The Henry Royce Institute (Royce) and the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3) have launched a joint report which sets out how materials science and innovation will help the UK achieve net-zero.
The document aligns into the Government’s Ten Point Plan for
a green industrial revolution, the precursor to the subsequent Net Zero Strategy, which sets out how the UK will deliver on
its commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 and outlines measures to transition to a green and sustainable
future including helping businesses and consumers to move
to clean power.
The report highlights the importance and cross-cutting nature of materials science and demonstrates how different materials systems are applicable to each of the themes in the Government’s Ten Point Plan, as well as the applications and enabling technologies that will allow the plan to be put into action, which include, amongst others, .advancing offshore wind, driving the growth of low carbon hydrogen, delivering new and advanced nuclear power, and investing in carbon capture, usage and storage.
