High ambitions for radical GHG mitigation in the industrial sector
In connection to the 28th IETS TCP ExCo meeting in Paris (May 14-15) a well attended workshop on national roadmaps for industry was organized together with French stakeholders.
Presentations from IETS member countries and Italy showed very clearly high ambitions for radical GHG mitigation in the industrial sector. Some technologies were highlighted in several of the presentations, especially CCSU, electrification, biomass usage and biorefineries, as well as clustering of industries, although the views on the importance of them were different. However, CCSU, especially CCS, is debated in some countries as there is a question about the sustainability and risks.
