Green Deal Webinar - Areas 3,7 : Circular Economy & Ecosystems and Biodiversity
About the Event
A presentation of the Green Deal Call Topics related to Areas 3 and 7
Energy-intensive industries, particularly steel, chemicals and cement, are an essential part of Europe’s economy and supply critical value chains. However, they also account for 20% of the EU’s greenhouse-gas emissions, making their decarbonisation and modernisation a top priority. Following the recommendations of the High-Level Expert Group on Energy-Intensive Industries, the actions under this area support switching to alternative, climate-neutral energy and feedstock sources. Furthermore, in line with the EU’s new industrial strategy, they support adopting more circular product designs, given that only 12% of the materials used by industry come from recycling. Supportive policy measures, helping consumers to make more informed choices, are likewise covered.
The area comprises the following topics:
-LC-GD-3-1-2020: Closing the industrial carbon cycle to combat climate change- Industrial feasibility of catalytic routes for sustainable alternatives to fossil resources
-LC-GD-3-2-2020 Demonstration of systemic solutions for the territorial deployment of the circular economy
-LC-GD-7-1-2020: Restoring biodiversity and ecosystem services
