EU industrial technology roadmap published

In the beginning of April, the Commission has published the new European Research Area (ERA) industrial technology roadmap for low-carbon technologies.

The roadmap provides a list of key emerging low-carbon technologies for energy-intensive industries and ways to leverage R&I investments to accelerate their development and uptake in energy-intensive industries. It complements the revised Industrial Emissions Directive, as proposed on 5 April. The roadmap was elaborated with member states, industry and other stakeholders. It also provides a mapping of geographical location of these industries in the EU and their greenhouse gas emissions. Synergies with the R&I partnership Processes4Planet and the Clean Steel Partnership of Horizon Europe should be fully used, as well as those with other EU instruments, such as the Innovation Fund and InvestEU.
