Energy-intensive industries industrial symbiosis Carbon neutrality
Project description
In recent years many studies have been published aiming to gain a better understanding of potential pathways towards carbon neutrality of various end-use sectors in general and Energy Intensive Industries in particular. But previous studies have to a large extent focused on carbon-neutrality pathways for individual sectors in isolation, based on generic processes assumptions. In this project also cross-sectoral reduction potential through industrial symbiosis is studied as a successful transformation of Energy Intensive Industries will play a pivotal role if the EU Green Deal strategy. To prove successful, options must be assessed from an environmental and economic point of view.
