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.
Will CCS reinforce the European steel industry?
In cooperation with ECN, CATO will co-host the two-day conference ‘Reducing the carbon footprint of the steel industry', on the 19-20 April 2017.
The scientific programme includes presentations of the latest results from the European funded Horizon 2020 projects, STEPWISE and FReSMe, which both focus on designing and demonstrating innovate CO2 capture techniques to reduce the carbon footprint of steel production.
An interactive session will also focus on policies to support decarbonization efforts, while maintaining competitiveness and innovation in the European steel sector.
Furthermore, an exciting social programme is being planned, allowing conference participants to ‘break-out' and join CATO and ECN on a visit to a unique part of the Netherlands, the ‘Zaanse Schans'.
The conference is being partly held in Zaandam (15 mins from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport), and at ECN's location in Petten (transport will be provided).
For now, please save the date!
More details will follow very soon...
