TCGR - CO2CC Program

CO2 Capture and Conversion (CO2CC) Program

The Carbon Dioxide Capture and Conversion (CO2CC) Program is a membership-directed consortium, launched in January 2010, whose members are involved in developing, monitoring and utilizing the “state-of-the-art” in technological progress and commercial implementation of carbon dioxide capture and conversion.

The program's objective is to document and assess technically and commercially viable options for the capture/clean-up/utilization of CO2 and its mitigation via energy efficiency gains which meaningfully address the challenges posed by CO2 life-cycle and overall sustainability issues.
Included in the program’s scope are:

  • CO2 capture and/or separation
  • CO2 concentration, purification and/or other post-treatment
  • CO2 utilization/conversion (e.g., CO2 as a feedstock) for use as a fuel or intermediate, including enhanced oil recovery (EOR)
  • Energy requirements (and other costs), including energy efficiency
  • Industrial process improvements and energy saving initiatives which mitigate CO2 production
  • Bottom-line financial (income) impacts resulting from CO2 reduction programs
  • Life-cycle considerations and sustainability of CO2 applications
  • GHG/CO2 regulation and “cap and trade” developments

By the direction of the member companies (through balloting and other interactive means) and operated by TCGR, the program delivers weekly monitoring communications via email (CO2CC Communiqués), three techno-economic reports (highly referenced and peer reviewed) and scheduled meetings of members (either in-person or via webinar). Access to deliverables is exclusive to members.
In addition to the program deliverables, TCGR works with members to identify and foster competitive advantage and opportunity. This value-added relationship, along with active participation by the membership, leads to improved (or unique) external R&D and commercial investment possibilities.
Members maintain strong relationships with contact points (“liaisons”) and benefit from preferred communications between themselves. Companies which have been involved in the program since initiation include:

Braskem Evonik-Degussa Repsol
Chevron King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) Suncor

Mitsubishi Chemical (via the Kaiteki Institute)

Total SA
Dow Chemical National Institute for Clean and Low Carbon Energy (NICE), PRC UOP, LLC
ExxonMobil Reliance  


For more information, including a “Membership Agreement” delineating the deliverables and how the membership works, please contact John J. Murphy, Program Director at John.J.Murphy AT or +1-215-628-4447.
