Lars J Nilsson (ULUND), Ernst Worrell (UU) and Mariësse van Sluisveld (PBL) from REINVENT have attended the LIFE platform meeting on climate change mitigation in energy intensive industries in Utrecht, the Netherlands (26-27 September 2018).

The meeting is hosted by LIFE OPTIMELT (http://lifeoptimelt.com/announcement.htm), a project that is recovering waste heat in glass manufacturing, and is organised in cooperation with the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and the European Commission's Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA).

The two-day gathering will include plenary sessions on the policy context, industry commitments and technological solutions; workshops; a poster session; and field visits to the OPTIMELT project at the Libbey Leerdam glassware factory and Tata Steel’s Horizon 2020 project, HIsarna, both in the Netherlands.
