Agora Studio: Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector
Production of cement, steel, ammonia, and ethylene contribute to nearly half of greenhouse gases in the industrial sector. But new technologies such as electrification of heat, biomass as fuel or feedstock, hydrogen production, and CCS are just some of solutions to reduce industry’s carbon footprint. What is the progress of these technologies and how are they being implemented? Is cost a barrier and what is a realistic timetable to achieve as close to net zero emissions as possible? Speakers Emre Gençer, Research Scientist, MIT Energy Initiative Sebastian Scholz, Program Manager, Hydrogen Transformation, thyssenkrupp Steel Arne Stecher, Business Development Manager, Head of Decarbonization, Holcim Deutschland GmbH Chair Alex Klaessig, Director, Hydrogen and Renewable Gas Forum, IHS Markit
