The next frontier: decarbonising industrial heat

Power stations

Emma said: “Industrial heat is often termed ‘hard to decarbonise’ because of the large, and diverse range of processes used within industry.”

Most industrial heat is generated using coal, natural gas and oil to drive processes from chemical reactions to distillation and drying. 

Because of this diversity, it also means there is no one solution for decarbonising all sectors. Instead, a wide range of technologies are likely to play a role.

Many at an early stage of development and not yet commercialised. The next steps in the decarbonisation journey is about scaling these options and removing barriers for low carbon replacements.
