Our members unite their forces to address key issues faced by the nacent Carbon Capture & Utilisation (CCU) industry.
Added value for our members
Our members benefit from a unique network where they can:
- share knowledge and expertise
- make their technology visible to potential partners and customers, whether that technology was developed in Europe or not.
Being part of our association also brings them the following services:
- Connecting supply and demand for captured CO2, in order to test CO2 conversion technologies
- Joint R&I and demo “flagship” CCU projects with partners, to upscale technology and drive costs down
- Support to get public and private funding for projects
- Spokespersons to represent the CCU community and boost general awareness and acceptance of CO2 utilisation technologies
- Collective advocacy actions to build the relevant regulatory and economic framework
- Collective work to define standards and guidelines for the new CCU industry
Membership is open to private industrial companies with an interest to develop activities in Europe. It is also open to Research & Technology Organisations (RTOs), universities (or university departments), national/regional clusters, port and territorial development agencies, private investors or NGOs who are based in Europe. Sectorial/trade associations at European or national level, policy makers and governmental agencies cannot become members.
There are two types of members:
- define the strategic orientations and key positions of the Association
