There are no quick fixes to long-term energy challenges. To find solutions, governments and industry benefit from sharing resources and accelerating results. For this reason the IEA enables independent groups of experts - the Energy Technology Initiatives, or ETIs1.
|Industrial Technologies and Systems|
Jointly organised by the ETIs dealing with efficiency in the industrial sector (IETS) and carbon capture and storage (GHG), this workshop presents an overview of the current state-of-the-art technology in industrial CCS and improved understanding of the different challenges in deploying CCS in the oil refining, chemical/petrochemical, and pulp and paper industries. Presentations are now available on the IETS website.
The first newsletter from the ETI focusing on efficiency in the industrial sector (IETS) gives a short status report on five on-going projects, forthcoming events, and industry activities. Download from the IETS website here.
The Implementing Agreements in this category are reviewed by the Working Party on Energy End-Use Technologies (EUWP).
