About this Research Topic
Converting CO2 to valuable fuel or chemicals can be a significant opportunity to get CCUS started and has this been an on-the-rise solution to global warming and more sustainable fuels and materials. However, due to the thermal stability of CO2, converting CO2 in fuel and chemicals can be energy intensive, thus making it challenging to balance value creation and effective CO2 emissions reduction.
From this is born the motivation to form a comprehensive picture of the knowledge on the current advances in CO2 capture and conversion techniques.
This Research Topic aims to gather current knowledge and pressing questions about CO2 capture and conversion to fuels and chemicals. Original Research, Review, Mini Review, Methods and Opinion will be welcome. Subjects areas welcomed include, but are not limited to, the following aspects:
• CO2 separation techniques: absorption, membranes, adsorption, cryogenic, etc.
• CO2 conversion: photocatalytic, thermal, chemical, etc…
• CO2 utilisation from industrial plants
• Direct Air Capture (DAC) and CO2 utilization
• Techno-economic and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of CO2 separation and/or conversion
Keywords: CCUS, CO2 capture, CO2 utilization, techno-economic analysis, Life Cycle Analysis
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
