Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

The industrial sector is responsible for 21% of global CO2 emissions and will be the hardest to decarbonize due to its intrinsic need for carbon feedstock and high thermal requirements needs for process operations. However, the industry is coming under increasing pressure to innovate and adopt low-carbon solutions. In this report, we will examine the various technology options available for key industrial sectors to decarbonize their operations, and assess the opportunities and challenges that exist for sector.

China's Public, Private, People Approach to Innovation

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: October 2019

In recent years China is continuously challenging the West for the top spot on the global innovation leader board. With a face-paced innovation process that is counter intuitive to the traditional stage-gate approach developed and deployed in the West, China is quickly transforming itself into a global innovation leader - shedding its dated copycat stereotype and quickly transforming into the copied. At the root of this success is the fast changing socio-economic trends coupled with access to cutting edge technologies. In a unique public-private-people partnership, the government, private sector, and the masses together are enabling the country in bringing new innovations into the market at lighting speed.

How Digitally-Driven R&D Consortia Will Impact the Chemicals and Materials Industry

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: October 2019

New digitally driven tools – including advanced modeling and simulation, high-throughput screening, and materials informatics – are increasingly mature in the chemicals and materials space. While these tools are powerful and complementary, the data0centric nature makes them more valuable when companies form collaborations within or across the value chain. In addition, structural issues like long regulatory timelines still slow the process of bringing new products to market. This report looks to the pharmaceutical industry to understand how the chemicals and materials industry can form consortia to both better utilize these tools and overcome these structural challenges, and gives an outlook on the future of chemicals and materials R&D.

Ubiquitous Sensing
