Industry is a key contributor to economic growth and prosperity, and has been the primary engine of economic development over the last century. It is also a leading global source of greenhouse gases. The International Energy Agency estimates that, to meet global GHG reduction goals, emission reductions of 60-80% will be necessary. Industry is also an important source of innovation and rich with mitigation opportunities: resource efficiency (e.g. energy, materials, water); reducing process emissions of non-CO2 GHGs; industrial ecology; supply chain logistics and geography; manufacturing efficiency; CO2 capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS); and enhanced use of renewables are just some of the areas in which there is great potential for paradigm-shifting progress.
You are invited to submit your proposal here for industry outside of the contest period. We seek innovative, well-described, actionable solutions that will enable continued global economic growth while achieving major emission reductions in the industrial sector over the course of the next decades. Workspace proposals will not be evaluated until a new contest on this topic opens. This is a space to try out new ideas, share your work, connect with other members and recruit collaborators, and invite a global community to review and help develop your proposal.
