The potential of the CCU technologies in mitigating the climate change

Posted Posted in Yleinen

Carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technologies have an enormous potential in reducing the environmental impacts and mitigating the climate change, however applied alone, these technologies do not have the capacity to solve the climate crisis. From a climate change mitigation perspective, avoidance and reduction of the current emissions should be a priority, while simultaneously directing… Read More »

Electrofuels and P2Chemicals are emerging – How to renew the world’s oil refineries and petrochemical industry?

Posted Posted in Yleinen

We need electrofuels for reducing emissions from transport and P2Chemicals for cleaner products from the chemical industry. Both are produced with Power-to-X technology. However, someone must first create the needed technologies and build the production facilities. There are export opportunities for Finnish companies in electrofuels and chemical industry products and in process technologies. Joint Power-to-X… Read More »

Biogenic CO2 captured for chemicals production

Posted Posted in Blog

Over 40 % of global greenhouse gas emissions originate from heat and power production.  These emissions can be reduced by shifting to renewable energy sources. For instance, by applying sustainable biomass for heat and power generation, near-zero-emissions are possible and even negative emissions could be reached via carbon capture and storage (BECCS) or carbon capture and utilization (BECCU).… Read More »
