Panel Discussion: Carbon capture utilization: turning a pollutant into a product
This international panel consisted of experts in the science, technology, and market introduction of carbon dioxide utilization – the introduction of CO2 as a feedstock for industrially attractive products. Technological hurdles on the way to market at both the discovery level and at the scale-up level were discussed. Panelists also explored the challenges of introducing CO2-based products to existing and new markets in the fuel, chemistry, and materials sectors.
