Economic Feasibility for CO₂ Utilization Data Visualization Tool

Discover the economic feasibility and key cost drivers of producing chemical intermediates from CO2 and electricity across different conversion pathways.


The CO2 Reduction and Upgrading for e-Fuels Consortium (CO2RUe) develops and derisks advanced technologies that use renewable electricity to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) into e-fuels and commodity chemicals.

Millions of tons of CO2 are emitted annually from biorefineries and industrial sites across the United States. CO2RUe is working toward using renewable electricity to convert waste CO2 into climate-friendly e-fuels (short for electrofuels), which have dramatically smaller land, water, and greenhouse gas footprints compared to fossil fuels.

Download the CO2RUe fact sheet and learn about consortium goals to turn waste CO2 into a solution for decarbonizing fuels and chemicals.
