Australia is a trade-exposed carbon intensive economy that must move towards industrial efficiency and rapid decarbonisation, drastically challenging existing operations and models. Industries and businesses require clarity and confidence to invest in the sustainable technologies, net zero emissions industries of the future, drive innovation and make changes to existing operations and processes.
This will be a landmark event for commercial Australia as industries & businesses are under increasing pressure from customers and investors to develop meaningful responses to the climate crisis and accelerate decarbonisation pathways. The event has been designed as a chance to discuss developments & opportunities to advance decarbonisation and will focus on industries including aluminium, ammonia, building materials, cement, ethylene, manufacturing, mining, oil & gas, steel, shipping & transport operations.

We will look at government policy, developments, key drivers, case studies, the new technologies and increasing opportunities they provide to reduce Co2 emissions to almost zero using energy-efficiency improvements, increased renewable-energy, electrification of heat, the use of hydrogen and biomass as feedstock or fuel, and carbon capture storage.
