Abstract

This article provides an introductory overview for defining the scope, potential and limitations of carbon dioxide (CO2) conversion and utilization. There are various sources of CO2 emissions, which are dominated by combustion of liquid, solid, and gaseous fuels. The amount of CO2 consumption for organic chemicals is relatively small compared to CO2 emitted from fossil fuel combustion. However, CO2 conversion and utilization should be an integral part of carbon management. Proper use of CO2 for chemical processing can add value to the CO2 disposal by making industrially useful carbon-based products. Studies on CO2 conversion into carbon-based chemicals and materials are important for sustainable development. CO2 conversion and utilization could also be positioned as a step for CO2 recycling and resource conservation.
