The Carbon to Value Initiative (C2V Initiative) has announced the fourth year of its carbontech accelerator program in collaboration with the Urban Future Lab at NYU Tandon School of Engineering (UFL), Greentown Labs, and Fraunhofer USA.

The C2V Initiative and its Carbontech Leadership Council (CLC) are welcoming applications from startups at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 4-7 that are developing carbontech solutions. More specifically, the program collaborators are interested in carbontech innovations related to the following categories:

🟢Carbon Conversion to Added-value Products, including CO2 to fuels (e.g. SAF/e-fuels), CO2 to chemicals (e.g. methanol and higher carbon products such as C4+), biomass-based and/or other waste-carbon to value (e.g. chemical recycling, gasification, biochar), and carbon mineralisation (e.g. to building products, carbonates, fertilisers).

🟢Carbon Capture, including point-source capture (e.g. from energy and process emissions, hydrogen production, etc.), direct-air capture (DAC), and gas-separation technologies (e.g. purification, biogas upgrading).

🟢Carbon Sequestration and Removal, including enhanced mineralisation and ocean alkalinisation, and nature-based solutions (e.g. soil, forest, ocean).

Successful startups will be able to work closely with industry, government, and nonprofit leaders to identify and activate avenues for technology validation, testing, and demonstration. They will also have the opportunity to engage with the CLC, of which CO2 Value Europe is a member (represented by our Secretary General Anastasios Perimenis), an invitation-only group of executive leaders across diverse industry sectors driving the future of carbontech.
