The Status of Carbon Capture Projects in the U.S. (And What They Need to Break Ground)
In February 2018, the U.S. Congress passed the Bipartisan Budget Act, which included the expansion and extension of the 45Q tax credits for carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS.) The updated incentive was designed to be much more effective in driving new CCUS projects and immediately generated private sector interest. Just a few months later,News & Media

CATF Statement on Release of IRS Guidance for 45Q Tax Credits for Carbon Capture Projects
Kurt Waltzer, Managing Director, Clean Air Task Force, has issued the following statement: “CATF welcomes the long-awaited IRS guidance on 45Q tax credits. With it, CCS developers can move ahead on projects with certainty as to how the credits will be administered. As the IPCC has noted, large scale deployment of CCS is necessary to […]Decarbonized Fossil Energy
U.S. Department of Energy Goes Deep, Investing in Geologic Carbon Storage
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) made an important decision in late April to fund five CarbonSAFE project applications for a total of $85 million. These five projects are part of the Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE), a NETL initiative to further the development of regional commercial-scale geologic storage sites […]Super Pollutants
CATF Launches the Country Methane Abatement Tool
CATF’s Country Methane Abatement Tool (CoMAT) lets countries estimate how much methane pollution they can reduce from their oil and gas industries even when they have limited information about the industry and its current emissions.
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.
