Climate Neutrality by 2050: A Pathway for Industry

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 - 09:00 to 17:30
Atelier29, Rue Jacques de Lalaing 29, Brussels

The European CCUS Projects Network invites you to its first public event, an expert discussion on industrial transition options. In light of the European Union’s increased climate ambitions for 2030 and 2050, and the recent European Green Deal, an ambitious yet realistic strategy to decarbonise Europe’s industries while maintaining competitiveness is required.

This event aims to discuss different technology options (including CCUS, hydrogen, electrification and bioenergy) and policy frameworks. It will bring together top speakers from industry, the public sector and NGOs to present and debate different perspectives on the pathway to climate neutrality.

The event aims to encourage an interactive exchange of opinions between audience and speakers. For this reason, it is aimed primarily at an informed and involved audience. This event is free to attend.
