Another company demonstrating a CO2 utilisation process recently has been the UK’s Econic Technologies, which has opened a plant in Cheshire in the north-west of England, which will produce polyols, sugar alcohols which are found naturally in some foods and used as a precursor for a range of other products. Econic uses a tunable catalyst which lowers the necessary pressures and temperatures usually needed to make polyols, and is hoping that within about ten years 30% of all polyol production will use its technology. It may prove an attractive market for the combustion industry to sell COas a byproduct to.
