    How the nuclear market can be restructured and reimagined to effectively tackle industrial decarbonisation and the energy transition

    How the nuclear market can be restructured and reimagined to effectively tackle industrial decarbonisation and the energy transition

     In this episode we look to a very specific nuclear technology that reuses nuclear waste. You’ll hear from Andrew Murdoch, the Managing Director of UK Ops for newcleo as he talks through the structural and market changes that would support wider use of nuclear as a clean energy. 
     
    Key takeaways to listen out for: 
     
    What it takes to create a zero carbon nuclear SMR plant?How the technology originated – what were the roots of resuing nuclear waste as a fuel? You’ll hear about the timeline to selling the first clean power from newcleo’s tech?Which markets or offtakers are signing MOUs and most likely to support the growth of this market? Acquiring companies along the value chain – what’s the plan and how does it support expansion?

    Securing authentic customer-driven demand for the energy transition and its critical projects

    Securing authentic customer-driven demand for the energy transition and its critical projects

    Krista Johnson brings a real passion for enabling universal access to clean energy to this episode of the podcast. Listen in for a conversation that explores what it means to get true customer-driven demand for projects and how to engage authentically and positively with the neighbours and stakeholders of your projects. 
     
    Anyone working to execute major projects in decarb or energy transition knows that customer engagement is increasingly requiring a total change in approach. In the US, the incentive-based policy approach absolutely demands that projects have real customer buy-in. Early engagement is key to invite stakeholders on the transformation journey and address fears of new technologies.
     
    Takeaways: 
     
    o   Why is it so essential – commercially, ethically, strategically – to have consumer/local engagement?
    o   Listen to a comparison of two different project approaches to get a feel for how the landscape is changing and how different approaches yield different outcomes
    o   Explore how to work with communities as partners from the start to build trust and support
    o   What adopting a curiosity about community plans can do for your commercial project’s success. 
    o   How is Johnson Matthey taking a lead in this space to help deliver the energy transition

    Rebuilding global fertiliser market infrastructure to drive net zero

    Rebuilding global fertiliser market infrastructure to drive net zero

    Join Alex Cameron for this episode which welcomes Petter Østbø, former CEO of EuroChem and Founder/CEO of AtlasAgro. You’ll hear about the route to net zero in global fertilisers and the development of AtlasAgro’s ‘plant of the future’.
     
    The economic realities that large fertilizer companies face, largely due to fossil fuel-based assets and the nature of urea products, mean that decarbonisation of the ferts market as been slow . You’ll hear about how AtlasAgro is disrupting the market with its plans to build a network plants fuelled by clean hydrogen to bring green nitrates products to key markets whilst simultaneously removing the high transportation costs.

    Guest Podcast: The price of everything - SAF

    Guest Podcast: The price of everything - SAF

    This week we are partnering with General Index to share their episode which explores the market and pricing dynamics around SAF. We chose this episode as our Guest Podcast because of the links with co2 reuse, industrial decarbonization as well as the opportunity to host a discussion which was more focused on the economics of a key green product. 
     
    The aviation sector’s goal is to hit net zero by 2050 – and given the challenge of abating the sector, the potential for new, sustainable fuels is important. 
     
    This episode of The Price of Everything was introduced and presented by Neil Bradford and David Elward. It was produced by Andrew Wheeler at General Index, in collaboration with Sassy Clyde and Fraser Heanue of Janno Media.
