Abstract

The emissions of CO2gas have seen a dramatic increase in the last few decades. Fortunately, a new method for CO2utilization could help decrease the greenhouse effect. Since 1969 efforts have been made to convert CO2along with epoxides into polycarbonates, with recent advancements in the commercialization of the product. Polycarbonates are normally used as engineering plastics, but because of the decrease in its glass transition temperature, the application of the product and its market is different. This review of the mechanical and thermal properties and the different kinds of markets and application were reviewed. Alongside this review, this report focuses on all aspects that are important for the industrialization of this process. Through literature research, an economic and sustainability analysis was made. Through this analysis, the feasibility on the industrialization of the process was considered to be positive, with a payback period of about 7 years.
