International Workshop: 25th-26th January 2018

Despite the global efforts in reducing CO2 emissions after Kyoto’s Protocol and recently reconsidered in the Paris’ Agreement, we are still have far to go to meet the emissions levels requirements.  This trend is especially dramatic in Latin American countries, which have shown the smallest rate of CO2 emissions reduction. Consequently, we have gathered a consortium of world class experts in CO2 capture and utilization technologies from Latin America, UK and EU to set a platform for knowledge exchange aiming to provide sustainable solutions to the CO2 challenge.

In this scenario, the Department of Chemical & Process Engineering at the University of Surrey has the pleasure to announce the international workshop – “Engineering Solutions for CO2 conversion”. The workshop will take place on the 25-26th January 2018 at the University of Surrey as one of the core activities of the EPSRC Global Challenge Research Fund project – Catalytic Solutions to mitigate Global Warming in Latin America.

 The organisers would like to invite colleges from academia and industry working in CO2 capture/conversion technologies to join the workshop. The event is a FREE REGISTRATION venue with a limited number of participants so early registration is advised. PhD students are encouraged to submit poster contributions.
