Environmental goals demand industrial transformation
Swedish industry is faced with major challenges. According to a 2016 cross-party agreement on long-term energy policy, Sweden has goals of fossil-free electricity production by 2040 and climate-neutral industry processes by 2045. Industrial transformation is a field that supports the transition to a resource and energy-efficient, CO2-neutral process and manufacturing industry. The emphasis is on renewable raw materials and methods that provide more process-intensive and flexible production.
