Fossil feedstock is the main cause of climate change. In the realm of chemistry and materials, defossilisation is imperative to meet both the climate targets and the continuous demand for embedded carbon – the carbon bound in the molecules. This can only be achieved by utilising renewable carbon sources from biomass, direct CO2 utilisation or recycling. The concept of renewable carbon establishes the foundation for a future chemistry and materials sector that can be circular and sustainable. Simultaneously, the concept helps to reduce the dependence on imported fossil feedstocks like crude oil and natural gas. To successfully execute this transformation towards renewable carbon use, political backing is essential. The RCI manifesto outlines seven core recommendations directed towards the next European Commission, which aim at translating this vision into reality.

Key messages of the manifesto

  1. Ensure that carbon embedded in chemicals and materials is given more political attention as an important factor for material-related emissions. Renewable carbon derived from biomass, direct CO2 utilisation, and recycling must become a guiding principle for policies and targets regulating chemicals and materials.
  2. Make a stepwise phaseout of fossil carbon from below the ground for chemicals and materials by 2050 an explicit objective.
  3. Enshrine the 20% target of non-fossil carbon in chemicals and plastics by 2030 from the Sustainable Carbon Cycles Communication in binding legislation and  ensure implementation through concrete political action.
  4. Establish a Carbon Management Regulation to incentivise companies to replace fossil carbon from below the ground with renewable alternatives.
  5. Promote bio- and CO2-based[1] or -attributed content in parallel to recycled content in product-related regulation.
  6. Deploy carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) as a key strategic net-zero technology to supply sustainable and circular carbon.
  7. Support the transformation of existing chemical infrastructure from fossil to renewable carbon and support the transformation of biofuels plants into chemical suppliers without discriminating against existing production from renewable feedstock (including primary biomass).

[1] The use of the term CCU generally refers to the utilisation of carbon dioxide (CO2), but can also include industrial carbon monoxide (CO) sources prior to flaring or other conversions to CO2 before release to the atmosphere. In the US, CO2 and CO are grouped together as “carbon oxides” for purposes of Section 45Q CCUS tax credits. In this report, “CO2 utilisation” is meant to also include other carbon oxides.

The opinions expressed in this position paper may not reflect the exact individual policies and views of all RCI members.

The EU Green Deal contained a glaring omission in failing to begin to transition the 93% of chemicals and related materials being made from virgin fossil feedstock to renewable (recycled, CO/CO2 based and bio) carbon. By reusing above ground carbon; ending the harmful and wasteful process of incinerating or exporting waste; and encouraging carbon capture and utilisation we can shift to a circular use of carbon that brings closer the day we leave fossil oil and gas resources in the ground and achieve net zero. It is time for the European Commission to recognise the policy gap and act.

We need more political and legal framework support to drive chemistry and plastics to renewable and circular resources.
We need both: Biobased and recycled carbon - these are brothers and sisters in sustainable development.

What is missing here - and really needs to be included to find acceptance and smarter implementation:
1. Biobased carbon must be preferably used in longlife / durable / recyclabe applications to enable carbon storage structures lasting for decades
2. Product design: Renewable carbon in general shall be used in application which are not wasteful single-use. Such applications need to be phased out and shall not be the home of renewable carbon use to avoid greenwashing claims

Strong thinking. We support.

CO2 is a carbon source for industrial carbons. Industrial carbons can be extracted from CO2 using a net carbon intensity reduction process. We've proven it. Carbon black can be produced from CO2, instead of from burning fossil fuels. Synthetic graphite can be produced from CO2 instead of from petroleum needle coke. We've proven it.

We support your initiative. CO2 is an inherent byproduct in key human-built environment materials production (cement, steel, alcohol 🙂 We have proven industrial carbon can be harvested from CO2. Fossil carbons do not need to be used for carbon black, synthetic graphite, carbon for steelmaking, The emissions from cement production can be converted into solid carbon which then serve as a replacement aggregate in the concrete. Also proven.

We support your initiative. Thank you.

Strangely missing is The Value of Soil Carbon Capture Sequestration (SCCS) for Carbon Negative Solutions (Offering Low Carbon Intensity CI score materials)
Soil Carbon Capture Sequestration is delivering on solutions to improve soil health while sequestering carbon and improving the water holding capacity of soil. We can offer incentives in agriculture and the impact it has on agricultural economics and security of the food supply chain. These types of solutions can have an influence in meeting a net negative carbon economy using agriculture. Taking advantage of the power of soil carbon storage can offer diverse solutions towards a common goal of carbon emission reductions while also serving to improve food security and supply and water management.

Politics is about negotiating and politicians have a state of mind everything is negotiable. Think not nature is. Forces like gravity, the power of life and thermodynamics of heat by CO2 don't negotiate but follow their physical predisposition (not 'laws' as this would suggest they can be changed). Please accept that and act accordingly.

44 Antila Heli Chempolis Oy Finland

This manifesto is excellent.

In addition I would like to emphasise biomasses which have captured carbon in short term before usage. For example in agriculture straws store carbon in a few months. If this carbon can be stored and used in biomaterials, -chemicals etc. this has more powerful impact to climate than forest based carbon which has been stored during tens of years. So time dimension would be important even though I understadnd that it is difficult to take into account.
