DG GROW in cooperation with EASME and ECRN cordially invite you to the "Final Conference of the European Sustainable Chemicals Support Service Phase II - Exploring how capturing and re-using currently emitted industrial gases could be stimulated through industrial symbiosis" together with Ecofys and the University of Sheffield.

The conference aims to stimulate the re-use of gases, such as CO2, CO, H2, SOx and NOx by the industry. To do so, the event will present the outcomes of the project, followed by presentations and panel discussion of the key policy lessons as learnt by the selected Model Demonsrator Regions - Antwerp (Belgium), Limburg (the Netherlands), Lodz (Poland) and Varna (Bulgaria). A self-assessment tool, developed within the project, will also be presented and you can learn how to apply this tool to your region.

During the conference:

  • The possibilities and potential for re-using industrial gases will be presented;

  • Presenters with appealing opportunities for and experiences with re-using emitted gases will present their approach to stimulate this potential;

  • You will be invited to share your view and learn from each other in an interactive way;

  • Representatives from various key DG’s of the European Commission will reflect on the way the EU can support and stimulate presented regional efforts.

Please find the draft agenda attached herewith and register through the eventbrite page until 26 September.
