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 a 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.

The Carbon Capture Technology and Markets Director, EU will serve as CATF’s lead technology and markets expert for carbon capture, removal, and storage in the EU and work to expand the role of carbon capture, removal, and storage in decarbonizing emissions-intensive sectors as well reducing atmospheric concentration of CO2. The Director will work with CATF’s carbon capture team to further CATF’s policy, communications and advocacy objectives to commercialize these technologies via a supportive policy framework and active support for project development. As part of this role, the Director will work to expand CATF’s private-sector network and to draw new actors from other sectors such as technology and aviation into the industry through dedicated engagement and education. The Director will develop policy and business cases in the EU and member states, reflecting the evolving technical and commercial realities of carbon capture, removal, and storage and including the bridge from demonstration to at-scale deployment in Europe. The Director will also develop, communicate and socialize a viable deployment strategy for carbon capture, removal, and storage value chains and hubs in Europe, including CO2 networks. Areas of particular focus include CO2 infrastructure, including CO2 transport and storage, understanding current and future project’s needs, and the development of a commercial ecosystem that can drive large-scale deployment.
The Carbon Capture Technology Director will report to the CCUS Policy Innovation Director (Co-Program Director and Project Lead). This position will also work closely with CATF European government affairs and communications staff, the Carbon Capture Policy Director, and other project leaders and issue experts based in Europe and the United States, and European partner organizations to help develop and execute public policy strategies in support of CATF’s program goals and objectives in the region.
