Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is a non-profit global organization focused on driving the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a net-zero carbon-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. CATF is highly respected for its deep expertise and research on energy and industrial systems and potential strategies, technologies, and policies that can radically shrink those systems’ impact on the planet’s atmosphere. Our team of experts and advocates (and global network of subject matter experts and civil society partners) put this research and knowledge into action by designing and enacting public policies that drive toward zero emissions. We also support policies and work directly with private industry to innovate in technology to make the path to zero emissions swift and affordable.
CATF is chartered in the US and Netherlands. CATF also operates globally through work with partners in Europe, Asia, Canada, Latin America, and in multilateral international forums. CATF is currently expanding its presence in Europe and seeks to strengthen its advocacy and analytical efforts through this hire. Current areas of focus include advancing zero-carbon fuels (ZCF, particularly hydrogen and ammonia), at scale deployment of carbon capture, removal, and storage, and pushing for public policies to rein in methane pollution from the oil and gas sector both in the EU and from oil and gas imported to the EU.
CATF is one of the leading nonprofit organizations working on carbon capture, removal, and storage policies. Among the successes of its work are the US 45Q tax credit, as well as the US Energy Act of 2020. Advocating for environmentally responsible deployment of carbon capture, removal, and storage, CATF has decided to expand its engagement on the topic in Europe to accelerate industrial decarbonization and the formation of an innovation landscape.
