C-Capture’s careers for the future

C-Capture, developers of world-leading carbon capture technology, are exhibiting at a series of graduate recruitment fairs, highlighting future career opportunities within the Leeds-based company.

An innovative UK cleantech company, C-Capture have been at the forefront of carbon capture technology for over a decade. C-Capture was founded in 2009 as a spin-out company from the University of Leeds following investment from IP Group to commercialise work from the company’s Founder, Professor Chris Rayner’s research group – which had been working with CO2 to find new solutions to the carbon capture problem.

The company has grown rapidly since its inception, expanding from a team of 5 in 2018 to over 30 to date; and achieving several award wins and successful project launches. The company is now expanding to include commercialisation as well as research and development and aims to double the number of colleagues over the next two years as it demonstrates then deploys C-Capture’s unique carbon capture technology internationally, across a broad range of industrial sectors.

Tom White, CEO, C-Capture said:

“As our team grows, we’re looking for talented, driven people to make valuable contributions across all areas of the company as we develop our technology to its maximum potential and play a critical role in building a more sustainable future.

“Our unique, solvent-based technology is a true innovation in the sector. Based on fundamentally different chemistry to current commercially available solutions, our technology is lower-cost, environmentally benign, and extremely robust.  These advantages mean it has the potential to break through barriers that are preventing the widespread adoption of carbon capture and storage technology, which in turn will help mitigate the impacts of climate change.

“This is the decisive decade for decarbonisation. And our technology has the potential to help solve the climate emergency.”

Professor Chris Rayner, C-Capture’s Founder and Director and Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Leeds, said:

“I really believe that we have only just scratched the surface of this new technology – the future of C-Capture is tremendously exciting. What began as an interesting but challenging research project, has turned into a real opportunity to make a major contribution to combatting climate change that goes beyond our wildest dreams.

“We have a unique opportunity, and a real responsibility, to develop and deploy the technology as quickly as possible to maximise our impact on the current climate emergency. We need more enthusiastic, talented and dedicated people to help us realise this challenge.”

Lucy Bedborough graduated from the University in Leeds in 2019 before joining C-Capture as a Chemist.

Lucy said:

“I enjoy working for C-Capture as it’s a really diverse role and fast-paced environment where I’m constantly learning. I’ve had some fantastic opportunities whilst working here, including supporting a project which involved deployment of our technology at the SINTEF Tiller pilot facility in Norway. It’s great to be working in such an important industry where our work will contribute towards the goal of achieving net zero by 2050.”
