A recap and video of this event is available here.


Heavy industry, including steel, cement, and chemical manufacturing account for approximately 30 percent of global carbon emissions. These sectors have immense heat and energy requirements and generate emissions from chemical reactions inherent in their manufacturing processes, making them notoriously difficult to decarbonize. But, with demand for these industries projected to grow in the coming decades at the same time that scientists say that we must reach net zero, it is essential to find new approaches to cutting emissions from these industries. Please join us for the fifth installment of the Innovating Out of the Climate Crisis webinar series focused on hard to abate sectors, the role they play in global economics, and the policy and technological developments needed to facilitate climate-friendly manufacturing.

Moderated by ASP’s Director of Climate Programs, Jessica Olcott Yllemo, panelists include:
