The Webinar “Decarbonisation pathways related to indirect emissions in the Ceramic Industry, under the Green Deal”, hosted by the European Parliament Ceramics Forum (EPCF) and Cerame-Unie (CU), took place on Tuesday 30 June, from 10:00-11:30, through the online platform ZOOM and had an attendance of more than 120 participants.  

 

Cerame-Unie is currently updating the 2012 Roadmap towards 2050. In that context, the Webinar aimed to give an overview of where the Ceramic Industry stands in terms of decarbonisation pathways and how research & innovation, emerging technologies, more particularly those implying further electrification, can support and fuel this transformation. In addition to showcasing three ongoing research projects relying on electricity, the webinar will also address economic conditions related to the transition towards decarbonisation in the context of the ETS State Aid Guidelines, currently under review.
