LIFE platform meeting on climate change mitigation in energy intensive industries

26-27 September 2018 in Utrecht, Netherlands

The European Union has set ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2020, 2030 and 2050, in response to global efforts spearheaded by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), its Kyoto Protocol and the recent Paris Agreement.

Energy intensive industries play a critical role in achieving these targets. This LIFE platform meeting will bring together beneficiaries of the LIFE programme and other EU funding mechanisms, policymakers and stakeholders to discuss how energy intensive industries can contribute to realising the EU roadmap to eventual decarbonisation. The discussions and networking will facilitate exchange of good practices and synergies between projects that are designed to increase energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions, in particular in the cement, ceramic, glass, steel and metal industries.

The meeting is hosted by LIFE OPTIMELT, 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.
