As power plants and other facilities with high CO2 emissions move towards the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through the installation of CO2 capture units, increasing amounts of CO2 will become available as a resource for a variety of applications. Although geologic sequestration looks promising as an option for the storage of CO2, this approach may not be viable for all CO2 emitters. Therefore, alternatives to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) are needed that can use captured CO2 directly or convert it to valuable products, such as fuels, chemicals, or plastics. Using/reusing CO2 can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. This session will be concerned with chemical transformations using the CO2 resource and developing technologies that can beneficially use CO2 to produce valuable products, particularly products that tie up the carbon indefinitely
