The Biden administration has announced a $6 billion funding initiative for projects aimed at slashing emissions from the industrial sector, Isabella O’Malley and Jennifer McDermott reported for the Associated Press (AP).

The industrial sector is responsible for roughly 25% of all the nation’s emissions and has proven difficult to decarbonize due to its energy-intensive, large-scale operations. Iron, steel, aluminum, food and beverage, concrete, and cement facilities are some of those involved in this initiative.



Recipients of the funding, which is coming from the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, include 33 demonstration projects in more than 20 states.

White House climate adviser Ali Zaidi said this funding aims to eliminate 14 million metric tons of pollution each year, equivalent to taking about 3 million cars off the road, Donna Warder also reported for AP.
