The ADEME founded Club CO2 in 2002 with the support of the IFP Energies Nouvelles and (BRGM . Since March 19th, 2016, Club CO2 became a non-profit association registered under French law with the BRGM as Chairman and EDF et IFPEn as administratos. The Club brings together the actors of the industrial world and of research. A key element in the organization of French research in the field of carbon capture and storage, it serves as a response to the need of a more effective management for national efforts, while creating better public visibility. The members of the Club CO2 are all key players in the industry, research and development. As a clearinghouse for information, dialogue and good practices among its members on CCUS research and technological developments, the Club CO2 encourages cooperation at a national level between public and private sectors, and several research projects have since then been initiated under its tutelage.
