CO2 - a Greenhouse Gas as a Raw Material for Chemistry
Can carbon dioxide, i.e. CO2, be used as a raw material for chemical products or even for fuels? Nature shows us how: CO2 is converted into sugar with sunlight in the process of photosynthesis. Due to the dynamic worldwide expansion of renewable energies, we have more and more non-fossil energy sources available to us.
This lecture critically discusses which technologies could make it possible to use CO2 as a carbon source for chemical products or fuels with the help of "green" electricity and what role basic research plays in this.
