Electrochemical Conversion of CO2 to Green Fuels and Products Conference
NSERC CREATE ME2
(Materials for Electrochemical Energy Solutions)
December 9, 2021
08:30 – 15:00 pm MST
We are pleased to invite you to join our next CREATE ME2 conference and share our thoughts and exchange ideas, particularly on the development of electrochemical CO2 conversion technologies to deliver low-carbon energy, explore current and future research directions, and better understand Electrochemical Conversion of CO2 to Green Fuels and Products.
This conference will focus on CO2 emissions, mitigation efforts, and opportunities for electrochemical conversion, from fundamentals to applications. It will explain the steps that have led to improved usage of CO2 for energy storage and environmental technologies, as well as CO2 conversion and utilization. It will also explore the differences between low and high temperature CO2 reduction options (CO2RR), specifically CO2RR at low temperature to produce a range of HC products, COR2RR to CO and syngas at high temperatures, and life cycle assessment of CO2RR. The workshop will highlight the current status and new discoveries in the following areas:
• Current status of CO2 emissions reductions and mitigation efforts in Canada
• CO2 conversion and utilization options in relation to energy storage
• Novel catalysts for CO2RR and new directions in MEA testing
• High temperature CO2 conversion in solid oxide cells
• Challenges going forward
This conference will also include a panel discussion to discuss relevant topics, such as barriers to CO2RR, sources of CO2 in relation to impurities and concentrations, CO2RR and intermittency of renewables, comparisons between electrochemical energy storage through electrolysis of CO2, H2 production and batteries, as well as scale-up and commercialization challenges.
