How the Chemical industries are key in the battle for environmental change since the Paris Accord

Note: Almost every produced good in our daily consumption and goods generated by industries and distributed worldwide have sources in the chemical industries.No change in Climate change and Green Environment without a steady pressure of the all encompassing chemical industry.

Transformed goods, agricultural sectors, plastic industries, oil/gas industries and refineries, extraction/processing minerals (rare minerals, copper, graphite, radioactive elements…), recycling industries… are based on what the chemical industries are producing.

Most alternative chemicals and transformation processes needed to change the climate and our daily health and safety are based on what the chemical industries are ready to focus on and make priorities.

This post is definitely an advertisement piece by Chimie de France, and it is a great launching pad to inform the common people of the most important chain in our well-being.

Almost all processing industries do Not need such kinds of propaganda since they know what is needed from the chemical industries to produce and offer as alternatives.

That serious funding should be allocated to chemical fields of study (engineering, research, labs…). Non-profit organizations need to compensate for the funding of the most polluting industries, especially in the biased research

And serious investigative works endeavored by governments, organizations, journalism…in order to find out the health/safety working environment of the chemical industries.

And serious financial investigative works into the margin of profits in the chemical industries and the multinational links with all the most polluting industries.

ACCORD DE PARIS :

LA CHIMIE À LA POINTE DANS LA LUTTE CONTRE LE CHANGEMENT CLIMATIQUE

Alors que l’Accord de Paris fête son 5e anniversaire, la Chimie en France confirme sa contribution de premier plan en matière de transition énergétique.

Les entreprises de la Chimie en France sont résolument engagées pour lutter contre le réchauffement climatique et relever les défis de la durabilité des ressources.

Depuis 1990, leurs efforts et leurs innovations ont permis de réduire de 63%[1] leurs émissions de gaz à effet de serre, alors même que la valeur ajoutée du secteur augmentait de 26%. Depuis l’Accord de Paris, ces émissions ont baissé de plus de 8%.

À l’image du reste de l’industrie, la Chimie apporte ainsi l’une des plus importantes contributions à la France dans sa lutte contre le changement climatique (plus de la moitié de la baisse des émissions totales de l’industrie depuis 1990).

Cette performance remarquable a été essentiellement permise par l’élimination de 95% des émissions de protoxyde d’azote (N2O) et l’amélioration de l’efficacité énergétique des procédés industriels.

Cet engagement en faveur de la transition énergétique se poursuit, avec 9 projets[2]d’envergure en cours de développement qui vont permettre à eux seuls d’éliminer près de 850 000 tonnes de CO2 dans les 3 prochaines années (soit une baisse de 4%).

Le secteur est par ailleurs au cœur du volet décarbonation de « France Relance ». Au total, plus de 50 projets vont être déposés par les adhérents de France Chimie sur l’ensemble des dispositifs (projets d’efficacité énergétique, de « flow chemistry », de décarbonation de la chaleur ou pilotes de technologies moins matures).

France Chimie estime que, si les conditions de compétitivité sont réunies, le secteur pourrait encore réduire ses émissions d’environ 30% en 2030 par rapport à 2015.

Pour aller plus loin, il sera indispensable d’industrialiser avec succès des technologies de rupture, en particulier la capture et le stockage ou l’utilisation du CO, l’hydrogène bas-carbone et l’électrification des procédés.

Au-delà de ses efforts pour diminuer son empreinte, la Chimie innove pour fournir les solutions nécessaires à une économie décarbonée.

Cette contribution est reconnue dans « France Relance » au travers de premiers financements annoncés dans le Plan Auto pour le développement de composants utilisés dans les batteries ou de matériaux pour l’allégement des véhicules.

Elle s’illustre également par les projets d’envergure déposés dans le domaine du recyclage chimique, un des leviers de décarbonation pour les marchés utilisateurs du plastique.

Enfin, elle se confirme par la dynamique de projets candidats dans le domaine de la chimie biosourcée et issue des biotech. Toutes ces innovations sont indispensables pour le développement des énergies renouvelables et le stockage d’énergie, la mobilité durable, l’habitat économe en énergie ou encore l’économie circulaire.

Enfin, France Chimie souhaite rappeler qu’avec son mix électrique déjà sobre en carbone, la France dispose d’un atout incomparable pour accompagner son industrie dans une croissance décarbonée.

À mesure que se développeront l’électrification des procédés, le recours à l’hydrogène, etc… il importera de répondre à des besoins massifs d’électricité à des niveaux compétitifs.

