Industrial Development Bureau (IDB), the industrial development arm of Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development, and Germany’s Siemens Energy have signed an agreement to decarbonise Abu Dhabi’s industrial sector.

The collaboration will support Abu Dhabi’s industrial strategy to establish the emirate as the most competitive industrial hub in the region, the UAE state-run Wam news agency reported.

Siemens Energy will support IDB to localise the manufacturing capabilities in Abu Dhabi and provide technological solutions to enhance the development and dissemination of carbon removal technology in the industrial sector.

The Abu Dhabi economic department will simplify the process of acquiring industrial licenses and incentives for businesses, making it more accessible for them to enter the industrial sector and utilise the various opportunities.

Furthermore, it will play a significant role in promoting decarbonisation technologies by identifying and assessing ideal locations for their implementation, leading to a decrease in carbon footprint and promoting the sustainability and economic progress of Abu Dhabi.

Siemens Energy will support research and development for innovative technologies, including waste heat recovery, electrification solutions, grid technology, and energy storage.

The German company will also support Abu Dhabi to localise the manufacturing of decarbonisation solutions.
