The primary aim of GreenCarbon2020 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.
GreenCarbon 2020 is also open for the global research community as well as policy makers and representatives from the industrial sector. The event also includes the participation of renowned keynote speakers. 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.).
Selected abstracts have been invited to submit a journal paper to a special issue in the MDPI’s Sustainability journal (ISSN 2071-1050).
The detailed instructions for both speakers and attendees will be available very soon.
GreenCarbon2020 has been possible thanks to your participation.
