The chemical engineering aspects of CO2 capture, combined with its utilisation

Gabriele Centi, Siglinda Perathoner

CO2 carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies are discussed from the chemical engineering perspective of their role in a future low-carbon scenario. We highlighted that current techno-economic assessment procedures have limits in predicting the role of CCU technologies. There is a need to pass from current 1st-generation power-to-X technologies to synthesise e-fuels to the 2nd-generation solar fuel technologies. The hard-to-abate sector, particularly steel and cement production, is also shortly analysed, remarking on the necessity to overcome current approaches starting from analysing the critical aspects limiting feasibility and economics.
