Low-carbon industry is the key to a low-carbon world.
We want to use fossil-free heat to achieve rapid and deep decarbonisation. Bioenergy should be used to support industrial electrification. We also need industrial electrification to support the integration of renewables.
VTT’s near-term focus is on technologies that minimise emissions from concrete manufacturing. In the longer term we are developing industrial electrification and solutions that combine cost competitiveness and scalability.
These are the cornerstones of our approach:
The Paris Agreement goals cannot be met without low-carbon industry.
Rethinking steel and concrete is the key to global impact.
Fossil-free heat is a low-hanging fruit in decarbonisation.
Combining bioenergy and electricity is a route to rapid scale-up.
