Decarbonizing the industry

The demand for goods, equipment, and energy has increased in line with the growth of the global population and the aspiration of most populations to have a high level of comfort and service. This demand is met by an industrialized and globalized production system that heavily relies on hydrocarbons and coal. As a major contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the industry is targeted by policies aimed at reducing carbon footprint caused by human activities. The industry faces a dual challenge: decarbonizing its production processes and transitioning manufacturing towards low-carbon products capable of contributing to the overall GHG emissions reduction.

Romain Allais, one of Artelia’s specialists in industrial decarbonization, presents the several levers currently being activated or considered to drive this change.

Souveraineté sanitaire et production de médicaments

En 2020, la pandémie de Covid-19 a mis en évidence la forte dépendance des nations européennes aux importations de médicaments et de principes actifs pharmaceutiques indispensables à leur fabrication. La question de la souveraineté sanitaire a ainsi été reposée au niveau de l’Union européenne et des pays membres qui ont exprimé leur volonté de sécuriser leurs approvisionnements, notamment en relocalisant et en augmentant la production industrielle sur leurs sols. David Papillon, qui pilote pour Artelia la conception de l’usine de paracétamol de Seqens à Roussillon, nous livre un retour d’expérience sur ce mouvement en France.
