Co-Founder and CEO, Cemvita Factory
Cemvita Factory is a synthetic biology startup based in Houston focused on decarbonizing the heavy industries with the application of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS). CCUS is a collaborative field by nature and the Global CCS Institute has been extremely helpful in connecting different players across the supply chain through fruitful events and direct introductions to the member network. We have also enjoyed the access to the CO2RE portal to stay up-to-date with the latest CCUS projects. Finally, the membership has allowed us to learn more about the 45Q tax credits and evaluate the impact on our business model.
Bridgeport Energy Ltd
Bridgeport Energy is a business which expects to have a significant CO2 exposure in the foreseeable future. This represents an opportunity for Bridgeport and also a first for Australia but does give rise to a number of issues. We approached the Global CCS Institute with one of those issues namely the identification and understanding of local and international attitudes to CO2 employed in enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) operations as a greenhouse gas abatement technology.
The Global CCS team delivered a concise assessment of current local and international views and also where the oil industry stands both here and overseas on the matter. The study provided recommended steps that could be taken for CO2-EOR to be formally recognised by the Australian Federal Government as a greenhouse gas abatement technology.
The Institute’s global connections were key to the timely success of this project. I commend the Global CCS Institute Consultancy and the professionalism and expertise of the team who contributed to the study. I look forward to working with them in the future to advance the study’s recommendations.

As a technology that is capable of reducing substantial CO2 emissions, it is important not only for Japan but also for the entire world to put CCS into practical use and realize its commercialisation. I would like to extend my respect to activities of the Global CCS Institute, which is working to promote the worldwide deployment of CCS.

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is one of the important technologies for low carbon energy transition and green development. The Global CCS Institute, a highly professional and international organization focusing on the area, contributes positive and integral impacts to CCUS demonstration and large-scale commercial operation not only in China but also worldwide.
