Technologies and Policies to Decarbonize the Industry Sector

Nov 11th, 2018 - Nov 16th, 2018

This is an exciting time for industry. Revolutionary technologies such as 3D printing, innovative materials, and facility automation promise to remake every aspect of the manufacturing process, from prototyping to assembly. New technologies are transforming how we make everything from medicines to smartphones. These advances offer opportunities for cost savings, as well as for emissions reductions. It is necessary to identify how industry can use these technologies to reduce its carbon footprint while still manufacturing the products needed to support the global economy and raise the standard of living throughout the developing world. The workshop will bring together invitees with knowledge from various domains that bear on the problem of industry sector decarbonization.
