Kyoto-Alberta, Canada Joint Seminar 3rd Workshop on Material & Energy Conversion from Carbon Dioxide ~ Power to Fuel Technology innovation toward the sustainable development of the world ~
This matter has ended

【About the Joint Seminar】

20151002161328005_samThis Joint Seminar organizes three lectures and discussions for realizing Power to Fuel technology which synthesizes fuel from CO2 and water. In the seminar we collaborate with Alberta, Canada which has advanced technologies regarding the utilization of CO2 flue gas.

The Power to Fuel technology has been being demonstrated recently in Europe and North America. In this seminar, we invite three prestigious lecturers both in Japan and Canada and discuss cutting-edge technologies, marketing and practical challenges regarding (1) CO2 separation and collection, (2) CO/H2 gas production by the electrolysis of CO2 and water and (3) Liquid fuel production by Fischer-Tropsch process, which are inevitable for realizing Power to Fuel

*Simultaneous interpretation (English/Japanese) will be provided for all of the lectures
