    Abstract

    The climate change forces us to shift from fossil to renewable resources. Biogenic CO2 converted into hydrocarbons with renewable electricity can simultaneously provide us with raw materials and fuels, a positive climate impact and healthy business opportunities. Integrated CCU options benefit from energy integration, a local CO2 source substantially reducing the CO2 transportation costs, adjustable CO2 purity and the possibility to utilise the produced fuels and chemicals on-site. In this paper, we examine CO2 capture and utilisation (CCU) in formic acid production at a pulp mill, a novel CO2 capturing concept especially suitable for biogas production as well as the potential in new CO2 concrete curing methods.
