It has been one year since the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was signed into law. Public and private stakeholders alike have been hard at work over the last year developing and submitting applications for funding support within the law.
Decarbonizing the industrial sector has long been challenging due to the number of different subsectors and the variety of emissions sources. This is the first post in a series that will break down the complexities of industrial emissions by walking through the top four industrial subsectors and how we can decarbonize them. First up, decarbonizing our concrete landscape.
The Industrial Innovation Initiative (I3) released the following statement regarding the Department of Energy's Industrial Decarbonization Road Map earlier this week.
Through Executive Orders, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the Inflation Reduction Act, the movement to cut climate damaging emissions from our industrial sector secured several monumental wins – but there is still work to be done.
Today President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 into law, marking a historic investment in the solutions necessary to meet our midcentury climate goals. This package will set the stage for unprecedented emissions reductions from the vital, yet challenging, industrial sector.
Today’s passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 by Congress marks a monumental investment in the solutions necessary to achieve U.S. climate goals. This package will set the stage for private investment, protect energy communities, support family-sustaining jobs, and spur emissions reductions from the vital, yet challenging, industrial sector.
Senate Democrats passed historic budget reconciliation legislation. We urge the House of Representatives to swiftly pass this package, investing in our nation’s industries and supporting family-sustaining jobs.

I3 dedicated the Hubs on the Horizon event to exploring the opportunities presented by the Carbon and Hydrogen Hubs projects funded in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
On April 18, 2022, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer released Michigan’s Healthy Climate Plan for midcentury decarbonization. In January of this year, the Council released an early iteration of the plan for public input. In response, I3 submitted comments commending key provisions to future proof Michigan’s local industry, calling for additional action in line with the Energy Intensive Industries Work Group recommendations, which provided the basis for the plan’s decarbonization strategies for industry.
