CO2Reuse Summit in Berlin
On May 8-9, 2019
On May 8-9, 2019, Philippe Fonta was invited to play a key role in the latest CO2Reuse Summit in Berlin. Convening numerous stakeholders from différent industries and associations worldwide, CO2 Reuse Summit aimed at exploring solutions for carbon dioxide utilization. As science now demonstrates, CO2 can be treated as a feedstock, rather than a waste, and get a value for various industries that need and will still need carbon in the future.
Philippe delivered one of the keynote introductory speeches, advocating for the development of a New International Carbon Economy (NICE) through which carbon would be sourced from captured CO2 and progressively no longer from fossil fuels…
