The funding measure "Technologies for Sustainability and Climate Protection - Chemical Processes and Use of CO2" supports science and business in the joint development and testing of innovative technologies and methods. To conserve our resources and to contribute to climate protection, chemical processes should be more efficient and new processes for the use of CO2 should be developed.

By transferring the effects achieved to subsequent production processes and products, an exceptionally large leverage action can be achieved in the resource-intensive chemical industry. Furthermore the varied approaches in this area offer a high potential for generating future crossover technologies.

Key areas:

  • Use of CO2
  • Efficiency increase for chemical processes with a high use of primary energy and material
  • Development and application of functional solvents as a measure to minimise emissions that affect the climate
  • Further development of industrial equipment and components for chemical implementation and preparation processes
  • Optimisation of raw material and energy efficiency
  • Innovations on CO2 separation and activation
