Delavnica - STOA

Več podrobnosti

This event will discuss in depth new and emerging possibilities for closing the carbon cycle through substitution of fossil fuels, especially with reference to carbon-intensive industries, exploring as well the need for further research in the different areas. It will feature two keynote speeches that will address the regional dimension and the perspective of the European Commission for the decarbonisation of European industry. Various experts will analyse the economic feasibility of different options for substituting fossil fuels and for reducing carbon emissions in the steel industry, as well as the possibility of using the existing gas infrastructure for transporting hydrogen. Representatives of the industry, environmental organisations, workers' unions and academia will make brief interventions to start the subsequent discussions. With this event, STOA aims to contribute to the political debate deriving from new scientific and technological developments. Based on the specific findings, the event will also serve to explore policy options for contributing to the transition to a carbon-neutral EU economy by 2050.
