An international collaboration in the area digitalization and AI for energy efficiency and GHG mitigation in industry has recently started in the IETS TCP.</p>​​<span style="background-color:initial;font-family:arial, &quot;helvetica neue&quot;, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:16px">Digitalization and AI is one of the important areas for achieving deep decarbonization in industry. Due to the breadth of this area, a work has started within the IETS TCP to identify the part of it, which is most relevant for energy efficiency and GHG mitigation. In that work also specific tasks of highest importance to start a further international collaboration in have been identified. These are:<br /><br /></span><ul style="font-family:helvetica;font-size:16px"><li><span style="font-family:arial, &quot;helvetica neue&quot;, helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-weight:700">Methods and Applications of Digital Twins</span></span></li> <li><span style="font-family:arial, &quot;helvetica neue&quot;, helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-weight:700">Lessons Learned and Created Values by Digitalization</span></span></li> <li><span style="font-family:arial, &quot;helvetica neue&quot;, helvetica, sans-serif"><span style="font-weight:700">Digitalization Implementation Roadmaps</span></span></li></ul> <p style="margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px;font-size:16px;line-height:24px;padding:0px;font-family:helvetica"><span style="font-family:arial, &quot;helvetica neue&quot;, helvetica, sans-serif">In this collaboration, groups from a big number of countries will participate and it will be led by National Resources and Ecole Polytechnique, Montreal in Canada.

The purpose of this conference series is to bring together a wide range of scientists, experts and stakeholders, in order to engage in various aspects of research relating to negative CO2 emissions. This will include various negative emission technologies, climate modelling, climate policies and incentives. The main topics of the conference, around which the sessions will be built, include:</p><ul><li>​<span style="font-size:14px"><span style="background-color:initial">BECCS</span></span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Biospheric storage</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Cross-cutting sessions</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Direct air capture</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Enhanced weathering</span></li> <li><span style="font-size:14px">Modeling</span></li> <li><span style="background-color:initial">Ocean alkalization</span></li></ul> <span></span> <div><span style="font-size:14px"></span><span></span><div><span style="font-size:14px"><strong>Background</strong></span></div> <div><span style="font-size:14px">The objective of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2ºC, and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5ºC. The carbon budget is the amount of carbon dioxide that we can emit while still limiting global temperature rise to a given level, for example 1.5ºC.</span></div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial;font-size:14px"></span><strong>Read more and sign up to the conference:</strong><br /><a href="http://negativeco2emissions2020.com/"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />The 2nd International Conference on Negative CO2 Emissions​</a><br /></div>
