Sustainable production systems

Low-carbon value chains based on the circular economy and bio-economy are the future foundation of Europe’s industry.

Climate-KIC‘s SPS theme catalyses the transition to a zero carbon economy by seed-funding high-impact climate solutions, facilitating innovative cross-industry co-operation and supporting technological as well as unique business model innovation in regional clusters and value chains.

Industry emissions account for 30 per cent of total global greenhouse gas emissions. These stem mainly from materials processing in the metals and chemicals sector, where demand in the automobile, household appliances, consumer electronics and packaging sectors is highest.
