CATO is the Dutch national R&D programme for CO2 capture, transport and storage in which a consortium of nearly 40 partners cooperate. Building on the success of CATO-1 and CATO-2 the Dutch programme on CO2 Capture and storage's continues. Besides the contribution of our industrial partners, the third phase of CATO will be funded by different sources from the government, like TKI, CLIMIT, EU ERA-NET. The CATO program office will coordinate all the programmes under the CATO umbrella to strengthen the CSS network and knowledge transfer.

DEI subsidy to broaden and address CO2 reduction
In 2019, the subsidy scheme for Demonstrating Energy Innovation (Demonstratie Energie-Innovatie, DEI) will be altered significantly. More emphasis will be placed on the condition for achieving CO2 reductions in demonstration projects, and new types of projects will become applicable. The subsidy scheme is expected to open in February, and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl), will assess proposals on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The scheme was previously intended to showcase Dutch energy innovations, particularly for the export of new technologies. From 2019, there will be more emphasis on technologies that can contribute to achieving the national climate agreement ‘het Klimaatakkoord'. CO2 reduction technologies for industry, including CO2 capture, storage and use (CCUS) are now applicable for funding.
More information can be found on the website of RVO.