Pour Luc-Benoit Cattin, président de France Chimie :

« À l’occasion de l’anniversaire de l’accord de Paris, la Chimie en France se félicite d’être un des secteurs industriels qui a le plus réduit ses émissions de gaz à effet de serre.

En s’appuyant sur les dispositifs de « France relance » et sur sa capacité d’innovation, elle poursuit une réduction ambitieuse d’ici 2030 et le développement de solutions qui permettent à ses clients de réduire leur empreinte carbone. »

Heavy pollution of all kinds hidden from the everyday observation of common people. The dangerous regions for pollution have Not been transferred, and increasing dramatically.

Pollution is here to stay and to increase: Air quality, water quality and food quality…

So far, the colonial powers crazily printed money with no reserves of any kind with the excuse that their people need to survive without working and producing what could sustain any economuy.

The global debt has reached $300 trillion. Mind you that the entire world produce goods to what amount to $5 trillion. The remaining GNP are plain reshafling and transferring debts in and out of countries.

The colonial powers borrow from one another at 3% and lend to other nations at 8%.

Every country has a national debt, excepting China. Japan is the second most indebted nation after the US. China is maybe the only country infusing “fresh money” into the world economy by buying bonds.

No colonial power will ever pay a dime on the Principles of its loans: they pay the interests after devaluing their currencies.

Syria was the other nation with zero national debt before 2011, and that is why Syria had to be punished with civil war that is still going on.

Saudi Kingdom and the Emirates were also infusing “fresh money” until the US started to blackmail them to fund terrorist movements and buying irrelevant weapons that they cannot repair, maintain or even use them.

So far, only China is infusing “fresh money” in this financial system of distributing “debt money” that amount to One $ trillion every single day by investment multinationals that do Not add any value to sustain the global economy.

It is the poorer nations that are adding value to products generated cheaply by millions of workers, badly paid and working in unsafe environment.

Green climate?

All the equipments and machines meant to generate green climate absorb plenty of rare minerals in order to work and function: Aeolien, sun plates to generate electricity, electric cars, computers…

Extracting rare minerals (about 10 of them) and processing them generate horrendous pollution to phreatic water, rivers and air quality.

People who work in rare mineral activities have low life expectancy. Actually, China is putting to work all the citizens who were displaced from their lands due to series of giga dams along the Yellow River and other rivers. And heavily polluting the Mekong River that crosses most of South- East Asia countries.

Just for the extraction of graphite in China is a worst reminder of colonial powers early industrialization period that hired children to excavate coal for their iron industry.

Lithium is a main element in the batteries of all equipment, and especially for electric cars. Bolivia is the set to generate most of this “rare element”. The open air deposit covers a land as vast as little Lebanon (10,000 sq.km).

Many colonial powers bid for the construction of Lithium plants and China ended up building it.

Actually, the colonial powers conducted a coup d’etat against Evo Morales in order to stabilize the price of Lithium and amass plenty of reserve of this ingredient.

Copper is another major element in the pipes and conducting coil for electricity.

Although copper is Not within the rare materials, Northern Chili is being depleted of its major vast open air extraction “pit”, in size and depth. Areas within 300 km radius of this pit are heavily polluted and 30% are dying Not from natural causes.

This observation is culminating in the constant erection of utility centrals powered by coal to feed the copper extraction.

Norway is set to have only electric cars on its street in the next decade. And Norway is sustaining its “green” program by exporting oil. Actually, it is an Iraqi immigrant, a petroleum engineer who started Norway extraction of oil in the sea and instituted its “Sovereign Fund” for the next generations.

The emission of CO2 and methane is increasing. Methane is 10 times worse than CO2 as the permafrost in the Poles are melting. Worst, the colonial powers are happy that they soon will be able to extract oil/gas from the arctic and that the northern “icy” water way is opened for maritime transportation.

Green climate? No see pollution around for most of us but here to stay and dying believing that pollution has been under “control”.

Note: This Covid-19 pandemics has decelerated the frantic “trade” in air, route and maritime transport. A few cities experienced clearing of its air pollution for a short while. It didn’t make a dent on climate change: the UN has confirmed, as facts, that the last 5 years were the worst in “natural” calamities. Reversing this trend to sustain a slow “normal nature recovery” requires a world trend in adopting “frugal” lifestyle and away from this fixation of constant “Growth economy”.

Maybe this slowing down of the economy didn’t make a dent in the short term on climate change, but it gave hope that the mental and emotional readiness of people to adopt an alternative standard of living and lifestyle will transcend the multinational greed.
