Pillar 1: Technologies for sustainable growth

Session 1.3 – Environment and decarbonisation

31 October 2018, 11:00-12:00, room Lehar 2/3/4


The session will address how innovative materials and industrial processes can strengthen the fight against pollution and avoid the most dangerous effects of climate change, helping to match the commitments of COP21. Success stories of technologies for environmental remediation (including air and soil) will be used as examples of a path towards sustainable growth reducing harmful effects on human health.
