Transforming Carbon: How Can We Best Utilise Carbon as a High-Value Waste Stream?

Key Focus Area:

Green Technology & Decarbonisation

For too long, carbon dioxide has been perceived as a waste product, with detrimental effects on the planet. However, with the increasing urgency to reduce carbon emissions, it is imperative to shift our perception and explore how carbon dioxide can be harnessed as a high-value waste stream. By unlocking the potential of the carbon value chain, we can create new opportunities for sustainable and innovative solutions, leading us towards a more resilient future.

Desired Outcome
Solution spaces encompass all products that utilize carbon as a raw material. Successful solutions must be suited to Singapore’s available resources and economic model.
Successful solutions should:
– Generate high value uses without massive carbon imports
– Overcome any concerns with quality, purity, or sufficient and consistent supply
– Be aligned with ship workflows and infrastructure
