Strengab Received 9th October 2015, Accepted 13th October 2015 DOI: 10.1039/c5fd90078f This paper introduces a set of 12 Principles, based on the acronym CO2 CHEMISTRY, which are intended to form a set of criteria for assessing the viability of different processes or reactions for using CO2 as a feedstock for making organic chemicals. The principles aim to highlight the synergy of Carbon Dioxide Utilisation (CDU) with the components of green and sustainable chemistry as well as briefly pointing out the connection to the energy sector. Introduction The world is changing rapidly. The global population is soaring, passing 7 billion in October 2011.1 Human consumption is already greater than our planet can sustain; furthermore, 1.3 billion of the Earth's inhabitants are profoundly poor and, on every criterion, deserve to consume more.2,3 Therefore, there is a need to increase chemical production to match the increased demand. However, it is generally accepted that petroleum reserves are nite and that it is necessary to nd alternative feedstocks for making those chemicals. Although the planet's reserves of coal are much larger than those of oil, it is not clear whether these could be exploited to make chemicals without the release of large quantities of CO2. Shale gas provides another large volume carbon source and, although its exploitation is associated with a large potential environmental burden, it is having a major impact on chemical production, oen causing a shi from petroleum feedstocks. Nevertheless, the utilization of all fossil resources ulti- mately contributes to anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, either directly (methane) and/or indirectly by producing CO2 as the end product of the value chain. aThe School of Chemistry, The University of Nottingham, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK.

CO2 Phase Change Demonstrator: Experiment with gas to liquids (CO2 to alcohol) using Nafion and our phase change demonstrator cart (we can ship worldwide)... More Info

CO2 GTL Gas to Liquids Experimental Platform: Experiment with gas to liquids (CO2 to alcohol) using Nafion (electrolyzer membrane) and our phase change demonstrator cart (we can ship worldwide). CO2 goes supercritical at 31 C. This is a experimental platform which you can use to demonstrate phase change with low heat. Includes integration area for small CO2 turbine, static generator, Nafion pellets, Nafion membrate, or Nafion tubes... More Info

Concept: The concept of the SeaMerlin Engine is to convert or supplement existing marine vessel propulsion to a gas leverage turbine which scavenges CO2 from saltwater at the same time it provides vessel thrust.
