Developing reliable policy guidelines
A science-based evaluation of the impact of CO2 utilization technologies is essential to support decision making by both private and public stakeholders. Consistent evaluation tools are thus a prerequisite for creating a supportive policy environment, and will enable such technologies to act as an effective contribution to major challenges such as circular economy and climate targets.
