REINVENT workshop: Understanding Innovation Dynamics for Low-Carbon Transitions in Resource-Intensive Industries
It will take place in Brussels, involving REINVENTERs, policy-makers and industry stakeholders. This workshops connects to the innovation case studies we are currently conducting, across sectors and their value chains.
REINVENT’s coordinator Lars J Nilsson moderated the panel debate titled ‘Lowering the climate impact of plastic materials’, held at Lund University and organised by EIT Climate-KIC. The video from this event is available here.
The REINVENT team from the Wuppertal Institute, accompanied by representatives of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MWIDE), will visit the steel plant by ThyssenKrupp in Duisburg on May 14th. At the Duisburg site, the entire steel production process is carried out - from pig iron and crude steel to the rolling mill and further processing steps. The focus of the visit is to gain an overview of the whole process, focussing on certain steps of the value chain like rolling and casting processes. Moreover, we want to look ahead by getting insights into the state of low-carbon technologies - like the project „Carbon2Chem“ which aims to use emissions from steel production as raw material for chemicals.
Towards fossil-free steel. Stefan Lechtenböhmer takes part in the panel discussion at the European Parliament
On 21st February, HYBRIT (Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology), a joint-venture between SSAB, LKAB, and Vattenfall will celebrate its official launch in the European Parliament with a presentation of its breakthrough project.
Stefan Lechtenböhmer from REINVENT will participate in the panel discussion that is part of the event.
