Welcome to CO2Chem

CO2Chem brings together academics, industrialists and policy makers over a wide range of disciplines to consider the utilisation of carbon dioxide as a single carbon chemical feedstock for the production of value added products.

Network activities are geared towards the founding of strong cross-disciplinary research clusters that will lead research in this increasingly important area.

Our primary objective is to develop science and engineering strategies to tackle CO2 capture and re-use over a 20-40 year time frame and to identify funding streams to address their implementation. We aim to ease our reliance as a society on petrochemical based feedstocks for the production of commodity chemicals, taking a more environmentally sound approach to chemicals production.

utilization cycleThe CO2Chem Network was formed as a result of the EPSRC Grand Challenges and has created a research community that considers new approaches to chemical synthesis, from laboratory to production, using carbon dioxide as the chemical feedstock. Carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) is a quickly growing, wide field of research with a diverse array of possible products. Therefore, the CO2Chem network aims to be an all-encompassing, non-prescriptive network covering the entire breadth of the CDU landscape.

CO2Chem is continuously growing and currently has over 800 global members from 294 different organisations. Membership is divided beween industry, academia, research institutions and government. With over 38% of our members working in industry.
