CCUS for the Pulp and Paper Industry Webinars – Session 2, Video 3, a presentation by Philippe Navarri
The urgency of climate change mitigation and the increased interest in circular economy are driving interest in opportunities to capture CO2 from industrial sites or the atmosphere for sequestration or the development of sustainable products. It is now well admitted that carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is an essential option to achieve our 2050 net-zero emissions objectives. Because the majority of CO2 emissions in pulp and paper mills is biogenic, capturing this CO2 is considered a net CO2 removal from the atmosphere. Therefore, the pulp and sector can play a critical role in helping Canada achieve its net-zero emission objective. Although CCS has the potential to deliver much larger CO2 emissions reductions, CCU is expected to play a critical role where there is limited storage capacity, in decarbonizing of hard-to-abate sectors such as aviation and maritime transportation, and in the production of "greener" products as an alternative option to replace products that would otherwise be fossil-based. A wide range of CO2 utilization technologies exist to produce a variety of value-added products including chemicals, fuels, polymers and construction materials that are often seen as a new revenue stream for the industry. In this webinar, a review of CO2 utilization opportunities to produce value-added "green" products (e.g. alcohols, fuels etc.) will be presented, their attractiveness assessed, and key aspects to consider for their implementation will be discussed.
