Carbon2Chem: solutions for a cross industrial network
With the Paris Agreement, the international community is pursuing an ambitious goal: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the associated reduction in global warming to below 2 °C. Several strategies to reduce the CO2 emissions already exist. For individual sectors, there are approaches to avoid carbon directly (CDA). But the avoidance of carbon in certain industrial processes is problematic, especially if carbon is required as a chemical building block. In this case, one strategy is to capture and utilize the CO2 (CCU) produced during a production process and convert it into chemical products. By connecting different industrial sectors a cross industrial network is built. Thereby fossil fuels in one industry are replaced by the process emissions of another sector if renewable energy is used.
