A report by CE Delft commissioned by CAN Europe on identifying breakthrough technologies for the production of ammonia, olefins and aromatics in the European region.
In all three sectors examined in this report CE Delft identified technologies that are able to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% or more. Most of those technologies are in pilot phase or close to being applied in small scale demonstrator projects. According to the best estimates available to CE Delft, most of those technologies will reach market maturity between 2010 and 2030. In the following sections, we look at each of those sectors in more detail.
