Varone Alberto : Power to Liquid and Power to Gas in the German Energiewende Scenario

Alberto VARONE a) IASS – Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies e.V. – PotsdamCorresponding author email:  alberto.varone@iass-potsdam.de Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are the major driver of man-made climate change. The emission of carbon dioxide, the largest source of GHG, has growing dramatically in the last decades, due in large part to the combustion of fossil fuels for transportation and power generation [1,2]. The transition to a more sustainable energy system will therefore require a switch to low-GHG energy supply technologies such as...

Villa-Zaragoza Ana : Towards a hybrid LCA analysis of carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) processes

Ana VILLA-ZARAGOZA (a), Liam GAUCHER (b),  Peter STYRING (a), Lenny S.C KOH (b), Katy ARMSTRONG (a) a) University of Sheffield, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineeringb) University of Sheffield Management School (Centre for Energy, Environment and Sustainability)Corresponding author email:  apvillazaragoza1@sheffield.ac.uk Capturing carbon dioxide from flue gases and utilising it for the production of synthetic fuels, polymers, carbonate products (amongst others), is a technology that aims to lessen environmental impacts caused by greenhouse emissions and contribute to restoring the carbon balance by recycling CO2...

Walenta Gunther : Innovative approaches to reduce CO2 emissions

Günther Walenta, Cedric Comparet, Aurelie Martins Lafarge LCR, FranceCorresponding author email:  Gunther.Walenta@Lafarge.com Lafarge is strongly involved in a number of different actions to reduce the carbon footprint of its cements, by implementing various sustainable approaches. In 2001, Lafarge was the first group in its sector to make a voluntary commitment to reduce its CO2 emissions per ton of cement. It reached its target ahead of schedule, reducing its net emissions per ton of cement by more than 20% by the...

Wang Chenye : Enhanced CO2 mineral carbonation for industrial application with steelmaking slag

Weijun Bao, Huiquan Li, Chenye Wang and Zhenhua Sun National Engineering Laboratory for Clean Production Technology of Hydrometallurgy, Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, 100080, P.R. ChinaCorresponding author email: cywang@home.ipe.ac.cn CO2 mineral carbonation is a potentially important technology that can be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and even to produce beneficial products. Since 1990, many researchers had been devoted to develop industrial possible process for CO2 mineral carbonation. The raw materials for CO2 mineral carbonation are...

Wang Hua : Electrodeposited 3D porous Sn electrode for improved electrocatalytic performance in electroreduction of CO2 to HCOOH

Hua Wang, Jing Wang, Zhenzhen Han, Qingfeng Ge a/ School of Chemical Engineering & Technology,Tianjin University.Tianjin,ChinaCorresponding author email:  tjuwanghua@tju.edu.cn   The porous Sn foam is fabricated electrochemically at a copper substrate and then it serves as the cathode in electroreduction of CO2 for better electrocatalytic performance. The surface morphology and composition of the porous Pb samples were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and selected area electron patterning.  The SEM images indicated the honeycomb-like porous structure...

Wieland Hoppe : Comparison of GWP between Conventionally Produced and CO2-based Natural Gas used in Transportation versus Chemical Production

Hoppe WIELAND (a), Bringezu STEFAN (a,b), Liu YANG (a) a/ Center for Environmental Systems Research, University of Kasselb/ Wuppertal Institute, WuppertalCorresponding author email:  wieland.hoppe@uni-kassel.de   Today both car transport and the production of organic chemicals are largely based on fossil fuels. In Germany, against the background of the « Energiewende » (transformation of the energy system) and policies to enhance resource efficiency and substitution of fossil carbon sources in industry, the capacities for renewable SNG (synthetic natural gas) are going to be...

Yeo Tze Yuen : A Novel Thermochemical Process for Carbon Dioxide Mineralization and Sequestration

Tze Yuen YEO, Jie BU, Paul Nicholas SHARRATT (a) a/ Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences, A*STAR, SingaporeCorresponding author email:  Bu_jie@ices.a-star.edu.sg   Carbon mineralization (CM) is a promising long-term, large-capacity storage method for sequestering industrial emissions of carbon dioxide.[1] The challenge in designing feasible processes for carbon mineralization lies in minimizing the associated energy penalty, as well as moderating the operating conditions such that a large scale CM plant is not hazardous or polluting. At the Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences...

Zevaco Thomas : The coupling of epoxides and CO2 to carbonates: On the search for new N2O2- and N4-ligand systems.

M.A. Fuchs, M. Adolph, C. Altesleben, O. Walter, T. A. Zevaco, E. Dinjus, S. Pitter, J. Sauer Carbon dioxide can be seen as an “ideal” C1-building block because of its low toxicity and sheer endless availability, if one neglects its thermodynamic stability. The coupling of epoxides with carbon dioxide affording aliphatic polycarbonates as kinetic products and cyclic carbonates as thermodynamic products is in the growing focus of academia and industry owing to a promising range of applications [1,2]. Cyclic carbonates...
