Global CO2 Initiative, Japanese Government Partner to Create Roadmap for CO2 Utilization Technologies

Note: This article was carried over from CO2 Sciences as a result of our merger.

The Global CO2 Initiative is partnering with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) of the Government of Japan to develop a first of its kind roadmap for global implementation of carbon dioxide utilization technologies. The CO2 Utilization Roadmap will survey a number of existing technologies that convert CO2 to products, as well as identify future market opportunities and barriers to further development. The Roadmap will outline steps that need to be taken to roll out carbon dioxide utilization technologies based on several variables such as competitiveness, readiness and policy implications.

Global CO2 Initiative Launches with Ambitious Strategy to Reduce Atmospheric CO2

Note: This article was carried over from CO2 Sciences as a result of our merger.

The Global CO2 Initiative was launched today during the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum. The Initiative, and its research funding arm CO2 Sciences, will catalyze innovative research in carbon capture and utilization (CCU). It will also accelerate commercialization of CCU products. Preliminary estimates put the annual market for CCU products at $800 billion – $1.1 trillion by 2030 with potential annual reduction of CO2 in the range of two to three gigatons.
