International Workshop: Perspectives on Power-to-Liquids and Power-to-Chemicals 2018

4 – 5 June 2018, Freiberg, Germany

As a follow-up to the first Perspectives on Power-to-Liquids and Power-to-Chemicals workshop in 2016, this years edition as co-organised by Dr. Christopher Hebling (Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE) and Prof. Dr. Robert Schlögl (Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion (MPICEC)), will bring together relevant stakeholders from academia, industry and politics to discuss, advance and highlight synergies between the growing renewable power generation, H2 production and CO2 utilisation targeting at the production of energy carriers, fuels and chemicals.

A strong focus will be put on the development and application of technologies leading to products with different sectoral/industrial relevance (e.g. methanol, DME, OME, etc.). The workshop provides a platform for the latest insights on these closely intertwined topics with perspectives provided regarding scientific progress and successful market introduction. An evening event in Freiburg will provide an excellent networking opportunity, whilst a tour of the state-of-the-art facilities at the Fraunhofer ISE campus will complement the workshop and discussions. We look forward to welcoming you in Freiburg.
