CATO cooperates with a great number of national and international groups that are active in Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage. CATO serves as the national point of contact for many of those groups. The following relevant links are provided for your convenience:




ACT is an international initiative to establish CO2 capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) as a tool to combat global warming. ACT means Accelerating CCS Technologies, and the ambition of the 16 partners is to fund research and innovation projects that can lead to safe and cost-effective CCUS technology.


CGS Europe is a research collaboration program aiming to establish a credible, independent, long-lasting and representative pan-European scientific body of expertise on CO2 geological storage. The CGS Europe consortium includes key geoscientific institutions from the existing CO2NET EAST and ENeRG networks.


CO2GeoNetis a European network on research relating to geological storage of CO2. It consists of 13 partners in  7 European countries, including several CATO partners. Contact TNO Ton Wildenborg, +31 88 866 4636. 


The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEA GHG)presents an introduction to the capture and storage of CO2 and how it could play a significant role in reducing the release of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. There are also copies of IEA GHG reports, their regular newsletter (Greenhouse Issues), details of forthcoming conferences and links to other sites. 



ECCSELEuropean Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Laboratory Infrastructure. The vision....... Enabling low to zero CO2 emissions from industry and power generation
.... to help combating global climate change.


The UKCCS Research Centre innovates, leads and coordinates a programme of underpinning research on all aspects of CCS in support of basic science and UK government efforts on energy and climate. 



IEA Clean Coal Centreprovides information on the efficient use of coal, co-firing biomass, et cetera,  and organizes webinars and events. 


Founded in 2005, the European Technology Platform for Zero Emission Fossil Fuel Power Plants (ZEP)is a unique coalition of stakeholders united in their support for CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) as a key technology for combating climate change. ZEP serves as advisor to the European Commission on the research, demonstration and deployment of CCS. Contact TNO Filip Neele, +31 88 866 4859.


The Global CCS Institute is an international membership organization. Our mission is to accelerate the development, demonstration and deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS), a vital technology to tackle climate change and provide energy security.   



The website van Milieu Centraal(in Dutch) aims at providing information on CCS to the general public.


The Rotterdam Capture and Storage Demonstration Project (ROAD)  is an initiative of Uniper Benelux (previously E.ON Benelux) and ENGIE Energie Nederland (previously GDF SUEZ Energie Nederland). As of 2015, ROAD plans to capture 1.1 million tonnes of CO2 per year from a new power plant at the Maasvlakte and will store the captured CO2 in a depleted gas reservoir under the North Sea. 

Borg Foundation is an alliance between the organizations involved in the entire chain of CO2 capture, transport and storage in the Northern part of the Netherlands. Borg provides information on CO2 storage and facilitates the dialogue with all stakeholders.   


STEPWISE   is a project executed within the European H2020 LCE program. It has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 640769. The project aims at the demonstration of advanced pre-combustion CO2 removal technology within the framework of the Iron and Steel industry, aiming at lowering the CO2 footprint of steel production.


The FReSMe  project will leverage infrastructure from the Stepwise research project, at the Swerea MEFOS facility in Luleå, which separates CO2 from blast furnace gas and from the MefCO2 project which demonstrates how CRI's technology can utilize intermittent renewable electricity sources.

In addition to CRI, Swerea MEFOS, SSAB and Stena over half a dozen industrial firms and research institutes from six European countries will participate in the FreSMe consortium. Other partners include Tata Steel Netherlands, Kisuma Chemicals (Netherlands), Array Industries (Netherlands) and leading Dutch research institute ECN.
