Session background and objectives
CO2 is a stable compound generated through combustion of fossil fuels. CO2 is currently used for various industrial feedstock such as chemicals, bath additives, foaming gas, refrigerant, and dry ice. However, the volume of CO2 for such uses is small. In CO2 Utilization session, we will discuss the uses of CO2 utilization that consumes large amount of CO2 and sequestrate for a long time. We are planning to develop a roadmap on research, development, and deployment of CO2 utilization technologies. We will also present the draft roadmap. Possible application includes fuel, construction materials, chemical products, plastics, foods, and industrial gases.
