Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in Carbon Dioxide Industry

The carbon dioxide Industry is a crucial tool for combating the issue of global warming brought on by high carbon dioxide emissions. To resolve the conflict between environmental concerns and low-carbon economic development, many industries have implemented carbon markets. The oil and gas industry uses a lot of carbon dioxide gas for improved oil recovery. Utilizing this gas facilitates oil flow and lowers the viscosity of the produced oil.

The demand for carbon dioxide has increased globally due to increased investments in the development of cutting-edge technology related to enhanced oil recovery and Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS). The current market trends for improved oil recovery in many nations point to a sharp increase in the number of carbon dioxide-enhanced oil recovery projects worldwide in the upcoming years. As carbon dioxide is used in numerous medical applications, including temporary respiratory stimulation, the growing medical industry is predicted to benefit market growth.

ESG Trends

The investment community is paying attention to new potential to employ carbon dioxide in the development of goods and services because they are interested in reducing climate change as well as other objectives including technical leadership and promoting a circular economy. To increase both CO2 market share and revenue, the industry leaders are attempting to improve the markets by utilizing more "green-related" CO2 applications. Furthermore, many of the recent advancements in industry fundamentally serve to replace applications of toxic solvents and chemicals with new CO2 businesses.

Supercritical extraction (the removal of flavorings, essential oils, and of course caffeine from coffee and tea), dry cleaning, and other processes use CO2 as a solvent. The most significant use of carbon dioxide, however, is still to increase the yield of fossil fuels. Additionally, CO2 in gaseous form can be used to promote plant development in greenhouses which can result in plants becoming more drought- resistant as plants use water more efficiently under higher CO2 levels. Carbon dioxide use can provide climate benefits where the application is scalable as it uses low-carbon energy and displaces a product with higher life-cycle emissions which covers the environmental part.

ESG Challenges

Low liquidity, restricted financing, insufficient risk-management services, and constrained data availability characterize the market. Another significant obstacle in the market is the high expense of extracting, liquefying, and transporting the gas. Transporting carbon dioxide in solid form is neither practical nor cost-effective because it uses more energy than other options. Pipelines, however, are the profitable route of transportation for larger volumes of carbon dioxide. It takes a lot of electrical energy to liquefy carbon dioxide for ship transport and compress it for pipeline transmission.

Globally, government organizations have developed several standards for the safe transportation and storage of carbon dioxide. The price of transportation is also impacted by these regulations. The high cost of transportation is anticipated to have an impact on the manufacturers' profit margins and restrain market expansion. So, these regulations pose policy and legal risk to these industries. The strategic creation of a successful, extensive voluntary carbon market would be necessary to satisfy all these objectives.

Growth of the Carbon Dioxide Market

The carbon dioxide market size was USD 3.68 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3% from 2022-2030. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is being used more and more for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), and its use in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries is expected to skyrocket throughout the projected period. The market is growing because of increased deployment of improved oil recovery technology due to depleting oil supplies and increasing dependence on crude oil imports across various regions, particularly in Asia Pacific.

To increase the shelf life of food goods, modified atmospheric packaging (MAP) frequently uses carbon dioxide. Additionally, cryogenic freezing systems, as compared to mechanical refrigeration systems, offer greater temperature flexibility. Soon, these variables are also anticipated to have a substantial impact on the use of CO2 in food and beverage applications.
