CATF endorsed by leading researchers as highly effective non-profit
Over the past few weeks, the Clean Air Task Force has been honored by multiple endorsements from leading philanthropic research evaluators for our impact and the effectiveness of our work. Endorsements like the one we received from international London-based charity evaluator, Founders Pledge, included an expanded charity report on our work and outlines why theyPower Plants
In a Reversal, EPA Maintains Standard for Coal-Fired Power Plants Based on CCS
Yet, in a last-minute attempt to protect industry, says power plants are the only sources whose climate emissions can be regulated After proposing to repeal the first ever U.S. greenhouse gas standards issued in 2015 for coal-fired power plants – which are based on partial carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) – EPA decided to leave them in place.

The Clean Air Act at 50
Today —December 31, 2020— marks the 50th anniversary of the enactment of the Clean Air Act. Shepherded by Maine Senator, Edmund Muskie, passed unanimously in the Senate and by a 374-1 margin in the House, and signed by Republican President, Richard Nixon on New Year’s Eve 1970, the Act arguably represents the most successful U.S. […]
We push the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. Imagine a world where the energy needs of all humans are met efficiently without damaging the atmosphere.

How We're Different
Facilitating the commercialization of emerging and proven climate change mitigation technologies.
Working practically and objectively to catalyze and spark realistic change that leads to major impact through legal and legislative advocacy.
Driving support for the most effective policy and technology strategies.
Examining All Options with an Open Mind
Advanced Energy Systems
Provide the world with a vision of practical, resilient pathways to a zero carbon energy system.
Advanced Nuclear Energy
Create a normal global research and development, commercial, regulatory, and social ecosystem in which nuclear technology can flourish in order to decarbonize global energy production.
Redirect the production and use of bioenergy so that it contributes to—rather than undermines—decarbonization and climate stability.
Decarbonized Fossil Energy
Accelerate the adoption of carbon capture technologies to prevent CO2 emissions from power generation and industrial sources.
Ensure the adoption of U.S. emission standards on U.S. fossil power plants to zero out U.S. power sector carbon emissions by 2050.
Catalyze deep, global reductions in methane and black carbon emissions to help stave off the risk of irreversible changes to our climate.
