Carbon dioxide is an essential compound for the survival of almost all living organisms including plants and animals. It can also be used for various kinds of useful purposes. Carbon dioxide is used in refrigeration for cooling purposes. It is used as an inert gas in various kinds of chemical processes. Scientists use the captured CO2 as a resource to make useful materials.
As we know that our world is facing a climatic change crisis and the major culprit of climatic change is the overabundance of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The extensive use of fossil fuels has created an excess of CO2 in the atmosphere, leading to global warming.
But now the scientist is trying to use CO2 to create ethylene that is a chemical precursor. Ethylene is used in the chemical industry and is the starting material in the manufacture of detergents, synthetic lubricants, and the vast majority of plastics that are essential for our modern society.
Scientists meeting in Germany this summer also have pointed out the ways of making money from some of the carbon dioxide emissions that are fuelling climate change. It’s seen as an alternative to the costly process of storing CO2 underground.
Some companies are already using CO2 captured from power plants or factories to make useful products such as fuels, polymers, fertilizers, proteins, and construction materials.
Carbon 8 Aggregates, for instance, is using waste-incinerator ash destined for landfill, mixing it with water and CO2 to form artificial limestone for building blocks.
Katy Armstrong of the Carbon Utilisation Centre at Sheffield University in the U.K. says, “We need to manufacture products without increasing CO2 emissions, and if we can use waste CO2 to help make them, so much the better.”View Details
