Home CO2 to Chemicals – Enabling Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a significant contributor to climate change; globally efforts are being undertaken to convert emitted CO2 into valuable chemicals or fuels. While CO2 is available in abundance, it has not yet been widely used to generate value-added products on a large commercial scale. There are challenges involved in the CO2 conversion process. Before being transformed into a useful product, CO2 must be chemically converted into carbon monoxide (CO). Researchers are focusing on improving the process technology and also making efforts towards catalyst engineering, which can directly impact the chemical reaction.

Valorization of CO2 as a feedstock to produce high-value chemicals by replacing or reducing the use of fossil fuel raw materials would be a lucrative strategy that would eventually convert sustainable goals into business opportunities. Numerous chemicals, including high-value products like methanol, ethylene, methane, and ethanol, are identified as the expected products only by the reduction process of CO2.
