What is CO2 Utilisation?

Click here to read our 4-pager: CO2 Utilisation in a nutshell

Carbon dioxide utilisation is a broad term that covers a variety of innovative industrial processes, which use CO2 from point source emitters (and in the future from direct air capture) as a feedstock to transform CO2 into value added products. Therefore CO2  is treated as a resource, rather than a waste. SCOT’s strategic agenda and action plan will intend to move European policy towards this new paradigm.

The SCOT project focuses on three CO2 utlisation routes: mineral carbonisation, (synthetic) fuels and synthons for chemistry.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 319995
