COMMERCIAL USES OF CO2

"Green CO2" produced in the LIFE CO2IntBio project is obtained by the purification of the COpresent in the combustion gases of a biomass power plant (renewable energy).

CO2 as a commercial product has multiple applications and is highly demanded by different sectors of activity.

CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION. CAPTURE, PURIFICATION AND USE OF CO2

Increase of CO2 concentration in the atmosphere causes serious climate changes.

More awareness and sustainability in production and consumption is needed.

Carbon Capture and Use Technologies (CCU), can contribute to climate change mitigation (reduction of greenhouse gases emissions). They separate CO2 from industrial combustion gases to purify it, condition it and use it later as a resource or raw material.

ECODESIGNED WEBSITE

This website has been ecodesign to reduce carbon emissions generated by the visits of the web users.

Each visit to a website can emit between 1 and 3 grames of COequivalent, depending on how it has been designed.

The design of this web, has followed the recommendations of the Guide created by https://www.greenit.fr/ and it has been verified by the toolkits:  http://www.ecoindex.fr/ and http://www.ecometer.org/ 

Carbon capture and use

Carbon capture is a process by which it is possible to isolate the CO2 present in the gases that are emitted in the processes of industrial combustion or electricity generation. This would be the first process of the techniques known as Carbon Capture, Storage and Use (CCUS).

After its capture, it is possible to use carbon dioxide in the same place where it has been captured or transport it to the place of use, which constitutes Carbon Capture and Use techniques (CCU).
