Beyond Zero Emissions is doing research into:
How Australian industry can move to zero emissions.
You may be surprised to learn that cement, steel, and in fact all energy-intensive materials, can be produced without fossil fuels! Who knew!
Cement can be made using fly-ash or using low-heat geo-polymers instead of limestone and coal, steel can be created from treating iron ore with hydrogen produced in excess from renewable energy utilities, and we can use a range of off-the-shelf energy efficient appliances and technologies to create heat for industry, for everything from canning food to recycling paper and steel to melting glass.
Listen to BZE’s research director Michael Lord talk about:
- zero carbon cement,
- renewable heat,
- zero carbon steel and
- how the circular economy can apply to Australia’s industry sectors.
