The event brings together stakeholders from academia, industry, and politics. It aims to provide a forum for sharing exciting scientific discoveries and discussing the way forward into a decarbonized future.
The conference is hosted by 112CO2 and SUN2CHEM, two international projects with participation of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), funded through the EU’s Horizon 2020 initiative. The 112CO2 consortium aims to develop a low-temperature methane decomposition technology, allowing the production of carbon oxides-free hydrogen from natural gas, biogas, and synthetic methane. The SUN2CHEM project focuses on solutions for the efficient solar-driven reduction of CO2, generating energy-rich, high-value chemicals. Both projects are united by a vision for a sustainable future, in which climate protection and human development are no longer juxtaposed.
