There is currently considerable interest in the use of CO2 as a chemical feedstock. In this article, the requirements for the effective use of CO2 as part of a carbon capture and utilization process to enhance the financial viability of carbon capture and storage are discussed. These are then illustrated with work done on the development of catalysts for the synthesis of cyclic carbonates from epoxides and CO2 in flue-gas at one bar pressure and 20-100 degrees C in both batch and gas-phase flow reactors.
