The EU and the European Green Deal set the objectives of achieving climate neutrality and increasing material efficiency. To achieve this, the management of carbon is one of the most important challenges.
Carbon is the atom of life, of our societies and economies; however, at the same time emissions from fossil fuel combustion have dramatically increased the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere resulting in global climate warming.

To meet this critical challenge, the European Commission recently adopted its Communication on the Sustainable Carbon Cycles, setting out the EU’s strategy to reduce the pressure on carbon resources and decrease CO2 emissions. A key objective is to have ‘at least 20% of the carbon used in the chemical and plastic products coming from sustainable non-fossil sources by 2030’.
How will the EU achieve this goal?
This webinar conference will showcase the case study of Clariter, founded in Poland, whose innovative and unique process recycles carbon into high quality, high purity products with more than 1000 applications across industry, thereby making a substantial contribution to achieving Europe’s goals. The discussion will include a Q&A where the audience can interact to ask questions and give feedback.
The panel will include:
- Member of the European Parliament
- Representative of the European Commission
- Representative of the Dutch government
