Turning waste gases (CO2) from steel industry into chemicals

19 December 2017

A recent study (CORESYM) looks at the potential to turn waste gases from the steel industry into high-value chemicals and fuels. The study found that applying the findings in just this one industry could reduce European carbon emissions by 1.3%, as well as relieve pressure on essential biomass feedstocks in generating new chemicals.
While the study shares an optimistic outlook for waste gas recycling profitability given current technological developments, it cautions that the technologies available for CO recycling are not yet profitable on their own. Large investments are required to scale existing technologies and solve technical challenges (News Item Metabolic, 29 November 2017).
