The 12th International Freiberg Conference on Circular Carbon Technologies will take place from 23–26 September 2024 in Shanghai, China. 

The 12th International Freiberg Conference on Circular Carbon Technologies (12th IFC) is organized by the Institute of Energy Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering (IEC) at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg (Germany) with its co-organizers the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST, China), Synfuels China Technology Co., Ltd (China) and the Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICC CAS, China). It focuses on the opportunities and challenges as well as innovations and developments in circular carbon technologies to pave the way towards a resource efficient, circular and climate neutral economy via the recirculation of carbon-containing waste as secondary raw materials for production. Additionally, latest developments in the sustainability transformation in Asia via the low emission utilization of primary carbon feedstocks and integration of biogenic raw materials will also be highlighted.

We invite you to join us at this event and contribute to an interactive discussion at the nexus of science, technology, politics and society. Researchers, specialists, practitioners and diverse stakeholders will engage in intensive exchanges about the latest R&D developments as well as political/regulatory framework conditions for the transition towards a circular and low carbon economy. Furthermore, technology developers and plant operators will also share insights into their current/planned projects as well as operational experiences along the entire feedstock-to-products value chain.

In addition to a stimulating scientific program, the conference will also include the opportunity to participate in exciting technical tours to world-scale chemical production facilities in China, as well as interesting networking events designed to facilitate networking and interaction between conference participants.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 12th International Freiberg Conference in September 2024 in Shanghai China!
