Globally, materials industry is responsible for significant amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. For example, four materials are responsible for over 70% of total industrial CO2 emissions – steel, cement, chemicals, and aluminum. Under a business as usual scenario, the demand for these materials is expected to increase over the coming years. Hence, successfully decarbonizing the materials industry is critical to solving the climate crisis. This presentation will frame the emerging and transformative technologies pathways needed to achieve net-zero GHG emissions in the U.S. Materials Industry by 2050. The technology pillars discussed during this presentation will include energy efficiency, electrification, fuel switching to low-carbon fuels and access to the low-carbon energy sources. The topics covered during the webinar will be scoping in nature and will highlight the technology needs and opportunities, while maintaining and enhancing the competitiveness of U.S. industry.
