Heavy industry decarbonisation
Heavy industry decarbonisation refers to the process of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy-intensive sectors such as manufacturing, construction, and transportation. The aim is to transition these sectors to cleaner energy sources and adopt more sustainable production processes to mitigate climate change. The challenges include the high cost of transitioning to low-carbon technologies, the need for innovative solutions to decarbonize complex industrial processes, and ensuring competitiveness and job preservation during the transition. The status quo varies across industries and countries, with some making significant progress through policy incentives, technological advancements, and collaborations, while others are still in the early stages of implementing decarbonisation strategies.
