Singh, Udayan; Colosi, Lisa M. (2021): The case for estimating carbon return on investment (CROI) for CCUS platforms

Singh, Udayan; Colosi, Lisa M. (2021): The case for estimating carbon return on investment (CROI) for CCUS platforms. In Applied Energy 285, p. 116394. DOI: 10.1016/j.apenergy.2020.116394.

"We posit that widespread, uniform application of a standardized ratio metric, carbon return on investment (CROI), will improve the usefulness of LCA to articulate true CO2 sequestration by candidate CCUS platforms."

Garcia-Garcia, Guillermo; et al. (2020): Analytical Review of Life-Cycle Environmental Impacts of Carbon Capture and Utilization Technologies

Garcia-Garcia, Guillermo; Fernandez, Marta Cruz; Armstrong, Katy; Woolass, Steven; Styring, Peter (2020): Analytical Review of Life-Cycle Environmental Impacts of Carbon Capture and Utilization Technologies. In Chemsuschem. DOI: 10.1002/cssc.202002126.

"To guarantee that CCU processes have environmental advantages over conventional production processes, thorough and systematic environmental impact analyses must be performed. Life‐Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a robust methodology that can be used to fulfil this aim. In this context, this article aims to review the life‐cycle environmental impacts of several CCU processes, focusing on the production of methanol, methane, dimethyl ether, dimethyl carbonate, propane and propene."
