About this book
Carbon dioxide utilisation processes convert CO2 into commercially viable products such as chemicals, polymers, building materials and fuels. This emerging technology can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by using CO2 to manufacture useful products. While generally un-reactive, CO2 can be activated, particularly through catalysis, to yield a vast array of chemical feedstocks, intermediates and value-added products. For this to be effective, a synergistic approach is needed where multiple technologies and energy sources are integrated over a complete system. Following the Carbon Dioxide Utilisation Faraday Discussion (September 2015), this book provides a holistic approach, identifying where efficiencies can enhance the whole process economics and predicting where there may be bottlenecks in the supply chain. Carbon dioxide utilisation is presented as a complementary rather than competitive approach to carbon capture and storage, where the product produces a viable profit that can be used to off-set carbon capture technologies.

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2012) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.82.
