Industrial Decarbonization

The Challenge

The industrial sector is progressively becoming the primary source of CO2 emissions, and its decarbonization is critical to limiting the global temperature increase. Three industries – iron and steel, non-metallic minerals (cement, glass, lime), and chemical industries – are responsible for 70 percent of all direct industrial CO2 emissions today. Innovation will be key to decarbonize the industry, particularly in high temperature heat applications.
