Topical session 'CO2 as a resource' (Day 1, October 23)

Transformation of gaseous carbon resources into chemicals, fuels and materials

Chair person: Heleen De Wever

The use of CO2 as a carbon feedstock is known as Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) and includes processes in which CO2 from point sources or from the atmosphere is being used as feedstock for the synthesis of new molecules and materials with an economic value. Since this has the potential to create attractive business cases, more and more novel CCU technologies are being reported and the range of CO2-derived products is expanding.

This topical session will focus on the transformation of gaseous carbon resources into chemicals, fuels and materials. It will showcase promising examples of CCU technologies that have already reached (pre)commercial scale and will discuss the drivers and barriers for further implementation.
