Prepared in 2016, this comprehensive report — authored by Lux Research for CO2 Sciences — benchmarks current carbon capture, utilization, and storage technology, companies, and research efforts.
Global warming due to carbon dioxide emissions is the grand challenge of our time. Carbon capture and utilization (CO2U) technologies have the potential to significantly lower CO2 emissions.
This study analyzed the state of CO2U technology in 2016: Four major market opportunities in fuel, building materials, chemical intermediates and polymers were found. Almost 180 technology developers were analyzed to assess technology feasibility, readiness, and momentum.
