Zero carbon water: tackling process emissions

16 May 2023
Decarbonisation – delivering net zero

In 2022 water companies are committed to deliver a net zero water supply for customers by 2030 in the world’s first sector-wide commitment of its kind. However, moving and treating water is an energy and chemical intensive process leading to millions of tonnes of carbon emissions and other greenhouse gasses each year. Furthermore, these emissions are currently inconsistently measured or tracked. This must be addressed rapidly if the sector is to make good on its net zero commitment. Join this session to learn: 

  • Latest progress on improving and standardising methods for monitoring process emissions 

  • Fresh thinking on how to reduce or eliminate emissions from key processes 

  • How green hydrogen could play a role in tackling process emissions 

  • New approaches to reducing nitrous oxide emissions
