Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have exceeded 35 billion tons per annum. Without action, the world will experience irreversible environmental changes.


Industry needs
Carbon Transformation.

Heavy industry operations account for 32% of global CO2. While essential, the manufacture and production of materials and products, including cement and concrete, glass, liquid fuels and steel, contribute significantly to industrial CO2 emissions.
