Our members unite their forces to address key issues faced by the nascent Carbon Capture & Utilisation (CCU) industry.

Added value for our members

Our members benefit from a unique network where they can:

  • share knowledge and expertise with other pioneer partners
  • make their technology visible to potential partners and customers (whether the technology is developed in Europe or not)

Being part of our association also brings them the following services:

  • A common voice to represent the CCU industry
  • Increased visibility and acceptance of CCU as a valid climate mitigation solution
  • Collective advocacy work to create a supportive regulatory and economic framework
  • Collective definition of industry standards
  • Connecting supply and demand for captured CO2
  • Matchmaking to set up joint R&I and “flagship” upscaling projects
  • Support to access EU funding for projects
  • Support to access funding from private investors


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:

Full members:

  • define the strategic orientations and key positions of the Association
  • have a voting right at the General Assembly and can be elected at the Board of Directors
  • can participate, chair and vote in all Working Groups and Task Forces
  • receive the full benefits available to members (full information, advanced notification of upcoming calls for projects, preferred conditions for events organised by the Association)
  • have the obligation to participate to at least 1 Working Group (except for small companies of less than 50 employees).

Industrial companies of large and medium size, as well as ports, can only join as full members.

Associate members:

  • can contribute to the Association and receive privileged information (versus non-members)
  • can attend the General Assembly but cannot vote, and they cannot be elected at the Board of Directors
  • can participate in Working Groups and Task Forces (subject to approval by the Chairperson for the Working Groups involved in advocacy and external communication) but cannot chair nor vote
  • have access to key documents (e.g. roadmaps, position papers) developed by the Association and can propose comments before public release
  • benefit from preferred conditions (versus non-members) at events organised by the Association (e.g. conferences, projects matchmaking)


The annual membership fee depends on the type and size of members:

Categories Yearly membership fee Yearly fee after two years (2020-)
Large companies and ports € 15,000 € 10,000
Other full members €   5,000 € 3,500
Associate members €   2,000 € 1,500

Membership charter

CO2 Value Europe believes that CO2 Capture and Utilisation (CCU) can and should make a significant contribution to the fight against global climate change. By joining our association, all CO2 Value Europe members therefore commit to abide to the following Membership Charter.


 By joining the CO2 Value Europe Association, the members:

  • Recognize that anthropogenic global warming is a reality and that CO2 emission mitigation is one of the largest and most serious challenges facing the world.  
  • Are committed to pushing forward measures and actions related to CCU technologies that contribute to the transition towards a low-carbon emission society as agreed in the COP21 Paris objectives.
  • Will collectively define and implement a strategic roadmap for CCU aimed at reducing net global CO2 emissions to the maximum extent possible within realistic industrial constraints.
  • Will develop and promote sustainable CCU solutions that effectively contribute to a net reduction of global CO2 emissions, based on accepted LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) standards.
