This website discusses the European Commission"s 2011 Roadmap for moving to a competitive low-carbon economy in 2050, emission reductions will be required to take place in all sectors, with carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the industrial sectors reduced by 34% to 40% by 2030, and by 83% to 87% by 2050. The only available technology that can provide the required large-scale emission reductions in European Union energy-intensive industries--such as steel, cement, refineries and chemicals--is CO2 capture and storage).
