Decarbonisation of Industries

Overview

Industrial companies are under growing pressure from consumers and regulators to decarbonise their processes. Emissions from the industry sector are also typically very difficult to abate as, in many cases, traditional electrification is not possible.

Industrial Emissions in the EU by Sub-sector

The production of cement, iron, steel, or ammonia, which requires high temperatures, can be decarbonised by replacing fossil fuels with sustainable alternatives. Circular economy initiatives will also be key to decarbonise sub-sectors like paper, food, beverages, and waste management.

On Focus Areas

Green Hydrogen

Green hydrogen is a key decarbonisation technology for sectors that are difficult to electrify, such as cement and steel production. It can also be used as transportation fuel and feedstock. We currently focus on blending green hydrogen with traditional natural gas. But our long-term goal is to enable fully green hydrogen-powered industrial plant.

Biomethane Platforms

Biomethane represents a straightforward decarbonised alternative to conventional natural gas. We develop and upgrade biomethane production facilities that allow customers connected to the gas network to use this energy source without additional investments in gas transportation, distribution, or consumption infrastructure.

Energy Efficiency Infrastructure

Energy efficiency projects are important for industrials to decarbonise. We look to invest in integrated energy efficiency projects that include battery management systems, heating, insulation, and re-lamping. These projects provide both cost saving and decarbonisation solutions to industrials.
