Carbon2Value Final Symposium

Interested to learn how the by-products of steelmaking can be transformed into useful chemicals such as synthetic naphtha or bioethanol? Join the Carbon2Value symposium on the 22nd of June, 13-17 CEST

The world is committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change, while increasing welfare globally. By transforming towards a circular carbon economy, we can ensure all three. 

Transition towards carbon neutrality 

The European project Carbon2Value usefully repurposes the by-products of steelmaking that would be emitted otherwise. Through carbon capture and utilization, we will transition towards carbon neutrality by 2050, together. 

Final symposium 

In the final symposium on June 22 we will finalize the 5-year Carbon2Value project and discuss the outcomes of pilot studies carried out by ArcelorMittal, DOW Chemicals and LanzaTech. Key representatives will describe how their collaboration has led to two novel processing routes, which include steel gas separation technologies and carbon valorisation towards synthetic naphtha or bioethanol. Besides the techno-economic outcomes, the results of environmental impact analyses are shared as well.
