Scenarios for transition towards a low-carbon world in 2050 : What’s at stake for heavy industries ?

28 Apr 2009

Launched in 2004, the study Scenarios for transition towards a low-carbon world in 2050 : What’s at stake for heavy industries explores how major industrial sectors will be impacted by a carbon constraint stabilizing atmospheric CO2 concentration at 450 ppm. By means of an innovative hybrid modelling platform and ongoing dialogue between researchers and industrials, the study produces conclusions concerning both general climate policy as well as the economic response of industrial sectors-specifically of the steel, aluminium, cement, and sheet glass sectors, as well as of the energy sector.
