  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Decarbonisation Hubs and The Opportunity for Deep and Rapid Carbon Reduction

    As the world seeks to deliver on the complex challenge of building decarbonised energy systems, reducing CO₂ emissions from industrial operations is critical as these account for around 23% of CO₂ emissions, as per data from the International Energy Agency (IEA). Based on the current trajectory, European final energy consumption is not projected to decrease […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Bipartisan Support for Carbon Capture Jobs

    Bipartisan support is growing for carbon capture. Both Democrats and Republicans support new efforts to enhance tax credits that reward companies for capturing CO2 and storing it underground.  These credits, known as 45Q, are the primary federal policy driver for CCS. First, President Biden’s American Jobs Plan advocates 45Q enhancements that would raise the tax […]

  • Policy CATF Statement on EU Climate Targets

    Climate targets are a helpful indicator of political will, and we’re happy that the European Union has made a positive step in the right direction. But the conversation has to shift from climate targets to climate action. Without significant measures to cut greenhouse gas emissions this decade, these 2050 climate targets will become purely academic. […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Profile: How Porthos is decarbonizing industry in the Netherlands

    Decarbonizing industry is particularly vital for countries like the Netherlands where a significant proportion of emissions come from industrial hubs. With the revision of the Trans-European Networks for Energy (TEN-E) Regulation firmly on the climate agenda, Mark Driessen from Porthos spoke with us about the importance of recognizing CO2 storage and transport modalities other than […]
