Led the U.S. Push for Carbon Capture
Nearly every scientific modeling that explores potential pathways to a net-zero emissions future includes carbon capture technology as a critical piece of the puzzle. CATF understood that imperative early, and led peer NGOs and the U.S. government in the first efforts to support technologies to capture and store CO₂ from fossil fuel burning, achieving regulatory incentives and requirements through policy advocacy, research, and private sector engagement. In 2018, Congress passed the FUTURE Act, which provides tax incentives up to $35 per ton of CO₂ for the use of carbon capture technologies.
Our work on carbon capture has grown significantly over the years, and expanded into Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, with a global staff that includes a team of geoscientists, policy experts, and lawyers.
