Abstract

Various applications using carbon dioxide (CO) have developed within the last decade and, if current trends continue, the CO technology platform could emerge as the most commonly used solvent in the twenty-first century. An environmentally friendly platform that is wrapped in a successful business format with apparent implications for people and their communities is most likely to endure. Does the CO technology platform meet the criteria for becoming a sustainable enterprise? Utilizing CO as an alternative solvent in conventional processes has the potential to favorably impact the environment and our communities. There are, however, several barriers to adopting CO-based applications. Several concepts as well as obstacles to adopting the carbon dioxide technology platform are highlighted in this chapter.
