Key challenges which were explored in 2023

We base all our agendas on feedback gained from our industrial members and attendees. Here are some of the challenges and questions that were put under the spotlight:


• How can industrials plan ahead, when the policy frameworks lack clarity? What can policy makers tell us about the evolution of regulations and impact on different sectors?

• In light of the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in the U.S how is Europe going to be competitive?

• CCUS and H2 are going to be critical to get to net zero by 2050, but will the infrastructure be in place to meet the demands of decarbonising industries? What is the status of projects for transportation storage and how will policy support their development?

• Souring energy costs and energy security are front of mind, what are the alternatives to natural gas in the short term?

Site Visit for 2023

ArcelorMittal’s Steelanol Project and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant in Ghent

Attendees had the opportunity to see:

• ArcelorMittal’s Steelanol pilot project, capable of recycling carbon-rich industrial gases and transform into advanced sustainable ethanol to further reduce their carbon emissions. The process will allow for the capture and reuse of a portion of carbon emitted by the steel industry without need to rebuild the BAT (Best Available Technologies) steel plant while supplying the transport sector with high grade biofuel.

• Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant – a multi-purpose state-of-the-art facility that supports the process development, scale-up and custom manufacturing of biobased products and processes.
