To meet the challenges of climate change and to advance the urgently needed decarbonization of all economic sectors, a comprehensive transformation of the energy and raw materials economy is necessary. Cooperation in solving scientific-technical problems is a decisive driving force for the successful and rapid reduction of greenhouse gases and for the sustainable development of circular economy value chains to conserve global resources and to preserve raw materials already in the cycle over as long a life cycle as possible. International cooperation with a constant transfer of technical knowledge is also an essential approach in this context.
This is where the work of WTZ e.V. comes in: The association aims to accompany the ongoing transformation of the energy and raw materials industry toward sustainable and climate-friendly value chains by networking national and international players from science and industry and providing impetus for the further development of climate-neutral energy systems, circular economy value chains and the avoidance of climate-damaging emissions. In this way, a platform is to be provided for new technological developments, but also research needs are to be identified which, in their further development, can contribute to a sustainable and resource-conserving transformation of the economy.
