The Spanish CO2 Technology Platform Association (PTECO2) is an initiative developed by Spain’s private sector, research centres and universities. It is partly funded by the Ministry of Finance and Competitiveness (MINECO) and contains representatives of that ministry and also of the Ministries of Industry, Energy and Tourism (MINETUR) and Agriculture, Food and the Environment (MAGRAMA).
PTECO2’s general brief is to encourage technological development in Spain so as to help reduce the environmental, social and economic impact of greenhouse gas emissions in our country.
Our mission is to promote the development and deployment of CCS technologies and CO2 uses with the aim that Spain should meet its emission reduction commitments and build a competitive CO2 sector.
PTECO2’s chief goal is to create a favourable environment for investment in R&D and innovation, foster the creation of an innovative business fabric and increase technological capacity in processes for efficiency improvement and CO2 capture, transportation, storage and utilisation, and to support the rolling out of these technologies in industry.
