Scope The increasing global mean surface temperature could have drastic, long-term and irreversible impacts on our natural world, and could affect sustainable economic development and public welfare. Limiting this warming to the 1.5oC target from the Paris Agreement would require developing and integrating clean energy and CO2 management technologies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and decarbonize the energy and metal industries by 2050.

This symposium invites researchers, experts, stakeholders and interested groups from academia, industry, and government sectors for a focused discussion on industrial energy sustainability and CO2 management, including mature and emerging technologies for sustainable energy and manufacturing ecosystems, processes that improve energy efficiency, reduce the thermal and chemical intensity, minimize pollutant emissions, and reduce or eliminate industrial GHG emissions. Submissions that address a broad range of technology areas such as clean energy technologies, innovative beneficiation, smelting technologies, recycling and waste heat recovery, process intensification, as well as CO2 capture and conversion for industrial applications are encouraged.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Low-Carbon Fuels, Feedstocks and Energy Resources
• Low carbon fuels, feedstocks, and energy resources such as biomass, solar, wind, geothermal, nuclear and hydrogen.
• Development of fuel-flexible processes

Industrial Electrification
• Emerging technologies, devices and materials for clean energy harvesting, conversion, storage, and distribution (e.g., thermo-electric, electrolysis).
• Electrification of industrial process heat and electrified production of energy carriers (e.g., hydrogen, ammonia)

Energy Efficiency
• Energy efficient technologies and efficiency improvements for minerals, metals & materials processing
• Smart manufacturing for optimized process control and efficiency
• System integration and thermal integration of process heat, waste heat recovery, and other technologies for industrial energy efficiency

Materials and Processing
• Materials extraction and processing strategies for enhancing energy efficiencies in batteries, supercapacitors, and energy efficient cells production.
• Methodologies for optimizing energy materials production, waste reduction and emissions mitigation, including chemicals recovery and reuse.
• 'Smart cool materials' for urban heat island mitigation (such as cool roof infrared reflecting material, low-temperature heat absorbers, etc.)

Carbon Capture and Conversion
• Emerging processes, techniques and experiences in CO2 capture, conversion/ upgrade, and sequestration
• CO2 and other GHG reduction metallurgy in ferrous (iron & steel making and forming), non-ferrous and reactive metals including critical rare-earth metals.

Process Modelling and Intensification
• Thermodynamics and modelling for sustainable metallurgical processes
• Theory and simulation in energy harvesting, conversion, and storage
• Design, operation, and optimization of processes for energy generation, storage, recovery, and co-generation, as well as CO2 capture and conversion with industrial relevance.

Sustainability Analysis
• Scale-up, stability, techno-economic evaluation and life-cycle analysis of energy technologies and improvement of existing energy-intensive processes
• Circular economy and resource efficiency modeling to optimize transport and distribution logistics for material supply chains.
• Foundational industry (metals-alloys, chemicals, refractories, cement) and energy economy and role of mineral extraction including low carbon intensive processes.
• The role of energy education and regulation in energy and materials sustainability
