A significant portion of industrial emissions result from the utilization of fossil fuels for generating process heat. How biomass-based solutions can replace fossil-fueled systems for industrial heat is the topic of an upcoming webinar by the World Bioenergy Association (WBA), the first in its 2024 Spring webinar series.

Industrial carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have increased by approximately 70 percent since 2000. In 2022, the industry sector was directly responsible for a quarter of the global energy system’s CO2 emissions.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), industrial emissions must decrease by almost a quarter by 2030, or approximately 3 percent per year on average, to achieve the Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario (NZE Scenario).

This requires accelerated action at all levels.

A significant portion of industrial emissions result from the utilization of fossil fuels for generating process heat. Consequently, it is essential to decarbonize this part of the sector to mitigate industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Currently, bioenergy stands as the primary non-fossil source for industrial process heat.

To grasp the potential of biomass-based solutions for supplying industrial heat, it is crucial to examine the technological requirements of the process, assess local feedstock availability, and establish suitable fuel logistics systems.

The first free-to-attend WBA webinar in the 2024 Spring Webinar series, ‘Modern renewable heat using biomass for industries’, will be held on Zoom, and take place on February 27, 2024, at 11.00 CET.

This webinar will explore the various pathways for replacing fossil heat demand with biomass in industries such as steel, aluminum, beverage, food, cement, etc. The latest technology developments and policy and regulatory frameworks that may impact these industries will also be discussed.

Leading industry experts will share case studies of existing projects worldwide, as well as future opportunities for advancing decarbonization in industries using modern biomass heat.
