Carbon-Neutral Researcher Supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) has many advantages over conventional organic solvents, such as high diffusivity, low interfacial tension, and no need for solvent drying, and is expected to be applied to various processes. Furthermore, from the perspective of CCUS (carbon capture, utilization, and storage), which has been attracting attention in recent years, the supercritical CO2 process is a powerful methodology that contributes to carbon neutrality.
