The European Union's Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) starts entering into effect on October 1, 2023.This new tool seeks to ensure an equivalent carbon price between goods produced in the EU, and imported products, thereby countering the possibility of carbon leakage, a phenomenon where businesses were to transfer production to other countries with laxer emission constraints, but which ultimately leads to higher emissions.
Some questions arise such as why the need for a new carbon tax in Europe, on top of the current EU ETS? We will also explore how does CBAM work and what emissions are considered. We will also find out about its target sectors and explore what impact CBAM has on the green hydrogen industry.
Here's our take at Yamna!

Carbon capture offers imminent decarbonisation to many industries and is also deemed to be a crucial part of our net zero ambitions according to the International Energy Agency. Regarding its use in the hydrogen industry, there are mixed opinions as it can be used to decarbonise the mobility sector (through e-fuels) but can also be used as a tool to sustain emission-heavy projects.
