About this book

As the annual production of carbon Dioxide (CO2) reaches 30 billion tones, the growing issue of the greenhouse effect has triggered the development of technologies for CO2 sequestration, storage and use as a reactant. Collecting together the reports of the Congress at University of Rome (Campus Bio-medico) held 16th April 2012, CO2: A Valuable Source of Carbon presents and discusses promising technologies for the industrial exploitation of CO2.

 

Divided into two parts, the current technology is evaluated and summarized before European and national projects are presented. The focus on CO2 recovery, particularly in value-added production, proposes applicable methods to develop sustainable practices  and even to mitigate greenhouse gas emission from large-scale fossil fuels usage.

 

Including current data and real-world examples, CO2: A valuable source of carbon  provides students, engineers, researchers and industry professional with up-to-date material and potential areas for development and research.

About the authors

Marcello De Falco is assistant professor of “Dynamic and Control of Industrial Processes” at the Faculty of Engineering of “Campus Bio-Medico” of Rome and a researcher expert in reactor modelling. He has about 50 publications on reactor simulations, chemical processes development and technologies assessment.

Gaetano Iaquaniello is Vice President of Technology&Business Development of Tecnimont-KT S.p.A., a big process engineering company. He has a long experience on process development and plant design and on industrial research.

Gabriele Centi completed his industrial chemistry studies at the University of Bologna (Italy) and is Professor of Industrial Chemistry at the University of Messina (Italy). He is a former President of the European Federation of Catalysis Societies, and was Co-ordinator of the European Network of Excellence on catalysis IDECAT. He is co-Chairman of the Editorial Board of ChemSusChem and Chief Editor of the book series Studies in Surface Science and Catalysis (Elsevier) and Green Energy (De Gruyter). His research interests lie in the development of industrial heterogeneous catalysts for sustainable chemical processes, environmental protection, and clean energy.
