SCOT (Smart CO2 Transformation) is a collaborative European project (supported by the Seventh Framework programme) in the area of CO2 Utilisation. The main objective of the project is to define a Strategic European Research and Innovation Agenda for Europe in the field of CO2 Utilisation.
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 or emission. SCOT’s strategic agenda and action plan will intend to move European policy towards this new paradigm.
