North American CO2 Summit 2019

A More Strategic Supply Chain

Conrad Indianapolis, United States, 8th - 9th October 2019

gasworld hosted its first ever CO2 Summit in Austria in March 2017, when the emphasis was on bridging the supply gap as some regions expected to experience significant supply-demand imbalance in the years ahead.

Two years on and supply has become a significant issue as anticipated, with the CO2 Summit 2019 returning to Austria in March to discuss the high-profile CO2 shortages of 2018 across Europe and the drive for alternative sourcing.

The summer of 2018 will be remembered for that carbon dioxide crisis in Europe and Mexico, but significant concerns remain in the US too where lower annual capacity growth is not keeping pace with voracious CO2 demand and a precariously tight balance exists – particularly during times of planned and unplanned plant outages and seasonal demand spikes and price increases.

Now, gasworld brings the CO2 Summit stage to the North American market for the first time, to tackle these supply dynamics, the rampant applications growth and the drive for A More Strategic Supply Chain in the future.

To be held at The Conrad Hotel in Indianapolis, a regional hub for CO2 distributors, the North American CO2 Summit 2019 will provide a platform for much-needed discussion on future sourcing and supply routes, the need for which is arguably more pressing than ever before. Players need to strategically plan for future sources to alleviate tight supply and match future demand growth.

At the same time, industry as a whole is in the spotlight to reduce its carbon footprint and has never been more conscious of its environmental responsibilities, giving added weight to cleaner alternative sourcing technologies such as Direct Air Capture (DAC) and CO2 recovery. The Summit will also explore the new, the trending and the traditional applications which are driving such strong CO2 demand.

The event, held from 8-9 October 2019, will provide invaluable networking opportunities between gas suppliers, end-users and equipment innovators alike. Experts from a variety of companies will be on hand to speak on applications and production technologies – either during the Summit itself or the exhibition programme.

Against a backdrop of shifting sourcing and demand dynamics, what better time to join a carefully targeted gathering of the CO2 business and take part in such crucial discussion and debate?
