Webinar: Reducing Industrial Carbon Emissions
This event was supported by Horizon Results Booster
The EU recently set unprecedented goals in terms of reducing emissions - by 55% by 2030 and climate neutrality by 2050. Solutions such as carbon capture, utilisation and storage, or CCUS, involve capturing CO2 from industrial plants or installations, transporting it to designated sites and injecting it into geological formations, making it extremely relevant to face this ambitious but necessary challenge.
This webinar shared some of the latest advances in CCUS. The research project cluster, Better Carbon Capture for Industrial Emissions, is formed of three EU-funded projects: CLEANKER, REALISE CCUS and C4U.
These projects are advancing state-of-the-art technology for reducing emissions from industrial plants, directly focussing on three sectors - cement, refineries and steel.
Experts from these EU-backed projects will showcase technological approaches, financial feasibility, and how their approaches in implementing CCUS have shown up to 90% reduction in CO2 emissions in certain plants. Policy aspects that have an effect on the implementation of CCUS will also be discussed.
This webinar was open to all but of specific interest to the following sectors:
- Iron and steel, oil refining, cement production
- Policy makers and actors interested in environmental policies for industry
- Researchers working on CCUS technologies
- Other heavy industry representatives
