This talk will focus on how to introduce CO2 electrolysis into established industries and allow for their full-scale decarbonization. Following a brief introduction of state-of-the-art CO2 electrolysis, I will discuss several strategies for its stepwise deployment in chemical plants, without disrupting the existing industries and therefore not putting at risk the delivery of products that our society relies on. Proposed strategies will be illustrated with specific examples of chemical plants and techno-economic analyses for the integrated processes.
