Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap

DOE’s Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap frames the emerging and transformative technology pathways needed to achieve net-zero GHG emissions in the industrial sector by 2050. It identifies four key pillars of industrial decarbonization:

  • energy efficiency;
  • industrial electrification;
  • low-carbon fuels, feedstocks, and energy sources (LCFFES); and
  • carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).

Each represents a high-level element of an industrial decarbonization action plan, and a cohesive strategy will require all four pillars to be pursued in parallel. The report also covers decarbonization in five industry subsectors:

  • iron and steel
  • chemical manufacturing
  • food and beverage
  • petroleum refining
  • cement manufacturing
