IN4climate.NRW – creating innovations for a decarbonised industry

As part of the digital conference “Industrial Efficiency – Decarbonise Industry!” organised by the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (eceee), IN4climate.NRW invited participants to attend a side event to discuss the importance of the scientific community, business, and policy makers working together to achieve a climate-neutral future for industry.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our times. Action taken by industry to protect the climate has a critical role to play. As we transition to a climate-neutral future for the industrial sector, new innovative processes, strategies and products must be developed that will help to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

From its position as a state-based initiative, IN4climate.NRW offers a platform for dialogue and collaboration where experts from the worlds of industry, science and politics come together to work on solutions for the energy-intensive primary sector in North Rhine-Westphalia. Working groups focusing on topics such as hydrogen, the circular economy, heating, policy frameworks and the CO2 economy discuss production processes and value chains and develop solutions for a climate-neutral approach. The initiative’s work is supported and overseen by the scientific competence centre SCI4climate.NRW.

By giving an insight into the practical cross-sectoral work being carried out to achieve the shared objective, IN4climate.NRW’s event complemented the main programme of the Industrial Efficiency conference, which has a largely scientific focus. Representatives of companies operating around the world joined international agencies to report on developments and discuss them with the scientific community.
