Authors: Andrei Marcu, Aaron Cosbey, Michael Mehling
This report is a sectoral assessment analyzing the suitability of a CBAM in addressing carbon leakage and the competitiveness of individual industrial sectors, as well as its impacts. The sectors considered in the analysis include: cement, chemicals, electricity, ferrous metals, fertilisers, non-ferrous metals, pulp & paper and refined petroleum products. Lastly, the report draws on information gathered through extensive consultations with stakeholders and experts, research, data analysis and cooperation with sectoral associations.
This report is the first in a series of fours reports that will be published during the 2nd part of ERCST’s project on Border Carbon Adjustments in the EU. The first part of the BCA in the EU project culminated in a report published in September on the issues and options for introducing a BCA in the EU.
