Scientific Program

Main topics

The main goal of the Conference is to discuss, at the both global and molecular level, interdisciplinary topics relevant to the actual concepts and models of the plasma catalysis for CO2 Recycling.

Three topics will be developed:

  1. FUNDAMENTALS AND MECHANISMS OF CO2 PLASMAS INTERACTING WITH SURFACES and the physicochemical phenomena involved, including CO2 dissociation, to model these phenomena and to be able to predict the behaviour and consequences of different CO2 plasmas.
  2. ADVANCED, ACTIVE, SELECTIVE AND ROBUST CATALYTIC SYSTEMS specially formulated for plasma-catalytic coupling to optimize CO2 valorisation, and study the interaction between the excited species present in CO2 plasmas and solid catalytic surface.
  3. INNOVATIVE ROUTES FOR PLASMA-CATALYST INTERACTION, study novel reactor designs involving various types of exposure of the catalytic materials to different kinds of plasmas of diverse energy density, to evaluate the influence of these parameters in reaction mechanisms, kinetics and product yield.
