Creating Value from CO2 | Marrakech Climate Change Conference - November 2016 | IISD/ENV Coverage | IISD Reporting Services | International Institute for Sustainable Development

On Thursday, 10 November 2016, the event “Creating Value from CO2” took place at the Marrakech Conference on Climate Change (COP22).

This video showcases operations in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait that are utilizing captured CO2 as a complementary approach to carbon storage. Highlighted strategies include: a purification plant, enhanced methanol production, and a focus on ensuring that CO2-based products use existing, not newly-created sources. This side event was organized by the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Produced by Teya Penniman and filmed/edited by Nemo Allen.
