Exchange with Chinese experts on emissions-intensive industries

On 13 January, the NDC implementation project discussed possible topics for emission reduction studies in selected sectors to be prepared together with Chinese experts. In addition to the project team and representatives of the consortium partners, three researchers from the Development Research Center (DRC), a think tank under the auspices of the State Council, were present. After a presentation of the NDCI project by project manager Steffen MENZEL, the Chinese experts presented possible research topics from the cement, steel, non-ferrous metals and petrochemicals, paper, and agriculture sectors. The topic of carbon sinks was also discussed as a potential focus of a study.

The participants of the workshop debated whether their joint research should focus on modelling emissions, technological solutions for emissions reduction, or a country-specific comparison of implemented policy measures. After the presentation of the Chinese experts, NDCI consortium partners were invited for feedback and questions. The feedback was well received; a first draft of the study is expected to be completed by April, and the next meeting will be held in May.
