The CO2Chem network along with other UK research projects was mentioned by Gregory Barker, the Minister of State, Department of Energy and Climate Change in his reply to Laura Sandys stating that:

To help to answer these questions and to encourage academics to share ideas, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council has funded the CO2Chem network, which I understand could be the largest CCU network in the world, with more than 800 global members. My officials attended its meeting in October 2013 to hear the latest news and innovative ideas direct from the CCU community.……….. We fully support the work of the CO2Chem network, which has made carbon lifecycle analysis of CCU technologies a key priority across its research areas.

This is great news for the network in terms of the recognition we receive from the UK government.
