New Carbon Economy Consortium

The New Carbon Economy Consortium is an alliance of universities, national labs, and NGOs working in partnership with industry leaders to build a carbon-conscious world.

We believe human ingenuity and innovation can enable a prosperous, growing economy that captures and stores more carbon than it emits.

The New Carbon Economy Consortium (NCEC) evolved from the premise that rapid development, assessment and deployment of carbon capture technologies and practices requires a new way for universities, national laboratories and NGO’s to work together. Through a robust network, the NCEC continues to build the intellectual basis for engineered, biological and social solutions, and – most importantly – their implications for society.

An Innovative Plan

By convening researchers from across institutions and disciplines to pose new research questions, share resources and develop pathways towards the widespread deployment of carbon removal solutions, we have set forth an innovation agenda for a new carbon economy. In this report, you can expect to find a technical review of solutions, the identification of research gaps, and recommendations for the Consortium’s future work.
