Technologies for sustainability and climate protection – chemical processes and utilisation of CO2 as a material (2013)

Faced with a shortage of fossil resources, carbon dioxide may change from being a "problem substance" to become a valuable resource. The publication illustrates the potential of CO2 to cover the chemical industry's demand for carbon. Also, CO2 can be employed as an energy store. At the same time, research is conducted as to how the chemical industry's greenhouse gas emissions may be curbed by increasing energy efficiency and the use of functional solvents.
