GreenCarbon 2020 International Symposium

Home / Events / GreenCarbon 2020 International Symposium

We are inviting you for the GreenCarbon 2020 International Symposium, which will be held from 22–25th September at the Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain.

The primary aim of GreenCarbon 2020 is to increase dissemination of the research activities conducted within the GreenCarbon European Training Network (project H2020-MSCA-ITN-721991). For this purpose, the fourteen early-stage researchers involved in the GreenCarbon project will present the most important findings from their PhD projects. The research programme of the network covers all aspects from precursors (the nature of biomass) to processing (thermochemical conversion, porosity development, chemical functionalization) and application (e.g., CO2 capture, heterogeneous catalysis and chemicals from biomass) enabling a unique design of engineered sustainable biomass-derived carbon materials.

GreenCarbon 2020 is also open for the global research community as well as policy makers and representatives from the industrial sector. The event will include the participation of renowned keynote speakers. Contributions in the form of oral presentations and posters are greatly appreciated and welcomed. The topics covered during the symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • Production and characterization of biomass-derived carbons through thermochemical processes.
  • Synthesis of biomass-derived porous carbons (and composites) and their application in adsorption, catalysis and electrochemical energy storage.
  • Biomass-derived carbons for soil conditioning (biochar) and related environmental benefits.
  • Other emerging applications of biomass-derived carbons (e.g., in direct carbon fuel cells, as reductants in metallurgical industry, in cementitious composites, etc.).

There will be no parallel sessions to allow all participants to be exposed and contribute to all presentations. Networking time will be encouraged through social events, including the gala dinner. Registration fees are reasonably low with special rates for students.

Mark your calendars now and stay tuned for more information.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Zaragoza!
