The New Materials for a Zero-Carbon World
Wednesday, May 11, 2022 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM GMT+1
Moving to a zero-carbon world requires a departure from business as usual. It presents the most fascinating challenge in recent economic times. We will see new sectors, business models, products and technologies emerge – all of which will require different types of raw materials such as copper, lithium, cobalt, hydrogen, and new nutrients.
While the demand for such raw materials will increase significantly, we need to find ways to source them in a sustainable way and apply circular economy principles and methodologies to ensure that these rare resources are used in the most efficient manner. The EBRD regions show significant potential for mining the resources required for a zero-carbon transition.
This event - featuring a panel of industry experts, scientists and representatives from the private sector - will highlight the opportunities for the EBRD regions. Panellists will discuss how to maximise the value of their countries’ resources by a combination of technology shifts, new demand development and the acceleration of private capital into early deployment of new materials and business models.
