3 supercriticals years!

3 years ago I started this blog whit the aim of spreading the supercritical fluids technology...

during these 3 years I've participated in several groups with similar purposes...
the flucomp network (Association of Experts in Compressed Fluid; a group of scientists and technologists focused on developing and promoting technologies with supercritical fluids.), and the AFTS (Business Association for the Advancement of Supercritical Technology).

CO2 could be used in 'green' plastic production

/By Ben Coxworth/

Excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has certainly become an environmental concern in recent years, but researchers from Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology are now experimenting with a process that uses CO2 to process plastic products in an environmentally-friendly fashion. They have discovered that by compressing the gas, it can be used to impregnate plastic objects with dyes, antibacterial compounds, or other substances. Traditionally, toxic solvents have been used for coloring plastic items.

The 11th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CARBON DIOXIDE UTILIZATION will be held in the Université de Bourgogne, Dijon (France) - June 27-30.2011.

ICCDU XI will give emphasis on leading edge research from basic science to development relevant to the current issues of CO2 such as capture from emission sources, feedstock for the energy and chemicals sectors, and utilization in general.

The aim of the conference is to bring together the academic and industrial communities for crossfertilization of ideas and concepts to practical and profitable innovations.
