CO2 as Raw Material - Electronic Press File

Plastic foams, fuels or pharmaceuticals made from CO2 - is that possible?
Can we extract carbon from carbon dioxide rather than crude oil? And can we thereby turn the climate-damaging gas CO2 into a valuable raw material?
Yes! Research makes it possible.

To date, research has suggested promising approaches and methods. With its current activities, the Federal Ministry of Research and Education funds research and development-projects, in which new and moreefficient methods for CO2-utlisation are being developed.

These funding measures are part of the BMBF-Framework Programme "Research for Sustainable Development - FONA³".
