The main activities of the Spanish CO2 Technology Platform are:

  • Promoting R&D plans on CO2 capture, transportation, storage and utilisation technologies, especially in the fields of energy, the environment and industry.
  • Supporting initiatives by Spanish companies aimed at the big demonstration plants being developed in Europe and consolidating those already under way.
  • Promoting, together with the EU, a specific legislative framework for CO2 capture, transportation, storage and utilisation allowing major projects to be carried out in Spain.
  • Creating and using technologies that reduce CO2 emissions in the sectors involved in the national emissions allocation plan.
  • Identifying and supporting the development of storage facilities.
  • Promoting the necessary legislative and regulatory framework allowing capture and storage to be a regulated activity in which duties and responsibilities are clearly defined.
  • Publicising technologies relating to CO2 capture, transportation, storage and utilisation with the aim of cultivating an objective perception in society of these technologies’ role and potential.

These activities are aimed at facilitating the fulfilment of the Technological Pathway for Spain described below.
