One of the goals of E3C3 program is the valorisation of CO2 to produce different chemicals or to produce biofuels. The chemical engineering family should face different challenges: how to activate that inert molecule, how to follow its concentration and what kind of chemical reactor to use.

The LSPC (INSA Rouen) has an experience in process intensification and safety. Its goal in this program is to develop a pilot for CO2 capture and to investigate the different ways of CO2 valorisation. For E3C3, it is important to invite different specialists of chemical reactor, chemical reaction, catalyst and optic methods.

A seminar regarding chemical reaction and chemical engineering will be organized from 19th to 20th of February 2015 at INSA Rouen (Bâtiment Dumont d'Urville, amphi DU BRJ 02). Several specialists on optical methods from England and several specialists on CO2 valorisation and chemical reactors will be present.
