Carbon Dioxide Utilization: Leveraging Market Forces to Curb Emissions

Carbon dioxide utilization (CO2U) has gained momentum as a solution to achieve the world's climate goals. This set of technologies creates financial incentives to capture waste CO2 and can accelerate the uptake of carbon capture, storage, and utilization (CCUS). Many industries are perceiving CO2 as an important raw material for providing climate-friendly solutions, and at present, there are a wide variety of CO2 utilization technologies being explored, each at different stages of development and commercialization.
This webinar provides an in-depth overview of CO2U technologies and market trends, discussing the technical, environmental, and economic aspects of this industry and forecasting its potential. While the scale of CO2U is likely to remain modest over the next few years, IDTechEx's analysis suggests that the use of CO2 as a feedstock has the potential to drive a significant reduction in carbon emissions in key sectors by displacing fossil-derived products and fostering demand for captured CO2.
In this webinar, Technology Analyst Dr Hydra Rodrigues highlights the main findings of the latest IDTechEx's report, "Carbon Dioxide CO2 Utilization 2022-2042: Technologies, Market Forecasts, and Players", discussing the opportunities, the barriers, and the growth potential of CO2U technologies. The following questions are addressed:
  • What is CO2 utilization and how is CO2 converted into useful products?
  • What is the current state of the CO2U market?
  • What are the key drivers and hurdles for CO2U market growth?
  • What is the CO2U market outlook for the next 20 years?
