Show Notes

The EU LNG import terminals currently import LNG that consists of methane of fossil origin. LNG produces lower CO2 emissions than most fossil fuels and has a low level of methane leakages in the long term. However, they need to demonstrate their potential for achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and break the public perception for their exclusive use for the traditional fossil fuel.

In the long-term, LNG terminals have the potential to be the import gates for renewable energy sources in liquified form based on a proven business model. Through their assets, capabilities and expertise, and their location close to industrial zones, LNG terminals are well positioned to develop new services, making a meaningful contribution to the energy transition and the circular economy.

Delivering on the EU Green Deal: What role for innovation and disruptive technologies in agriculture

The EU Green Deal seeks to “transform the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy, where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases in 2050 and where economic growth is decoupled from resource use”. The development of innovative solutions is thus of key importance. There are numerous efforts aimed at achieving a more sustainable future through inventions, including in the field of agriculture, which is both strongly impacted by climate change and a driver of climate change at the same time. Its role is therefore key for a sustainable future. New technological solutions in the field of biotechnology for instance have the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to make agricultural resources more resilient to climate change. ...
