Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions must be reduced in order to prevent 2°C warming by 2100 and avoid substantial negative environmental and economic consequences. Converting CO2 into useful products and materials can improve the economic viability of carbon capture and storage (CCS), potentially creating a multi-billion dollar commodity market. This special issue will focus on experimental and numerical work related to carbon dioxide (CO2) Utilization. To date, the largest industry sector for CO2 utilization has been injection as part of enhanced oil recovery operations; however, utilization schemes with larger carbon storage timeframes are encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the conversion of CO2 to value-added chemicals and fuels; bioconversions; use in building materials (i.e., cements), and CO2 mineralization above and below Earth’s surface. Utilization analyses must include a “good faith” attempt at estimating the net carbon impact of each technique considered. In addition, we welcome studies which consider the economics of utilization pathways in addition to technical discussion.
