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.Super Pollutants
Europe Must Lead on Methane, Both Domestically and Internationally
Europe has long been one of the great lions of climate change advocacy. But in the halls of power throughout Europe there’s been a major blind spot: methane. Thankfully, that is changing. The European Union has set an ambitious goal for carbon neutrality, and Europeans have started to recognize that this goal can’t be metAdvanced Nuclear Energy
Clean Air Task Force Welcomes Introduction of the Nuclear Energy Research and Development Act
Earlier this month, Representatives Conor Lamb (PA-17) and Dan Newhouse (WA-4) introduced H.R. 6097, the Nuclear Energy Research and Development Act (NERDA). This bipartisan bill supports the role of existing and future nuclear technology to achieve national and international decarbonization goals and CATF welcomes its introduction. CATF considers nuclear energy to be potentially an important […]Decarbonized Fossil Energy
CCS Could Reduce 49 Million Tonnes of CO2 Emissions From Coal & Gas Power Plants
This time last year, the U.S. Congress passed a bipartisan bill called the Bipartisan Budget Act, which expanded and extended the 45Q federal tax credits for carbon capture and storage (CCS.) Happy anniversary, 45Q! As we entered a new world of 45Q, CATF took on the task of quantifying the impact of 45Q in the […]
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.
