C1 Value Academy Programme opening seminar
Atmospheric carbon compounds can be captured, stored and utilised in the production of chemical products and materials, for example. C1 compounds (CO2, CO, CH4, CH3OH) are potential sources of raw material for the production of fuels, materials and chemicals. The goal is to find solutions that enable CO2 and CH4 emissions, for example, to be utilised in industrial manufacturing in accordance with the principles of green chemistry.
Arranged by the C1 Value Academy Programme, the seminar was aimed at researchers in both academia and industry and at all those interested in C1 research.
Please contact Programme Manager Saila Seppo by email (firstname.lastname(at)aka.fi) to obtain material presented in the seminar.
