Energy and Material Flows in Sustainable Petrochemistry – Opportunities and Implications

The event aims to bring together experts from industry and academia. It traditionally features high participation from industry, providing a good platform for networking. The conference will cover scientific and technological issues, e.g., catalysis and other enabling petrochemical technologies, addressing the special challenges of the energy transition and improved sustainability. 

Selected Topics

  • Utilization of unconventional feedstocks (waste streams, bio-derived raw materials) in petrochemical processes
  • Energy efficiency and product-carbon-footprint of processes and materials
  • Electrification of petrochemical processes
  • Design and evaluation of sustainable processes & separations
  • AI and data science in process design and optimization
  • Cross-industry value chains (e.g., steel, cement, refineries, …)
