ESTAINIUM Association

ESTAINIUM is a non-profit, internationally active association with a focus on the cross-sector decarbonisation of industry along the supply chain. In a dynamic and committed environment, we are constantly striving to push the boundaries of sustainability and drive the energy transition forward. We work in a high professional environment on sustainability issues together with our members, companies and universities as well as government institutions.

The members

The ESTAINIUM members represent diverse roles in the future ecosystem of a circular carbon economy.

In addition to the work in three technical working groups common use cases and pilot projects are defined to learn and share the experience with the members of the association.
