C-Capture is a growing Cleantech business based in Leeds, that has the potential to make a globally significant impact to combat climate change, with its patented carbon dioxide capture technology. 

We exist to help decarbonise industries, and the world, with transformative carbon capture solutions, creating a cleaner, better future for us all. 

Investors include IP Group, Drax, and BP Ventures. Since the summer of 2018, we have expanded the team from 5 to 40+ including a crop of extremely talented recent chemistry and engineering graduates who have quickly established themselves as key members of the technical team. The business support team is also expanding as we transition from a mostly research and development focused organisation to one that is on a firm commercial footing. We aim to double the number of colleagues again in the next 2 years, to demonstrate, then deploy our unique technology internationally across a broad range of industrial sectors.

As an award-winning start up with global ambitions, we were founded by some of the greatest minds in their field. Expertise is our foundation, but we are always ready to admit what we don’t know, as what we do know, so we never stop learning, and always strive to develop our skills.
