New technology is being used by Indian firm Carbon Clean Solutions to capture carbon dioxide from industrial processes and use it to manufacture new products.

In the effort to decarbonise industries that are emitting a great deal of CO2, there is an opportunity to make use of the carbon as a resource. Noticing the potential in this symbiotic relationship, Carbon Clean Solutions developed the technology to capture carbon dioxide from industry and use it as a feedstock to produce commercially viable chemicals, bio-oils, materials, and fuels. Carbon Clean Solutions is the only company to have delivered its technology to a site in India without subsidies, and to be showing the potential scalability of its technology everywhere.

This solution was featured in Upcycling Carbon market of the 2018 Global Opportunity Report, and was selected based on the criteria of that report.
