The fight against climate change was an ongoing battle, exacerbated by the significant contribution of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. Despite CO2 being a naturally occurring gas, the escalation of human activities has led to a pronounced surge in its levels, causing profound and detrimental effects on our planet’s ecosystem.

In Europe, progressive projects emerged to address this challenge head-on, such as CATCO2NVERS, an initiative dedicated to mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from Bio-Based Industries by converting waste CO2 from these sectors into five high-value chemicals. These chemicals, including glyoxylic acid, lactic acid, furan dicarboxylic methyl ester, cyclic carbonated fatty acid methyl esters, and bio-methanol, found applications across various industries, offering a sustainable alternative to fossil-based materials while significantly reducing or even eliminating greenhouse gas emissions.

To disseminate knowledge and foster collaboration, an online webinar titled “From CO2 to Chemicals: Five Conversion Technologies” was convened on Thursday, April 11, 2024. Organized jointly by seven project partners, the webinar aimed to showcase the latest advancements and discoveries in the realm of CO2 conversion into valuable chemicals. Open to all interested individuals, the event provided insights into carbon capture methods, highlighting their pivotal role in combatting climate change by curbing carbon emissions and promoting the development of eco-friendly products.
