Global Carbon Wealth

Interesting discussion with Suren Erkman, Frédéric Meylan et Vincent Moreau on carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and valorisation. When you know that the stock of carbon in the atmosphere is 800 giga-tons, the issue makes sense …

One option, «carbon capture and valorization» (CCV) emerged recently. According to the perspective of industrial ecology, CCV considers carbon dioxide as a resource instead of a waste. (more)

Suren is head of the Group “Industrial ecology” of the University of Lausanne and authored the book “Vers une écologie industrielle”
