Industrial Decarbonisation in Australia 2022
The Industrial Decarbonisation Global Expert Mission (GEM) to Australia took place virtually in May 2022 with the aim of better understanding the decarbonisation landscape and identifying synergies and opportunities for collaboration between the UK and Australia.
Abstract from outcome report:
The mission delegation focused on three areas of clean technology: blue hydrogen, green hydrogen and carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS). These are key enabling technologies which require significant development and commitment to support and accelerate global decarbonisation strategies. These are also areas in which both the UK and Australia have signalled their interest in bringing businesses together to work jointly on commercially viable solutions.
In 2021, the Australia–UK Clean Technology Partnership (CTP) was created to make low emissions technologies globally scalable and commercially viable. Innovate UK has also launched its own Industrial Decarbonisation Programme and is highly interested in the Australian industrial decarbonisation landscape.
