SESSION 2, Materials and chemicals
In the future, we will not have one global solution, but we will rather have a whole serious of different solutions within our carbon management strategies. The utilization of CO2 is one option, with CO2 being used either in a chemical, biological or physical way. However, to close the carbon cycle, we need to check carbon and energy balances of all the possible solutions we investigate. Ideally, we carry out overall life cycle assessments (LCA) as early as possible. These LCAs should become an in integral part of our research – for a sustainable future.
