This session of the IEA Bioenergy eWorkshop - Contribution of sustainable biomass and bioenergy in INDUSTRY TRANSITIONS towards a circular economy will consider opportunities of biomass in larger, energy intensive industries. Examples are energy provision in cement industries, or provision of sustainable carbon sources in steel industries. There are also options to capture CO2 in these industries and convert them into fuel or products.
