As an industrialised country, Germany has a special responsibility to actively contribute towards the Paris Climate Agreement without compromising its competitiveness. The defossilisation and modernisation of energy-intensive industries plays a key role in this process. Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Carbon2Chem® collaborative project has been working on using harmful CO2 from industrial manufacturing as a raw material for the chemicals industry since 2016. By connecting different sectors and using renewable sources of energy, CO2 can be turned into a valuable resource for the ecofriendly production of synthetic fuels or basic chemicals. Carbon2Chem® aims to sustainably utilise around 20 million tonnes of CO2 emitted from industrial processes by 2030. The third Carbon2Chem® conference will provide information about the goals that have already been achieved and highlight the challenges of implementing innovative approaches.
