Carbon dioxide should be considered as a useful commodity for the chemicals industries. It is a C-1 feedstock that has been used to produce an array of value added products, thereby allowing new fossil carbon to be introduced into the supply chain. There are limitations. We produce over 35 Gt/yr CO2 emissions. Only 1.25 Mt are captured through CCS technologies and these are in global decline. Only around 250 Mt/yr CO2 emissions are used in CCU as it is a growing industry. Therefore, we have an issue of scale. What CCU-derived products could possibly make an impact?


Peter Styring (BSc. PhD. CEng. CChem. FIChemE. FRSC) is Professor of Chemical Engineering & Chemistry at the University of Sheffield. He is an expert in Carbon Capture & Utilisation (CDU) with increasing expertise in CDU policy.
