European Climate and Energy Modelling Platform 2022

ECEMP conference brings together Europes climate and energy modelling community. The three-day event will feature a balanced mix of high-level panel discussions and interactive workshop sessions. Conference is planned again as an online event due to uncertainties regarding the possibility of physical meetings. The original EMP-E was created in 2017 and has since been organised on a yearly basis by the H2020 Energy Modelling group - a group of projects funded by the European Commissions Research and Innovation Programme. Projects contributing to the conference have received funding from the European Unions Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. Themes include: Day 1: Energy security and geopolitics for fossil and low-carbon fuels Day 2: Innovation, societal and technical changes for Net Zero Day 3: The latest IPCC findings and implications for national and short-term

BOOSTING CIRCULARITY IN THE PROCESS INDUSTRY: FOCUS ON INDUSTRIAL SYMBIOSIS BETWEEN THE ALUMINIUM & CEMENT SECTORS - 26 SEPTEMBER 2022

Cement-based materials are the second most used substances in the world after water. About 60% of emissions are process emissions, related to the limestone decarbonisation during the calcination process. This one-day workshop aims to address the development of new clinker and/or SCM using alternative/waste-derived material resources.
