Overviews CO2 utilisation

Here you will find current "Policy Reports", which collect, classify and evaluate the current state of research on CO2 utilisation technologies, primarily for target groups in politics and industry and for societal interest groups.

Roadmap: Zukünftige Nutzung von CO2 als Rohstoffbasis in der deutschen Chemie- und Kunststoffindustrie (2019), German only

The roadmap of the Center for Environmental Systems Research (CESR) at the University of Kassel outlines the further development of technologies for CO2 utilisation in the chemical industry based on current technical, ecological and economic assessments and describes possible supporting measures to market maturity. It is intended to serve as a basis for a discussion with and between the actors involved in German industry.

Novel Carbon Capture and Utilisation Technologies (2018)

The report of the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors in the Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) of the European Commission provides the Commission with an answer to the question of how CO2 utilisation technologies can be assessed in future political decision-making processes and to what extent they can be promoted. The main aim is to clarify whether and under what circumstances such technologies can contribute to climate protection.

Carbon Dioxide Utilization (CO2U) ICEF ROADMAP (2017)   

The roadmap was developed in the run-up to COP-23 in Bonn. It looks at different categories of CO2-based products in the construction and chemical industries, the technologies that can be used to convert CO2 into these products, and the associated research and development needs. It also discusses the topic of life cycle analysis (LCA) and describes policy instruments that could be used to promote CO2-based products.

The potential and limitations of using carbon dioxide (2017)

The Policy Report of the Royal Society describes the current state of research on CO2 utilisation. This is done against the background of integrating these technologies into the political goal of creating a low carbon economy in Great Britain.

 The Business Side of Innovative CO2 Utilisation (2015)

The report of the Technical University of Berlin, prepared with the support of the EU initiative Climate-KIC of the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT), aims to describe CO2 utilisation technologies for a broad audience and primarily addresses economic aspects of CO2 utilisation. The market development of the individual CO2 utilisation technologies is described and possible obstacles to market entry are compared. The report also includes results of the EnCO2re research programme.

Putting CO2 to Use (2019)

The report of the International Energy Agency (IEA) provides a comprehensive overview of the possibilities of using CO2 and takes a critical look at them, also, for example, in the context of a future circular economy. It describes CO2 use technologies for various application sectors. The report also answers questions about the market potential and market maturity of these technologies. Framework conditions for the implementation of CO2 utilisation technologies in politics are shown and discussed.
