Global anthropogenic carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2eq) emissions have reached alarming concentrations that accelerate threats to our planet and human society, including climate change. These CO2eq emissions remain increasing in the most recent inventories. More importantly, most pessimistic scenarios project that we will exceed greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at levels that can constrain our ability to reverse the global warming effects if we do not decarbonize the economy through sustainable technologies. United States emissions inventories estimate that industrial processes contribute nearly a quarter of GHG emissions and are higher worldwide. Therefore, this Industrial Decarbonization Symposium will consider applied research and early-stage innovations from universities, labs, and startups in the following topics and application areas in response to these climate and security needs.
