Series Sustainable energy strategies
Summary Offering practical treatment strategies for CO2 emission generated from various energy-related sources, CO2 Capture, Utilization, and Sequestration Strategies emphasizes carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS) with special focus on methods for each component of the strategy. While other books mostly focus on CCS strategy for CO2, this book details the technologies available for utilization of CO2, showing how it can be a valuable renewable source for chemicals, materials, fuels, and power instead of a waste material damaging the environment. Highlights current and potential future commercially viable CCUS strategies Discusses applications for direct and the more complex indirect utilization of CO2 streams Examines viability of the mineral carbonation process and biological treatments to convert CO2 into useful biochemicals, biomaterials, and biofuels Explores heterogeneous catalysis for thermal and electrochemical conversion and solar energy-based thermal, photo-thermal, and photocatalytic conversion of CO2 Presents the rapidly growing concept of plasma-activated catalysis for CO2 conversion CO2 Capture, Utilization, and Sequestration Strategies is a valuable reference for researchers in academia, industry, and government organizations seeking a guide to effective CCUS processes, technologies, and applications

Notes Yatish T. Shah received his B.Sc in chemical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA, and MS and Sc.D in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA. He has more than 40 years of academic and industrial experience in energy-related areas. He was chairman of the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA; dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, and Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA; chief research officer at Clemson University, South Carolina, USA; and provost at Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, USA, the University of Central Missouri, Warrensburg, USA, and Norfolk State University, Virginia, USA. He was also a visiting scholar at University of Cambridge, UK, and a visiting professor at the University of California, Berkley, USA, and Institut für Technische Chemie I der Universitt̃ Erlangen, Nürnberg, Germany. Dr. Shah has previously written nine books related to energy, six of which are under "Sustainable Energy Strategies" book series by Taylor & Francis of which he is the editor. He has also published more than 250 refereed reviews, book chapters, and research technical publications in the areas of energy, environment, and reaction engineering. He is an active consultant to numerous industries and government organizations in the energy areas
