Monday, 18 October, from 15:00 to 16:30 The EU steel industry currently accounts for 221 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually, which is 5.7% of total EU emissions. In the last 30 years emissions have been reduced by 26% through energy efficiency improvements and higher recycling rates, however achieving climate-neutrality in the next 30 years requires radical changes in the way steel is produced: a higher level of circular economy and the integration of renewable energy sources...

Thursday, 14 October, from 09:00 to 10:30 Regions with industrial hubs linked to ports have the potential to become the nerve centres for the scale-up of green hydrogen, as nearly 80% the hydrogen produced today is used as a feedstock for the refining and chemical industries that are concentrated in coastal industrial zones. Not only are these energy intensive sectors, but they also extensively use fossil-fuel-based hydrogen in their processes. Encouraging these hubs to shift to green... Read more
