Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap, Part 3, Chemical Manufacturing
- Nov 17, 2022 4:07 pm GMT
This is the third part of this series and is about Chemical Manufacturing. The diversity, complexity, and deep capital investment of the chemical manufacturing subsector make it one of the most difficult industrial segments to decarbonize. However the leaders in this segment realize they must find a reasonable path to sustainability.
The first sections in this post review potential paths to decarbonization, and the last section reviews the first sustainable chemical plant to be built in the U.S.
Note that both the subject of this post and the post itself are real monsters. Preparing this paper easily took triple the time of a typical paper, but if you are interested it what it will take to decarbonize the toughest industry in our economy, and (especially) if you are involved in the chemical industry, this is a “must read.”

As I started considering the IEEE Spectrum article used as a source for a future article, I found a lot to like. First of all, it described in detail the changes we (our societies) must make to implement Electric Vehicles, but also explored the..
If we are taking about the Planet-Earth, the title of this paper is absurd. In general, our planet has an almost fixed amount of water over any reasonably short period (say centuries to millennia). But what isn’t static is the water’s state.
