The EU process industry needs to become less dependent of fossils as source of carbon, and – at the same time – to reduce the greenhouse effect by decarbonizing the economy. Carbon4PUR will tackle the two challenges at the same time by transforming the CO2/CO containing flue gas streams of the energy-intensive industry into higher value intermediates for market-oriented consumer products.
The consortium and the development are organized along the full value chain, starting with the provision and conditioning of industrial emissions from a steel to a chemical company fully in line with the concept of industrial symbiosis, going through the transformation into chemical building blocks – lactones and cyclic carbonates – and from the CO and CO2 based polymer intermediates, finally arriving at the implementation into rigid foams and coatings. The project is coordinated by Covestro Deutschland AG
