Keywords: , Decarbonization, energy efficient metals production; Environmental Protection, carbon capture
Scope: Metal production technologies are carbon and energy intensive, but it can be argued that the bulk of carbon footprint of metal processes comes from energy sources and reductants. In this case, decarbonizing is closely intertwined with energy consumption of processes. This special topic covers energy efficiency in relation to decarbonization of metal production. Manuscripts should address energy efficiency, carbon capture and reducing the carbon footprint of metals processing, as well as life cycle assessment.
