Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the scientific committee decided to postpone the „30th ATC - Industrial Inorganic Chemistry - Materials and Processes“ previously scheduled 25-26 February 2021 to 2022. We will be glad to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ATC Conference with you in person in 2022 in Frankfurt. The new date will be announced in due time.
Therefore we welcome you to the „ATC Special – Online Edition: Industrial Inorganic Chemistry - Materials and Processes” taking place on 25 February 2021 with six invited lectures. It focuses on one of the most pressing issues of these days, a carbon free economy.
Also, join the 1st ATC PhD Student Workshop to discuss the question „How can inorganic chemistry help to minimize climate change?“. The Online Workshop will take place on 24 February 2021.
Both online events will provide excellent opportunities for established and young researchers from academia and industry to exchange knowledge, to get in contact and will foster out-of-the-box thinking to generate new ideas.
ATC Conference goes PhD and discusses aspects of the currently most pressing issue to minimize climate change.
How can inorganic chemistry help to minimize climate change?
Join the 1st ATC PhD Student Workshop online on Wednesday, 24th February 2021 and help to give an answer to the question ”What kind of processes, materials and products currently are developed in industry and within the academic world to reduce green-house gases?”
The workshop will provide a forum for PhD students and young scientists from academia and industry.
Experts from industry and academia will give an overview in tandem lectures on different aspects of how different initiatives are aiming at minimizing the climate change. This is followed by selected short presentations of the participants (PhD students). In the afternoon participants can present their posters and visit the recruiting booths of the companies.
PhD students who only attend the Workshop on 24 February will pay a reduced fee of 50 EUR (members) / 65 EUR (regular). We recommend to take part in both events ATC PhD Student Workshop on 24 February and the ATC Special on 25 February 2021 for 80 EUR (members) / 95 EUR (regular).
This specially focused "ATC Special - Online Edition" will solely deal with the question of a decarbonized hydrogen production and use in industry. As a counterpoint the controversial topic of deep decarbonization will be discussed in a special lecture.

Towards a decarbonized Chemical Industry
Clean hydrogen-technology is currently enjoying an unprecedented momentum. Its flexibility makes it so useful within future energy systems.
Hydrogen already can be gained from a wide variety of resources. In addition, it can be used in a wide range of applications, such as power generation, fuel and as a base chemical for the chemical- and steel industry. Moreover, hydrogen is already used in the chemical industry, so industry is familiar with its production, handling and distribution. While green hydrogen can help to decarbonize our energy system, however, the use of hydrogen in the economy also has to face challenges including bottlenecks related to scientific, technical and materials issues and the competition with optional technologies.
