About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 20 March 2023

As of the year 2021, the global emission of CO2 was 36.3 billion tons, which was 6% higher than the year 2020. If this trend continues without further mitigation, the global emission CO2 is projected to increase to 43 billion tons by 2050. As a result, there will be a significant increase in global warming and the greenhouse effect. Consequently, this will provide significant negative effects on society. In order to solve this problem, various clean technologies have been developed to capture, store and reutilize CO2, with a target of 7-32% reutilization to reduce global emissions to 9.7 billion tons by the year 2050.

For decades, wide ranges of CO2 capture, storage, and utilization technologies have been proposed and developed. In fact, some technologies have been implemented industrially. Nevertheless, continuous improvements on these technologies through research are currently ongoing in order to enhance the performance of these technologies, and consequently, closer to the goal of global emission reduction by 2050. Therefore, this research topic aims to gather the brightest mind in this field by sharing and communicating their recent findings related to CO2 capture, storage, and utilization technologies in this journal publication with a common goal to reduce global CO2 emission towards a sustainable and bright future.

Researchers are welcome to submit original research, review articles, or perspectives with areas including, but not limited to:
• CO2 capture and storage technology.
• Catalytic system involving reutilization of CO2 into value-added products.
• Industrial process system analysis involving CO2 capture, storage, and utilization technology.
• Life cycle, economic, safety, or sustainability assessment of CO2 capture, storage, and utilization technology.

The green CCUS technologies are in line with SDGs (Goal 13) to mitigate the climate change impacts.

Keywords: CO2 Capture, CO2 Transformation, Sustainable Chemical Engineering
