Analysis of Best-Practices and Success Factors for Biogenic CO2 Utilisation

  • The use of fossil resources must be phased out during the next decades in order to stay below a well below 2°C trajectory adopted with the Paris Agreement. The growing threat of climate changes arises large uncertainties concerning natural and social systems and induced changes on economic activities and human welfare in the 21st century. As recent climate negotiations failed to achieve significant progress to stop the climate change, GHG emissions fragmented the international communities. Total carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration is at the highest levels ever recorded. Since, it is very important to differentiate the total CO2 and its origin. Evidently, CO2 has been identifed as the most important GHG because it contributes the largest share to the anthropogenic increase of radiative forcing and grows fastest. Anthropogenic sources of CO2 emissions are fossilfuel combustion (FFC), cement production, traditional biomass combustion and land use change, which contain chlorouorocarbons, hydrochlorouorocarbons and others. Where Biogenic CO2 emission sources are fermentation, biogas and other biological process. Compare to atropogenicsource with high purity. The thesis provides an improved overview of R&D, pilot, demonstration and commercial projects that capture CO2 from biogas plants and other biogenic sources and subsequently put this carbon to further use. Best practices in terms of business models and GHG saving potentials are described. The CO2 emissions mitigation are related to the innovation, technologies, investment and moreover the strong policies from the Government
