We are happy to share with you a good presentation as was given by Prof. Dr. Sterner, a renowed Power-to-Gas (PtG) expert. He recorded his presenation for the SCOT "CO2-to-fuel" workshop (13 February 2015). Here's the link: http://www.power-to-gas.de/mp4/Talk_PTG_Sterner.mp4. But there are also hesitations whether PtX will reduce CO2 enough and whether it is the right way to go. Prof Turkenburg showed that in his presentation for the SCOT workshop at the ACHEMA conference (18 June 2015). Here's the presentation: http://www.scotproject.org/images/TurkenburgJune2015.pdf
There are lots of ways that you can be involved and help SCOT - either by specifically contributing to the definition of the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda or more generally to become a member of the SCOT community or a partner of the SCOT Network. Go to the "Get involved" page to find out more.
There are multiple reasons to think of. Basically CDU can be linked to a mix of underlying societal or policy objectives: competitiveness, innovation, energy security, climate change and the environment. For a more complete overview please visit our drivers page.
Carbon dioxide utilisation can perhaps best be seen as complementary to CCS. While CCS aims to reduce CO2 emissions by capturing it and re-injecting it into geological formations, CDU aims using CO2 emissions by exploiting the resource itself and creating new markets around it. The opportunities and objectives of CDU therefore are more present in the areas of competitiveness and innovation in industry (creating valuable end-products).
