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

The days when CO2 was just a waste product of industry 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, in which ultimately all plastics are recycled.

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 detailed insights into the research projects.

Subsequent roundtable 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, in which SuchetaGovil (CCO Covestro), Professor Walter Leitner (RWTH Aachen) and Eric de Coninck (CTO ArcelorMittal) will participate amongst others.

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