First nova Session on “Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU)” kicks off an unusual new series of events

The first “nova Session on technology of the future: Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU)” takes place on 4 May 2016, Airport Cologne/Bonn (Germany)

Deutsche Version:

If you are working in an innovation driven field, you have to keep up with the latest developments, in research and technology as well as on the market. This is especially true for the future-oriented CO2-based economy, where a wide range of applications and new technologies turn up on the market every day.

Interested experts from industry, associations, policy and civil society are now invited to get up-to-date and thoroughly discuss the latest developments in CO2 utilization. The nova Sessions are a new take on the standard practice of your every-day workshop and provide room for high-level exchanges among experts. Participants will have the chance to actively shape content and form of the event and contribute short presentations on their work and the topics they are most interested in.

“At the moment, there is no space for experts to really get together and exchange knowledge, ask questions and meet people from the same and other sectors of the economy – be it from R&D or manufacturing – who might have different views and perspectives on the topics”, states Michael Carus. The Managing Director of nova-Institute and Achim Raschka, Head of nova-Institute’s Department of Technology & Markets, will moderate the discussion and bring in their expertise.

Registration for the first “nova Session on technology of the future: Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU)”, 4 May 2016, is now open at
The number of participants is limited to 20.

With nova Sessions, nova-Institute offers a new, interactive and informative series of events around topical issues of the bio- and CO2-based economy. You are invited to get involved! Interested experts can currently choose between nova Sessions on different topics:

  • Biomass supply and demand scenarios by 2050
  • Market data for bio-based polymers and biocomposites
  • New quantification systems: Efficiency of biomass use in materials (BUE) and the Biomass Utilization Factor (BUF) for cascading use and co-production
  • Technology of the future – Carbon Capture and Utilization
  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for bio-based products
  • Certification and labelling of bio-based feedstocks and products
