Carbon is an inherent constituent of many products and intermediates in the chemical industry and fuel for transport applications. Today, this carbon is largely taken from fossil feedstock, such as oil and natural gas. In the context of the Energy Transition and emission targets of greenhouse gases, the use of CO2 as a source of carbon is pivotal to the defossilization of the chemical industry and transport sector.
In this year's Swiss Electrochemistry Symposium, which will be held on site in Aarau, Switzerland, we focus on electrochemical routes to produce value added products from CO2. Seven invited speakers will cover the aspects of CO2 electroreduction, catalysis and process engineering.
We look forward to welcoming you in Aarau to the 38th Swiss Electrochemistry Symposium on May 11, 2022, for inspiring discussions, a fruitful exchange of ideas and a stimulating get-together.
