Carbon Dioxide Conversion
Advanced technologies for CO2 Capture and Utilisation
Climate change is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. This carbon overload is caused mainly when we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas or cut down and burn forests. Carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration play an essential role in reducing CO2 emissions. From the economic point of view, CO2 is an inexpensive C1 feedstock, making it very attractive to produce chemicals and fuels. Much research has been conducted to find both thermochemical and electrochemical routes to convert CO2 into valuable products.
We help you with:
- Efficient CO2 capture from the air
- Exploring CO2 conversion by thermochemical and electrochemical routes.
Direct air capture
Direct air capture (DAC) is essential in addressing climate change and shaping a sustainable future.
At Avantium R&D Solutions, we are a leading provider of DAC units. Our units enable you to test 8 adsorbent materials at the same time. This allows you to accelerate your testing and select the best material.
Together, we can accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy and create a lasting positive impact on the environment.
CO2 conversion technologies
We offer both, thermochemical and electrochemical methods to investigate CO2 conversion reactions. Our Flowrence technology is very well suited to research thermochemical CO2 conversion reactions.

Volta Technology for electrochemical CO2 conversion
Our Volta Technology, Avantium’s carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) solution, unlocks CO2 as a new carbon source for the chemicals and the plastics industry, enables cleaner processes through its use of electrons as reagents and allows industrial parties to reduce their CO2 emissions. Through the electrochemical conversion of CO2, Avantium can produce formic acid and oxalic acid, as well as derivatives including glycolic acid. These high-value chemicals have a wide range of applications, including the carbon-negative polymer PLGA (polylactic-co-glycolic acid).
By not only using up CO2 that would otherwise contribute to global warming, but also making products that would traditionally be made from fossil carbon, Volta Technology means we can set our sights on a circular future sooner.
