Understanding change from within the four key material sectors and across their value chains

We are a European research team analysing decarbonisation in four industrial sectors: meat/dairy, paper, plastic and steel. Through an interdisciplinary approach we are studying the entire value chains of these sectors to understand the emissions and the possibilities of transition.


Sectors

For Europe to achieve its long-term climate objectives carbon-intensive industries have to reduce their emissions. While transport and energy sectors have received substantial attention in research, this is not the case for the so-called basic industries – meat/dairy, paper, plastic and steel. These are key to our daily lives and yet they are extremely carbon-reliant and hence in need of deep decarbonisation.
