The Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) and bp are pleased to invite you to a workshop on 'How India's hard-to-abate industrial sector can go net zero: Marginal abatement cost curves of carbon mitigation technologies' on 12 October 2023, 0930 - 1300 IST at Juniper Hall, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
Industrial outputs are an essential component of any economy. In the Indian context, especially, they play a vital role in producing key commodities that are building blocks for infrastructure, trade and employment. However, each of these industries uses carbon as an integral part of their energy and process needs. Intermediary processes in steel, iron and cement manufacturing result in emissions that are hard to mitigate.
The session will see the launch of our roadmap to decarbonise these industries. Our study also analyses key carbon mitigation technologies and evaluates their techno-economic feasibility for decarbonising legacy and upcoming production capacities. The workshop will bring together key stakeholders from industry, academia and policy to deliberate on strategies for cost-effective, deep decarbonisation of these industries to achieve India’s climate ambitions.
