Welcome Message

The International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization occurs since 1991 in a different part of the globe. It is the first time that this traditional event will be hosted at KAIST-South Korea. Since 2015, the event occurs annually. ICCDU is the most famous academic conference on carbon dioxide capture, separation, utilization and policy related aspects. The climate changes presently faced by the planet point out for the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions in the forthcoming years. Therefore, CO2 utilization will play a major role in the efforts of the society towards a more sustainable society. Come to KAIST Daejeon, South Korea to participate in the ICCDU 2021.
