CO2 Industry Overview
Provide an overview of the North American Merchant CO2 Business providing a historical, current, and future perspective with a five-year growth forecast. Major topics include Merchant CO2 demand by major market application and trends driving growth, the supply chain from crude molecule source to end-use markets, evolving capacity shares by company and source type, supply-demand balance, and ongoing issues and trends that impact the CO2 business.
Back to the Basics: Carbon Credits
Carbon credits are a mechanism used to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions by putting a price on the carbon footprint of an individual or company. A carbon credit represents one tonne of carbon dioxide or equivalent greenhouse gases that have been avoided or removed from the atmosphere. These credits can be traded on a carbon market, allowing entities with a high carbon footprint to purchase credits from those who have reduced their carbon emissions. The goal of this system is to incentivize companies and individuals to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to mitigate climate change. Carbon credits can be generated through a variety of activities such as renewable energy projects, energy efficiency measures, and reforestation efforts. While the carbon credit system has its critics, it is a widely used and growing mechanism for addressing the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In this session Beverage Technologists and their suppliers will gain a deeper understanding of why carbon markets impact their carbon dioxide supplies, as well as the types of carbon markets that exist. Lastly, attendees will learn about the impact of recent legislation, the Inflation Reduction Act on the carbon market.
Sequestration: A Sustainable Carbon Solution and Implications to CO2 Supply/Demand
Navigator CO2 Ventures
Exec Director Carbon Utilization
CO2 supply comes from primarily 3 sources: ethanol plants, ammonia plants, and underground sources. Two of those sources are in the middle of proposed CO2 sequestration networks which could pull that supply away from the food/bev, welding, and wastewater treatment plants. How will food and beverage companies get their CO2 in the future vs. how they procure it now? What implications does the IRA/LCFS have on CO2 pricing? Right now in a meeting room on the top floor of a company, sustainability employees are discussing how to reduce their CO2 footprint. At the very same time, procurement employees in a meeting room on the bottom floor are having a meeting discussing how they can't get enough CO2 to their plants to operate reliably. This presentation will break down this conundrum and offer insights in how to procure CO2 within the new sequestration environment.
