In the run-up there had been 20 submissions for the «Best CO2 Utilisation 2019” prize, which the nova-Institut is awarding for the first time. The recycling of carbon dioxide plays a central role here. Every idea has the claim of being able to be implemented industrially in the long term. This shows how important the topic has become in the meantime and how active numerous companies have already become in this field, according to Michael Carus, CEO of the nova-Institut.
Nordic Blue Crude, a company from Norway, was in second place. It succeeded in producing synthetic crude from CO2 as well as renewable power and water. The crude is usable as diesel or kerosene and can be refined to gasoline. In third place was b.fab from Germany, which was honored for a process technology to efficiently convert CO2, water and renewable energy into value-added chemicals such as lactic acid.
