To celebrate its 100th anniversary, Casale in collaboration with the Section Catalysis of the Swiss Chemical Society (SwissCat) is launching a new series of online mini symposia. Interested researchers from all over the world are cordially invited to participate and to learn about the latest developments in the fields of homogeneous, heterogeneous and bio-catalysis.



The first event takes place as follows:

Casale-Mini Symposium #1, 2021
online event via zoom, June 8, 2021
«Overview on research in the field of CO2 capture, storage and utilization»

The industry will have to reduce carbon emissions, reaching the net zero target in the next decades. At the same time industry will have to continue producing carbon containing molecules and products with  zero emissions. This is a challenging goal that need to be achieved developing the utilization of CO2 within a new carbon cycle. Casale believes that the development of novel highly-efficient technologies that aim at fully decarbonized industry can be achieved together with Universities in strict scientific collaborations.
