«Jeffrey Rissman takes on the most formidable of all climate goals: the complete elimination of fossil fuels employed by industrial processes. The emitter of one-third of all greenhouse gases is quickly becoming the innovator. With scholarship and élan, Zero-Carbon Industry describes the brilliant, practical, and step-by-step pathways that will achieve this goal.»

«Decarbonizing industry is the last, hardest, and most critical task for staving off the worst effects of climate change. But it’s a solvable problem, and Rissman is the right person to walk us through the suite of options and pathways to do just that. Ambitious in scope, straightforward in its approach, analytical in its bearing, nuanced in its details, and optimistic in its intent, this book lays out a blueprint for how to get there.»

«For those who hear the words "climate change" and picture dirty power plants and fossil fuel pipelines, read this book. It opened my eyes and will open yours to the fact that the industrial sector is responsible for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions. So, what do we do? Read this book. Rissman explores the new technologies, processes, and policies that could—with continued investment in research and development—transform the relatively small set of industries responsible for the lion’s share of this sector’s emissions into the economic engines of the future.»

Gina McCarthy, former U.S. national climate adviser and former administrator of the U.S. Environment
