will be followed by a live Q+A with the speakers.
