Chemicals’ complex route to green

Electrification of the energy-intensive chemicals sector is not always possible so finding alternative low-carbon processes is climbing the industry's agenda

Roll-out of renewable energy projects is hampering the chemical sector’s desire to procure more clean energy

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE Many alternative low-carbon processes for the chemical industry are still a long way from commercialisation

NECESSARY COMPONENT Carbon capture, utilisation and storage technologies will be required to help reach decarbonisation targets

KEY QUOTE We need to fundamentally change the way we produce ...
