CATO continues

  CATO continues  

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. 

TKI-CCUS: Call for Proposals

Parties are invited to submit project proposals that address CCUS and focus on the implementation of knowledge capital acquired to date, thus improving the business case for CCUS projects.  

Parties are invited to explicitly address the expected impact of their research effort in terms of TRL-levels, the short- and long-term scientific impact, the economic impact and the environemental impact (climate gain).


They are furthermore invited to detail on the envisioned exploitation of their results and the importance of these results for Dutch CCS development.

The total subsidy budget available for this call is 250k€. The deadline for submitting proposals is Monday 30 January 2017; 12.00h.  For more information: TKI-CCUS: Call for Proposals. 



CATO-ECN EVENT: 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).


Please check the CATO-website in the next couple of weeks for the presentations.
