The NET4CO2 CoLAB
NET4CO2 is a Portuguese Collaborative Laboratory, a nonprofit R&D organization focused on creating sustainable industrial solutions to respond to the European Green Deal ambition for climate neutrality in 2050
The CO2 paradox
Our current lifestyle is highly dependent on non-renewable energy sources, such as petroleum, natural gas, or coal. Extracting energy from fossil fuels results in releasing unwanted particles and in an abnormal increase in CO2 in the atmosphere.
The pace at which these CO2 emissions are increasing is faster than the Earth’s capability to adapt. The consequences are already noticeable, with the frequency of extreme natural events rising over the last few years and causing endless ecosystems destruction.
Mission & Vision
Our mission is to develop innovative decarbonization solutions, from science to market, and accelerate the deployment of competitive and disruptive solutions for CO2 capture, utilization, and storage towards a more sustainable world.
We envisage to be an active player in decarbonization technological solutions, contributing to the industrial and social reforms needed to reduce CO2 emissions.
We seek to promote
Creation of qualified and scientific employment in Portugal
Offer efficient and cost-effective alternative solutions and technical consultancy
Development of new processes and products that provide competitive solutions
