The project "CO2 as an asset (CCU) - potentials & challenges for society"explores the social potential of CCU technologies from different angles, and in an interdisciplinary fashion. At the interface of science, politics, NGOs and the media, the IASS encompasses diverse perspectives und manifold expertise. Project milestones include an assessment of the economic potential of CCU technologies, and the development of parameters for successful communication of "CO2 as an asset" into society. The Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of CCU technologies and products lays an important foundation in this regard.
The results of the research program, will evaluate CCU as enabling technologies for sustainability and consequently permit a profound consultation to German and European politics and NGOs. The project is carried out in cooperation with the RWTH Aachen and Covestro.
