Fire-side Chat: Walking the Timeline to Net Zero Metals

Join our panellists as they take a timeline approach to examine what each phase of decarbonisation will look like for metals manufacturers between now and 2040.

The discussion will take a glimpse of “what’s happening” at 3-5 year increments along the timeline and will discuss the critical, strategic and deployment phases along the way. While we focus on metals for this discussion, the webinar will also be relevant to other energy-intensive manufacturers looking for the technical, financial and organisation deliverables that are needed in order to achieve net zero.

This is about more than just technology; this is about establishing the ways of working that will be real-world essentials if we’re to achieve decarbonisation. Join us as we discover where the grittiest challenges lie and how they can be tackled. 

Moderator:
Lene Hviid, PhD, Board Member A/S Norske Shell & Global Key Accounts Manager – Metals, Shell

Panellists:
Richard Adams, CEO, Warralong Group

André Vidal, Head of Hydrogen Fuel Switch Solutions, Hydro Havrand

Hans Van Der Weijde, Director – Programmes, TATA Steel R&D

 

Key takeaways:

  • What lies behind the technologies that can transform hard to abate sectors? What are the implementation realities and budget requirements?
  • How will collaborations with perhaps unusual suspects get moving and who might those collaborators need to be?
  • What could the market-leading customer collaborations look like, the ones that spark market demand for green products?
  • How can we activate widespread demand and make it easier (starting in 2022)?
  • At what point on the timeline will green products be common in the market? The dominant material in the market?
  • What kind of cultural and societal transformation might be needed to secure a green industrial future?

Decarb Connect | Hans van der Weijde

Dr.ir.D.H (Hans) van der Weijde (1969) studied materials science and engineering at Delft University of Technology specialising in corrosion and electrochemistry. He subsequently did a PhD at the same faculty on life time prediction of paint systems on metals. Following that PhD he became lecturer at Delft University before moving to Hoogovens ( now Tata Steel) in 1998 to become knowledge group leader in the packaging R&D department. He quickly became Department manager for that department which widened his cope to metal forming, modelling en food/consumer knowledge. When the packaging department merged with other department he became programme manager for packaging and for the long term research programmes. Especially this diende his scope to most of the areas of and integrated steel company. Since 2020 he is Director Programmes for Tata Steel Europe R&D responsible for the content of the R&D programme.

Hans is a member of the Advisory Council at the Materials Innovation Institute (M2i,  the HTSM roadmap council and owner of the national roadmap on high tech materials at Holland High Tech, member of the advisory committee Electrochemistry and Materials and member of the strategic advisory committee of the Henry Royce Institute and member of the Kuratorium at Fosta (forschung stahlanwendung).

In his private life he loves nature, running, hiking and cooking.
