Following the success of its previous editions, ACI’s 14th Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Summit will take place in Dusseldorf on the 9th & 10th October 2019.
During this new European edition of the event, the conference will explore the current state of the industry, including the effect of new policies and sustainability targets, whilst also exploring latest technology development, both on the electrolysis and bio-conversion sides.
This seminar will identify the mix of renewable fuel options for the Netherlands within the context of the European Renewable Energy Directive 2021-2030 (RED-II) and the draft-Dutch Climate Agreement. Two key-note presentations will deepen our comprehension of renewable fuels and conversion technologies that are relevant for the Dutch context.
The EU Sustainable Energy Week 2019 (known online as #EUSEW19) is back for its 14th edition!
Having run the Week since 2006, the Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) together with Directorate-General for Energy are pleased to invite you to learn more about EUSEW19 during an info session in Brussels on 15 November 2018. The session will introduce the new theme and offer insights to the main elements of the event as well as the application procedures for conference sessions and the EUSEW Awards.
The conference programme will address topics from biomass to bioliquids and biofuels for heat and electricity, transport and biobased products. It will cover all aspects of each value chain, from supply and logistics to conversion technologies, from industrial application of research results to impacts on the environment, from market and trade aspects to policy strategies, not least to the role of biomass as a source in integrated energy systems.
The EUBCE is supported by European and international organizations such as the European Commission, UNESCO – United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization – Natural Sciences Sector, WCRE – the World Council for Renewable Energy, EUBIA – the European Biomass Industry Association, The Central European Initiative, The Global Bioenergy Partnership and other organisations.
The Technical Programme is coordinated by European Commission, Joint Research Centre.
The deadline for the submission of papers is November 5, 2018.
After the positive feedback in 2017 the international FEV conference on “Zero CO2 Mobility” will take place again this year and become a certified climate-friendly event. The atmosfair logo certifies the compensation of the conference’s CO2 emissions through climate protection projects that have been approved by the United Nations’ CDM Executive Board.
Again, the conference will offer a platform for strategic discussion on the potential and performance of various zero CO2 emission strategies and introduce the latest developments in the fields of battery technologies, fuel cells and e-fuels.
The ART Fuels Forum members are cordially invited to join the other conference participants from the fields of research, development and politics as an important contributor to this forum of experts. You can pre-register by filling in the online registration form. Access to the official Zero CO2 Mobility Conference Program is here.

Oil prices have been fluctuating at lower levels than in the past, potentially hampering prospects for methanol both into Methanol-to-Olefins (MTO) and into fuels.
MTO has been growing at a staggering rate, with one additional MTO unit slated to start up this year. A maturing MTO market and continuing low oil prices have, however, raised questions about the economic viability of MTO facilities and what the implications are for operating rates and for methanol prices. Meanwhile, the market is bracing itself for two new world-scale methanol plants coming onstream this year – one in the US and the other in Iran. How will this influence trade flows and regional pricing differentials?
Additionally, increasingly strict environmental pollution controls in China and its aim to move toward E10 ethanol blending are producing demand uncertainty in the world’s largest methanol consumer.
How will prospects for methanol pan out in the midst of these complexities?
The 36th Annual World Methanol Conference and Workshop will outline these key issues and discuss where the opportunities are in the midst of change in a full day of content, data analysis and expert insight.
