TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENT: CARBON CAPTURE, UTILIZATION AND STORAGE
Topic: sustainable energy systems, resource recovery and carbon capture
The atmospheric concentration of CO2 has naturally fluctuated on the timescales of ice ages. Concerns, however, stem from the recent dramatic increase in CO2 concentration, which coincides with global industrial development. This rise is mainly due to the high use of fossil fuels during power generation and chemical production. In order to meet the ever-increasing global energy demands while stabilizing the atmospheric CO2 level, the development of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies is one of the critical needs. A number of these technologies including carbon mineralization mimic how nature balances the carbon cycle. The continuing fundamental study on CO2 interactions with engineered materials and natural materials will accelerate the development of CCUS technologies targeting both zero carbon and negative carbon emissions.
