This study assesses a theoretical CO₂ demand in Germany for a broad spectrum of 55 carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) pathways.

By combining extrapolated production quantities with pathway-specific CO₂ conversion factors, a range of potential CO₂ consumption per CCU pathway is estimated for 2030. Subsequently, an aggregated CO₂ consumption potential is compared to CO₂ supply potentials, especially, but not limited to CO₂ from biogenic sources.


🟢 The theoretical CO₂ demand of the considered CCU pathways amounts to about 234–423 Mt CO2 p.a. in 2030 including energy carriers representing the largest share of more than 75%.
