Opportunities in carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies

Australia could turn carbon dioxide waste into a valuable revenue stream according to a new report from Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO.

CCU technologies capture CO₂ from the waste streams of industrial processes, or directly from the atmosphere, and convert it into useful new products, ranging from synthetic fuels to food and beverages, chemicals, and building materials.

Currently, industries such as cement, steel, plastics and heavy transport are unable to rely on renewable technologies alone and account for about a sixth of Australia’s emissions and around a third of global emissions.
