Scientists are ramping up efforts to turn waste CO2 from industry into chemicals such as methanol in a bid to reduce emissions and provide a new source of raw materials for use in fuel, cement and food production. It’s part of a strategy to halt global warming by cutting down the amount of CO2 we vent into the air and then re-using it - a technique known as carbon capture and utilisation (CCU).
At a facility run by Carbon Recycling International (CRI) beside the picturesque Blue Lagoon in southwest Iceland, water, energy and waste carbon dioxide from a nearby geothermal power station are being used to make methanol, which can be blended with petrol to power cars or turned into a range of chemicals. We take CO2 originally dissolved in the steam coming from underground and we re-use some of it as a raw material in our process former research director and now head of sales and marketing at CRI.
