MATerial Technologies for greenhouse gas Emission Reduction. Workshop Proceedings
The MATTER project (MATerials Technologies for greenhouse gas Emission Reduction) is a joint project of five Dutch institutes within the framework of the National Research Programme on Global Air Pollution and Climate Change that focuses on the potential to reduce GHG emission in the life cycle of materials. The goal of this "Factor 2/Factor 10" MATTER workshop was to indicate the potential of materials strategies for GHG emission reduction.
Five papers were presented, one focusing on integrated systems calculations with the MARKAL model, three on product groups (passenger cars, packagings, and building and infrastructure) and one on a materials group (metals). Together these case studies cover a significant part of the total materials production and materials use. The title of the workshop "Factor 2/Factor 10" refers to the widely accepted notion that a factor 2 emission reduction is possible with technological improvements, while a factor 10 cannot be achieved through technological improvements alone. The case studies intend to put this hypothesis to the test.
