CO2 is a representative greenhouse gas (GHG), and the Paris Agreement adopted by consensus on 12 December 2015 mandates worldwide reduction of CO2 emissions by 80% until the end of 2050 relative to that of 2013. In order to achieve a significant reduction in CO2, it is necessary to establish not only CO2 capture and storage (CCS), but also a wide range of technologies such as CO2 conversion to alcohol fuels such as methanol, utilization as chemical raw materials, and so on (CO2 capture and… Expand
