Innovations in CO2 utilization are opening avenues for applications in various areas. New, exciting prospects for CO2 uses are emerging in chemicals, fuels, building materials, and polymers. Will increasing subsidies for alternative technology projects impact the traditional uses for CO2 in oil recovery? Will direct CO2 capture from air become successful? What end uses are likely to establish an outlet for carbon emissions? How do we balance care for climate change with project viability?
