– CO2 Capture and Conversion : When Emissions turn to Value Added Products


If we consider CO2 not as a pollutant but as a waste, the 3RV rule applies to it. Thus by capturing and converting it into useful products, we place ourselves in a perspective of recycling and recovery.
Today’s advanced CO2 capture technologies open the door to a cleaner conversion and recovery of CO2 at lower costs. In this presentation, estimates of the GHG emission reduction potential of conversion technologies are presented by families of similar technologies. A ranking of final product families is based on the amount of GHG emission reduction achieved. The findings show that some products stand out for their ability to leverage GHG reductions. As GHG reduction policies spread and carbon prices rise, doors open to new markets for CO2-based products.
