Hosted by:

  • The University of Adelaide’s Centre for Energy Technology,
  • The Heavy Industry Low-carbon Transition (HILT) CRC,
  • Mission Innovation's Net Zero Industries (NZI) Mission

Learn more about our co-partners.

The HiTeMP forum brings together some 200 delegates from industry, research and government agencies, drawn from some 15 countries, to accelerate the transition to net zero for high temperature industrial processes. Its unique focus on the synergy between the various types high temperature industrial processes fosters both cross-industry learnings, new circular-economy opportunities and the establishment of industrial hubs.

Hi-TeMP-4 will feature:

  • Invited keynote and panellists, , as described in the program, addressing the themes of:
    • Global and national drivers for industrial decarbonisation
    • Exemplars in high temperature industrial decarbonisation
    • Industrial hubs and their role in lowering costs
    • Energy Infrastructure: overcoming the barriers
    • Finance, Policy and Regulation    Iron and Steel - Synthesis of directions
    • Beneficiation & recovery: upgrading, coproducts and circularity 
    • Electrification of high temp processes (calciation, reduction, Re-heating, etc)   
    • Iron and Steel: : Prospective pathways
    • Alumina & Critical Minerals – Propspective pathways
    • Cement and lime: Prospective pathways
  • Conference papers, with the option for fast-track publication in a special issue conference proceeding. Successful abstract submissions will entitle delegates to present a poster at the forum of a paper, which will be peer-reviewed and published. 
  • Industrial Exhibition, to be introduced for the first time in HiTeMP

Greening the grid

How will the grid adapt to manage the increasing demand for net-zero carbon electricity? Dr Jaquelin Cochran, from NREL, will present a case study of how the city of Los Angeles’ grid could run on 100% renewable energy, at the HiTeMP-3 Forum, which is being held at the National Wine Centre, Adelaide from Sept 26 – 28, and online.
