In January, the journal Chemie Ingenieur Technik published a special issue on the subject of "Power-to-x":

"Chemistry is the central science to enable the transformation of the energy system," it says in the editorial by CEC director Walter Leitner, Rüdiger Eichel (FZ Jülich) and Kurt Wagemann (DECHEMA). After all, not only do we need to reduce the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere, we now need negative emissions to keep the earth's surface temperature below 2 degrees. Using electricity from renewable sources to produce chemicals or energy carriers from CO2 is therefore essential for climate protection
