Abstract

Strategies to capture CO2 from existing industrial processes are considered important in the transition to low carbon economies. CO2 reuse offers the possibility of making different contributions to the mitigation of overall emissions. In order to enable re-use at different scales, knowledge on the practical logistics of capture, treatment and transport is essential before establishing whether a final conversion process would be viable. In addition to knowledge on individual stages of the value chain, the implications of each stage must be adapted to the processes of subsequent and preceding stages in the local context. This understanding helps stakeholders to search for partners and explore business cases according to the composition and scale of the source, feasible distances and final application requirements.
