Abstract / short description:
The CO2 Research Center (CORC) is a mission-oriented center, is located at Aarhus University in Denmark, and is supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation in Denmark. The goal of CORC is to develop new science and early technology platforms for mitigating CO2-based climate change at scale. To achieve this goal, the Center is pursuing two distinctive and innovative approaches: 1) taking advantage of and integrating the best of chemical and of life sciences to develop new science and early innovative technologies for CO2 capture and conversion, and 2) using advanced systems modeling to take advantage of and integrate the ingenuity, experience, and vision of an unprecedented team of scientists, industrial partners, and policymakers to evaluate and shape the scope and design of research needed for developing new, effective and scalable technologies. The ambition of the Center is to be, within 10 years, recognized as the leader of or among the top three international science and technology centers for mitigating CO2-based climate change. The Center will develop novel science for CO2 capture and CO2 conversions for storage or utilization to replace fossil carbon and fossil fuel-intensive processes with sustainable, CO2-based technologies.
