CO2 Conversion to Chemicals with Emphasis on using Renewable Energy/Resources to Drive the Conversion

CO2 utilization is a growing field with many different approaches. Here we have mainly summarized two approaches: first, one in which hydrocarbons react with CO2 to produce useful products; and second, one in which electricity from renewable energy is used to convert CO2 into useful products. There is still more fundamental and practical work to be done, but it looks likely that both approaches will produce viable commercial processes within the next few years.
